Description

One of Turkey's leading pianists, Burak Bedikyan has been rapidly establishing himself as a star player on the international jazz scene since the release of his first SteepleChase album, 2013's 'Circle of Life'. For 'Leap of Faith' Bedikyan further showcases an exciting process of on-going development as a performer and composer with unique musical background.

On this album of all original material, Bedikyan is joined by an impressive group of American musicians - saxophonist Chris Cheek, bassist Ron McClure and drummer Billy Drummond.

Personnel: Burak Bedikyan (piano), Chris Cheek (tenor and soprano saxophone), Ron McClure (bass), Billy Drummond (drums)

Critical reaction to 'Circle of Life':

"This is an interesting overture for the Turkish newcomer, but it sounds like there's much more in reserve." - John Fordham, The Guardian

"Bedikyan is a name to remember and an artist whose musical stock is an arrow pointing straight up!" - Brent Black, Bop-N-Jazz
