    James Farm wants to get Istanbulites’ toes tapping

    James Farm—featuring Joshua Redman, pianist Aaron Parks, bassist Matt Penman and drummer Eric Harland—will perform at Iþ Sanat Cultural Center in Istanbul on Saturday night. In advance of the concert, Penman spoke with Today's Zaman's Rumeysa Kiger about how the organic origins of the band and why the musicians work together as well as they do.

     

    “As a rhythm section Aaron, Eric and I had played together a lot, and I think there’s a lot of mutual admiration there," Penman says. "Eric and I had also played a lot with Josh over the years, an inspiring time, so when Josh heard all of us playing on Aaron’s album and the unique compositional voice that Aaron presents there, the seed of a band was sown."

     

    Read the interview, including a bit of why the band is so looking forward to performing in Istanbul, at todayszaman.com.
