This session, led by a Turkish guitarist who toggles back and forth between fretless and traditional axes, also finds drummer Tyshawn Sorey in fine form. Test out the title-track opener, which drifts from a dreamy main theme to a funk-influenced breakdown in the middle section. At first a playground for Sahin and Sorey (and bassist Christopher Tordini), it occasionally adds the sax and trumpet voices back, to surprising effect. The influence of Ornette Coleman looms over a few of these compositions, but the distinctness of the individual players helps the session find its own style.
