David Murray Flowers for Memo

Concert
David Murray Flowers for Memo

Grammy winning jazz musician David Murray’s first visit to Turkey in 1990, 25 years ago, was organized by Mehmet Uluğ. Later on, after the death of Uluğ, with whom the musician became close friends, in 2013, he composed a 3 part suite. “Mehmet Uluğ Suite” was first performed by David Murray and Infınity Quartet for the first time in March this year, in Babylon, which was co-founded by Uluğ himself. The music that came out during this performance was so powerful and meaningful that it became an album project. Produced by Brian Bacchus, who previously worked for musicians like Norah Jones and Gregory Porter, this album will be recorded at Babajim Istanbul Studios a week before the Akbank Jazz Festival. Along with “Mehmet Uluğ Suite”, David’s Murray’s tribute work for the Butch Morris and Sun Ra track that he dedicated to Pozitif, will make the repertoire of his concert to take place at the Akbank Jazz Festival.
