One of the outstanding pianists and composers today . . . At the cutting edge of the world music. —Ahmet Ertegun, Atlantic Records
An unrepentant romantic, Turkish-American pianist-composer-arranger Fahir Atakoğlu is all-in For Love (Far & Here, LLC) on his 18th album as a leader. A visionary undertaking that blends musical elements from Turkey, Spain, Italy, the Middle East, Cuba and Brazil while revealing touches of American jazz in the freewheeling improvisations heard throughout, For Love also carries the majestic sweep of symphonic polyphony in Fahir's stirring string orchestrations. With world-class musicians in American saxophonist Bob Franceschini, Canadian bassist Alain Caron, Turkish percussionist Mustafa Boztuy and Cuban drumming marvel Horacio "El Negro" Hernandez,

For Love also features an international cast of vocalists in Spain's Buika, Brazil's Luciana Souza, Italy's Letizia Gambi and American rising star jazz singer Aimée Allen, each contributing lyrics while singing in their native tongue.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
