Album Notes
In 2014, I started to plan my next project. I wanted to record this in Los Angeles. I sent my new compositions to Alan Broadbent. I wanted to have Bill Evans' drummer Joe LaBarbera on this album. I had listened to him numerous times on Bill Evans' late recordings. Alan suggested Darek Oles for double bass. I had heard great things about Darek and Ernie Watts had also recommended him earlier. I went all the way to Los Angeles and recorded “Spring Water” at United Records Studios with strings orchestra that was organized by Alan.

I always tell myself to take it easy for a while after a big and risky project like this one, but my desire to record with orchestras never ends. Now that "Spring Water" is finished, we are already working towards the next one. Alan has already written four new arrangements and the plan is to record in 2018.

I would like to thank Alan Broadbent for changing my path in music and life, the legendary Joe LaBarbera for supporting me rhythmically (preventing me from rushing) and painting a work of art with his brushes, Darek Oles for the excellent solos and his steady and laid-back accompaniment. They all made me so happy! I look forward to recording the next projects with them.

Spring and fall seasons have always been very important in my life. I thing of autumn as disappearance and spring as existence. For me, they are transitions from a pastel colored life to vivid one straight out of a Technicolor movie.

I dedicated my album, “I Love May” to my wife, Pinar, upon her return from the US in 1995. "Spring Water” also tells a story which is again dedicated to her. "Requiem For Soma" is dedicated to the miners who lost their lives in the mining disaster of May 2014. "Lady Misty" is written for our Bolognese dog Misty, "Mistrust" was written after a betrayal that we witnessed as a family, "Simple Day" is a story of a simple day that I've spent. "Weekend" is a jazz waltz that I wrote during a happy weekend, "Marathi Island" is a Greek island that I love and visit frequently and "Innocence" is a composition that I wrote for my daughter Nisan many years ago.
