MEHMET ALI SANLIKOL & "whatsnext?"

Wednesday
October 1
Show: $25
Dinner & Show: $65
Show Time: 8pm



New CD "whatsnext?"
Turkish Cypriot Mehmet Ali Sanlıkol has just released his new CD, whatsnext. Of the nine big band compositions on the disc, eight were composed between 1996 and 2000. By mixing Turkish musical sounds with jazz, the disc is truly bilingual. Featuring some of the best musicians in Boston and some from New York as well, whatsnext has it all.

whatsnext is not only the title of composer, ethnomusicologist, pianist, multi-instrumentalist Sanlıkol's new CD, it is also the name of his sensational 12-piece ensemble, comprised of top flight Boston and New York based musicians who will be appearing at Scullers.

In addition to his primary instrument, piano, Sanlıkol also plays an end-blown flute called the ney, two double-reed pipes--the zurna and the duduk, a single reed pipe--the sipsi, a short necked lute called the ud, 3 long-necked lutes--the saz, the üç telli and the tanbur, a "spike" fiddle called the rebab, several Western instruments including guitar and drums and various sundry percussion instruments! And, that's not all, Mehmet is also a very fine vocalist as well. And at Scullers, Sanlıkol will debut his exciting high-tech new instrument, a Continuum Fingerboard! This is an amazing new keyboard instrument that allows the player to "bend" notes, producing the microtonal sounds heard in traditional Turkish music.

Mehmet Sanlıkol has composed for, performed and toured with a wide range of internationally known stars and ensembles including Tiger Okoshi, Bob Brookmeyer, Esperanza Spalding, Horacio “El Negro” Hernandez, Okay Temiz, Erkan Oğur, Yansımalar, Omar Faruk Tekbilek, Brenna MacCrimmon and The Boston Camerata. Sanlıkol has also composed, arranged, produced and performed with Turkish pop stars such as Fahir Atakoğlu, Burcu Güneş, Ümit Sayın, Edip Akbayram and Nil Karaibrahimgil.

ROCKAPELLA

Friday-Saturday
October 31-November 1
Show: $40
Dinner & Show: $80
Show Time:8pm & 10pm


Often imitated, never duplicated, this certifiably unique pop musical group has taken the traditional genre of a cappella to a new level.
The little miracle that keeps the crowds coming back year after year and constantly draws new fans is Rockapella's astonishing full-band sound. A sound that seems to be impossible coming from just five guys with microphones. No instruments, no tracks, no mirrors – and their hands never leave their wrists. "We're making every bit as much music as the whole Glee chorus – but with only five guys," says Rockapella's human beat-box Jeff Thacher.
