Album Notes
"Very much in the mold of mainline bop quintet recordings is the in-concert disc spearheaded by Turkish trumpet man Maffy Falay. Aided and abetted by Swedish players Bernt Rosengren, Ake Johansson, and Per-Ola Gadd along with fellow Turk Selahattin Can Kozlu, the unit presents a united notion as to how music can cross all cultural and geographical boundaries. Followers of the European scene will already know what fine musicians Rosengren and Johansson are, but it is the leader who is the biggest surprise here. The most impressive aspect of his playing is a large and beautiful tone in the tradition of Brown, Lee Morgan, Hubbard and the like."
-Larry Holis, Cadence - October 1996, The Review of Jazz & Blues: Creative Improvised Music

Album Comments:
Considered to be in the same league as Miles Davis by Dizzy Gillespie, Turkish trumpet player Maffy Falay and his Quintet are best known for their sophisticated brand of swinging hard bop rooted in the music of the fifties. Falay's Quintet make their preferred brand of jazz sound as alive and vibrant as if they had only just discovered it's joyous rhythms yesterday.
