Mehmet Ozan - "Istanbul Express" {Denmark} [1979] turkish folk jazz/fusion


Like Okay Temiz, Mehmet Ozan also built his music career outside of Turkey. As far as i know he was member of several great bands such as Balkan, Bazaar and worked with several musicians like Anders Koppel, Alex Riel, Mads Vinding who are also premier jazz musicians of Denmark today. The album name, Istanbul Express, later become the name of the band. Under the name Istanbul Express they did two more albums. This is their first. Sound of the album is between Okay Temiz's works and early Moğollar. Various Music styles such as Brasilian samba, forró; Caucassian lezginka mixed with traditional turkish folk fusion added a nice colorful mood to the songs. A hidden gem for the lovers of east meets with west works.
