CD Reviews

Master of Turkish Sufi ney
Neyzen Hasan | 04/20/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Neyzen Aka Gunduz Kutbay (d. 1979) was often considered the best of his generation to embody the Sufi spirit of Turkish ney playing. His breathy, un-flute-like timbre, his emphasis of the lowest notes, and his obvious passion conveyed that spirit. The Playasound CD brings out these qualities in a series of remarkable unaccompanied solo improvisations (taksim), the longest of which lasts for an unmatched 23 minutes. Contents: Rast, Segah, Nihavent, Hicaz, Rast. Recorded 1991 in France."
