Vibist Dan Neville is home for the holidays, and he’s slipping into Bird & Beckett for a quartet date, joined by pianist Bilge Gunaydin, bassist Aaron Germain and drummer Mike Mitchell!
Dan has been studying composition this past semester in the renowned jazz program at William Patterson University back east in New Jersey, and for this engagement he brings along a classmate, pianist Bilge Gunaydin, one of the “brightest lights of the Istanbul jazz scene,” according to a review on the “All About Jazz” site.
Bilge’s 2020 release “Daydreams” rides on “the evocative pulling-power of Bilge’s compositions. They charm the listener with quirky harmonic turns, melodic imagination and variety in the arrangements.”
The reviewer goes on to note that “From open-sounding wind arrangements to nostalgic Turkish tango evocations, this album makes you indeed daydream.”
