Ilhan Ersahin's Wonderland
featuring Husnu Senlendirici, Alp Ersonmez,
Volkan Oktem, Izzet Kizil
Back in 2013, New York based Istanbuler Ilhan Ersahin (tenor saxophone) and clarinet virtuoso Hüsnü Şenlendirici got together once again with their master level musician friends Alp Ersönmez (bass), Volkan Öktem (drums), Izzet Kızıl (percussion) and performed 4 songs for a warm, friendly live session at their two favorite spots in Istanbul: terrace of Yakup 2 Restaurant (where they used to have their memorable dinners before concerts at the city’s legendary club Babylon); and terrace of Büyük Londra Otel (which we can call “Ersahin’s home in Istanbul”, with its authentic spirit and beautiful view). Since then the videos reached a wide interest on Youtube. As we all are globally locked down homes, the band got back to the tapes, cleaned the mixes and invites you now to these beautiful terraces for some fresh air.
