Mustafa Özkent started his career as a musician in 1960 with his youngsters band "Teenagers", located in Ankara. It was called so, as no member was older than 19. Later on, he formed his own band, the "Mustafa Özkent Orkestrasi" and cut some singles and this LP. The LP "Elif" seems to be a solo work of Özkent, as only his name is on the cover.
Özkent was a demanded studio musician, too. For example he participated at the Özel Türkbas belly dance album "Alla-Turca - The Turkish Way With Özel". (El-Ay Records 2982; 1975). He is also known as a composer and arranger and still cuts albums. His latest LP "Dijital gitar" was released in 2005."
"Gençlik Ile Elele" album is an odd combination of A-Go-Go, funk, psychedelica, loose improvisation without in advance too melodically structured ideas, based upon an Anatolian folk inspired crossover style. Very "western", and at the same time exotic. A great album.
