On My Way
The material leading up to "Play!" is equally impressive. The spirit of guitarist John Scofieldlooms large over Bakir's playing, in particular on "Blues for Istanbul" and "Karma," where the entire trio seems to relish the opportunity to cut loose, the music resonating with a great sense of urgency. Kneeland's delivers his strongest solo the album, as he flies through the music with impassioned technique and energy. "Blues For Istanbul" has a cooler demeanor in its DNA, but happens to have one of the hippest feels of any tracks on the album.
This trio outing certainly demonstrates that Sinan Bakir is, indeed, on his way.
