Robert Mehmet Sinan Ikiz As an integral member of acclaimed outfits Nils Landgren Funk Unit, Magnus Lindgren Batacuda Jazz and Dan Reed Band, 32-year-old drummer and percussionist Robert Mehmet Sinan Ikiz has already toured the world several times over. The wealth of places, people and musical styles he has encountered on his travels has helped shape the diverse sound of Ikiz's debut recording as a leader, Checking In (Stockholm Jazz Records, 2012).

James Pearse spoke with Ikiz recently about the road to Checking In, including the inspiration for the writing, and the multinational cast of players, from countries including the United States, France, Sweden and Turkey.
