Easy Street Records

A session is a meeting of a deliberative body to conduct it's business. In this case, the business is music, and the music is another heavyweight long player from Ilhan Ersahin & crew. Upon listening to the record for the first time, one word overrides every other emotion and devours the mind: Cinema. More specifically, "cinematic." Ersahin's sax sounds like it was recorded in the fucking Alps. Or in the sweeping sand dunes and Oasis's of the Middle East. It's just that W I D E. On "Falling," Ersahin's sax is practically 3-dimensional. Double tracked and bathed in a healthy dose of reverb, the saxophone and rhythm of the band evoke a story-like narrative. From the mad-man trills strewn throughout the track, to the soaring, almost stadium anthem chorus. Clearly, it's all about the (s)axe, and Ilhan Ersahin is YOUR axeman.
