Sevda is a unique fusion of Turkish music and Swedish jazz, which grooves naturally in exotic time signatures (like 7/8 and 9/4), blending textures, rhythms and swinging improvisations into an exciting whole. It was recorded live at a TV studio, and at the time nobody had any idea it would be issued as a record. On drums is the great Okay Temiz, who also played with Don Cherry for some time (as well as did Maffy Falay).

the perfect link between onxidlib´s upload of the bernt rosengren quartet and the temiz-dyani lp from a few days ago.
it is a mono-LP, but it burns!

Intriguing, this one, with a strong Turkish flavour, as could be expected. And in glorious mono!

I've been listening a lot to this one and liking it the more I listen. There is a potential theme here we might explore more - namely "jazzified" folk music or traditional music. I'm planning to go deeper into it in coming posts.

Now THIS is a find and a half. A find and THREE QUARTERS, in fact! Thanks a million! :o)

Wow! Thanks a million! Really looking forward to this one!

Great series of Swedish rare grooves you've got going. About to DL them all in the next coming weeks (as I'm currently sitting on a slow connection, which is a drag)
