Cem Tan Quintet

Cem Tan - Album Front - Square.jpg

An experimental jazz album, created as a result of  3-day sessions in a quintet format, thet meets at the initiative of a drummer.



Cem Tan, who is responsible of that action, is an avant-garde drummer, multi-instrumentalist and a composer known for his unique style that goes beyond the patterns and measurements generally understood in the conventional music scene. With his omnidirectional drumming and a polytonal fashion, he introduces another dimension to what we think, we know of the drums that renders them a harmonious instrument that can sing like the piano or the windy instruments.
