Ojanu Records, 2013, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Fusion
O’s Notes: Turkish drummer and percussionist Emrah Kotan leads a jazz-fusion band in multiple configurations ranging from three to six members. They play ten selections, a mix of tempos, seven composed by Kotan. The New Anatolian Experience is a balanced effort and a fitting debut for Kotan. The blend of world music and modern jazz moves shows promise especially on “Ottoman Slap”.
