Album Notes
Having made records for over 15 years at this point, i'm not sure I've come across such a strong opening as Toprak, which sets the mood for the entire project, a bland of Jazz, Turkish Folk, and Blues in a way I've never heard before. No album would be complete without a contemplative ballad and February is special. Josh Peters' singing was unexpected, but fits in only the way Josh could make it. Once the groove kicks in, this is just a wonderful journey through a moment in time. Vesvese brings more influence from Turkey with a great groove in 7/8 where Ted's drumming is outstanding and Engin's solo are particular standouts. Ever Tried Ever Failed was recorded about a month later with Josh on both Oud and Drums. The Oud break on this track is particularly memorable. 7 Is the New 4 is my personal favorite of the album with stellar playing all around. The Duel features Serthat playing the Baglama which is truly a delight. Black Saba is reminiscent of the great hard rock of the 1970s with a unique style only this group could great. Heartache and Snow are duos with a fretless nylon guitar played by Engin and Josh playing the Oud.

I hope you enjoy listening to this album as much as I enjoyed getting to make it.
