Instrumentals tend to get used as flexible buffers to be put at the end of radio shows, where we can say ‘goodbye, see you next week’ and fade them if they don’t fit exactly. This week, four of the six tracks are instrumental, so three get a chance to be heard in their entirety and with no interruption.

Taksim Trio: Hüsnü Senlendirici, Ismael Tunçbilek and Aytaç Dogan

With fortunate timing, the new issue of fRoots has just arrived, containing a full length interview with the Taksim Trio conducted in Istanbul by Nick Hobbs. Clarinettist Hüsnü Senlendirici has recently topped the Turkish album charts with The Joy of the Clarinet (also on Doublemoon). Aytaç Dogan (who plays qanun) and Ismael Tunçbilek (baglama, a long-necked equivalent of a saz or oud) are from Roma families who grew up in the Anatolian city of Bursa whose different lifestyle “gives ground for prejudice from uneducated and bad-willed peopleâ€

The album is actually titled "Husn-U Klarnet" which may well translate as "the Joy of Clarinet" but which is clearly a pun/ word game on Husnu's name of the sort so beloved of musicians worldwide. Husnu's surname (Senlenderici pron. Shenlenderiji) incidentally translates as "those who celebrate" - a testimony to his family's lineage as musicians.
The 'Husn-U Klarnet' album has turned him into a superstar in Turkey. There are some great tunes amongst its overproduced mix, but his 'Bergama Gaydasi' or 'Ciftetelli' album with the 'Laco Tayfa' band is the one to head for if you want the best tunes, and without the studio glossiness.

Thank you for satisfying my request by playing music from Italy and Argentina. It looks like we have the same musical taste.

I wish your programme would last longer.

Best regards,
