June 30th Concert in Istanbul, Turkey

We've just returned from a great two days in Istanbul. The Sheraton Atakoy ( is putting on a jazz festival this month. Bennie Golson and Ingrid Jensen among others have been featured. I was thrilled to bring Mark Soskin, Dean Johnson and Tim Horner for this gig. We did miss our girl, Sara Caswell (she was in concert elsewhere). I've got some pics of our concert. We would like to Thank: Onder & Zuhal Focan and Manifesto Productions for everything! We had a great show and a Lot of good Turkish food.
