Hüsnü Şenlendirici & Laço Tayfa : Bergama Gaydasi (TURKEY 2000)
New (and Old) Turkish Music
Laço Tayfa who gained instant notoriety with the highly respected album 'In The BuzzBag' they recorded with Brooklyn Funk Essentials are now back with their own brand.Some of the tracks on their debut album 'Bergama Gaydasi,'such as:Malatya,Izmir'in Kavaklari,Fidayda and Çiftetelli have already become anthems of the music markets on Istiklal Cad which is thought to keep the pulse of the recording industry at large.In this album,Laço Tayfa -which is founded and led by Turkish clarinet virtuoso Hüsnü Şenlendirici- combines the traditional sounds of Asia Minor and Thrace with Laço Tayfa magic and a highly sophisticated infrastructure.Contemporary musician/composer/conductor/legend Lawrence 'Butch' Morris sat in as a consultant for this unorthodox project.Laco Tayfa works with tradional folk material from each of the regions of Turkey,using signature Roma tunes as a basis for a new synthesis which incorporates jazz harmonies,riffs and textures with Indian tabla as well as North African and Arabic rhythmic patterns.The album written and composed by gifted musicians captures the quality of a travelogue which will be fully experienced by music lovers.
