Product description

Product Description

Iranian kamancheh player Kayan Kalhor's 'East meets East' projects have brought some tantalizing cultural hybrids to full flower. The ongoing collaboration with Anatolian baglama master Erdal Erzincan is one of the most striking of them. The source material for their improvisations in this intense and fascinating performance - recorded in Bursa, to the south of Istanbul - includes music from all over Turkey and music of traditional Persian provenance.

These two master musicians from Teheran and Erzurum intertwine melodies, revisit "The Wind" (title piece of their previous ECM recording), and create instrumental music which acknowledges tradition but declines to be restricted by it. The album title, from the folk song of the same name by the great baglama player Muhlis Akarsu, translates as "How unseemly it is to follow anyone slavishly" - a motto of some pertinence to all the spheres of life, from the personal to the political to the spiritual. Interpreted artistically, as on this exciting album, it could allude to the creative freedoms implied by traditional music.

Much of Kayhan Kalhor's music has explored the nexus of the traditional and the innovative. When the collaboration with Erdal Erzincan began, Kalhor sketched out his blueprint for the meeting: "I'm looking for something that departs from nothing and then goes into developing material, and then goes into something else really improvised..." This was the ground plan for "The Wind", the first of the Kalhor/Erzincan albums, recorded in 2004. A great deal of shared work since then has intensified the concept, and this live album, which Kalhor considers one of his strongest recorded statements, shows how the music has moved to the next level in terms of the improvised content and the nature of the relationship between the two instruments.

Personnel: Kayhan Kalhor (kamancheh), Erdal Erzincan (baglama)

Review

(4 stars) Traditional Persian and Turkish tunes are punctuated with breathstopping improvised passages with age-old roots, culminating in 10 minutes of 'Intertwining Melodies' from both cultures. --Financial Times, (David Honigmann), September 8, 2013

(4 stars) Magnificent music...what these two musicians achieve on their joint flight paths of the kemancheh spike fiddle and baglama, with the rise and fall of the melodic lines, is nothing short of stupendous. --Jazzwise, (Ken Hunt), December 2013 / January 2014

There is a rich ebb and flow to the music which builds to intense climaxes and relaxes into more pensive interludes...The highpoint has to be the nine minutes of Intertwining Melodies...it's also amazing what an expansive range of sounds and feelings these two instruments can summon up - at their busiest they sound like an orchestra. --The Jazz Breakfast, (Peter Bacon), September 21, 2013
