"From the introduction of flute into jazz, artist have spent countless years researching, listening and exploring its contribution to this style of music.
Sarpay’s unique use of the flute in contemporary jazz has expanded the versatility and universal appeal of the instrument further than previously envisaged.
"Unexpectable" stands out as a ground breaking contemporary solo triumph complemented by a full band experiment exploring and achieving the flute’s full potential in the language of jazz and contemporary music.
It offers a fine mixture of jazz with an occasional hint of the Turkish Rhythms and introduces the new contemporary groove jazz music for flute.
Sarpay’s flute moves effortlessly through smooth, progressive tunes and elements of funk, drama, and at times, romanticism allowing the audience to connect to the music in a distinctive way.
Sarpay's band is a quartet comprised of flute plus digital effects applied by live, piano and keys, electric bass and drums. This project will inspire thought, emotion, and musical innovation."
