More appropriately, Whatsnext which is the title of a new CD and an upcoming concert in Providence by Mehmet Ali Sanlikol and Whatsnext. I have known Mehmet Ali Sanlikol and his music from my days with the Turkish American Cultural Society of RI (TACSRI). He can switch from 17th century mehter music to modern jazz tunes, and anything in between on a dime! The new work composed by Mehmet Ali, Whatsnext, actually blends Turkish/Ottoman music with jazz and creates a unique signature blend. The CD is apparently on the Grammy ballot, and the work has received very good reviews. Best of luck at the Grammy Mehmet Ali.
The good news is that TACSRI is bringing Whatsnext to Providence on October 2, 2014 a the RISD Auditorium. Knowing their previous concerts and having listened to their other CDs and DVDs I am sure this will be an excellent experience. Below is a sample piece from Whatsnext, you will get a taste of what’s ahead, Whatsnext! Then, point your browser to the concert page on the TACSRI site and get your tickets; at $20 per person it sounds like a bargain, doesn’t it?
