JAZZIZ Travel: Mehmet Ali Sanlıkol

Turkish-American GRAMMY-nominated pianist/composer/scholar Mehmet Ali Sanlıkol deepens his singular approach to melding the sonorities of Turkish music with contemporary jazz on his forthcoming LP, An Elegant Ritual, due out July 16 via the DÜNYA label. This is a landmark release in his discography also because, while he has worked within a wide range of settings in the past, An Elegant Ritual marks his first-ever trio recordings, featuring James James Heazlewood-Dale on acoustic bass and George Lernis on drums, gongs and bendir. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/jazziz/support
