VARIOUS - Bosporus Bridges: A Wide Selection Of Turkish Jazz And Funk, TWIMO RECORDS
'Bosporus Bridges' collects eleven heavy jazz and funk grooves from Turkey circa 1968-1978. Like Baris K's killer edit selection, 'Istanbul 70', this LP reveals a hitherto largely unknown world meeting east and west in unique fashion. However, this one's less psych and disco, more jazz and funk, covering the uptempo burn of Fikret Kizilok's 'Aybatti (edit)' along with the crazed electronics and deadly funk downstroke of 'Aksu Orkestrasi's 'Bermuda Seytan Ücgeni', the Brazilian-infected jazz of Erol Peckan's 'Senlik' and the awesome, snake-charming slink of 'Denizalti Rüzgarlari'.
