Jazz drummer Ferit Odman's third album, "Dameronia With Strings" is a tribute to Tadd Dameron.
The remarkably sensitive played session by Ferit Odman, Terell Stafford, Peter Washington and Danny Grissett both as a band and ace soloists lets us dream up high above the sky together with a well-balanced, swinging string sextet and beautiful arrangements by David O'Rourke. This is a tribute to Tadd Dameron and gives us the chance to remember Dameron's influential approach to jazz as an orchestrator too. Just like Philly Joe Jones did with his Dameronia project, Odman takes us on a beautiful journey around the fantastic music composed by Tadd Dameron, this time with the addition of strings.
"Ferit has brought us both the big sound of the full set Gretsch in Nardis Jazz Club and the sound of the small bass drum, snare drum and his brushes just because he is doing what he loves. He has already pressed the elevator button to go high up!" - Emre Adam, Jazz Dergisi
"...pairs a jazz quartet with a string sextet and delves into some better-known Dameron compositions, including 'On A Misty Night,' 'If You Could See Me Now,' 'Smooth As The Wind,' 'Our Delight' and 'Soultrane.' Soloists Danny Grisell (piano) and trumpeter Terell Stafford (trumpet) both sparkle..." - Jeff Wilson, The Absolute Sound
