“Maffy’s Jazz”: Maffy Falay Tribute Band

Trumpet player Ahmet Muvaffak Falay, better known as Maffy Falay, was one of the Turkish jazz scene’s greatest talents. He passed away on February 22, 2022 at the age of 92. A popular jazz trumpet player in Europe during the 1960s, Maffy Falay was a favorite of such jazz legends as Dizzy Gillespie and Thelonious Monk and he shared the stage with Quincy Jones, Kenny Clarke, and Francy Boland. After six years of work, director Deniz Yüksel Abalıoğlu has completed the documentary “Maffy’s Jazz” about his passion for music and the overseas journeys this passion took him on. The documentary brings together interviews done with Maffy Falay at his home in Sweden with archive footage and scenes from his final concert in Stockholm in 2016. A special screening of the film will take place on October 1 at Akbank Sanat.

After the screening of “Maffy’s Jazz,” there will be a memorial concert to honor the musician and his musical legacy, with Hakan Rauf Tüfekçi and Hakan Atala’s introduction. Musicians who played with Falay during his concerts in Turkey, Engin Recepoğulları, Can Çankaya, Kağan Yıldız and Ferit Odman will perform as the Maffy Falay Tribute Band.
