"Along The Street" is the title of a CD by the Turkish group "Asiaminor", released by "Face Music Switzerland".
Contemporary and creative music which is equally characterised by updated traditional ethnic influences and by suspenseful dealing with additional material, for instance from the sectors of jazz, jazz rock and rock, in the meantime has become the trademark of "Face Music". The seventh production by this label even exceeds its own standards.

For "Asiaminor" is a quartet which fascinates both by virtue of its collective unity and by the soloistic talents of each musician. This constellation makes it possible to combine traditional Turkish music and influences from contemporary jazz in such a terse and incisive style that in this one case the term "Ethno jazz" is surely appropriate, although the four musicians probe their free space in such a way that such labels are right away becoming absurd.

Thus this CD is an example for possible statements that tie different nations and cultures with each other - nations and cultures which in the final analysis are only apparently in contradiction to each other.
