Celebrated Istanbul, Turkey-based jazz drummer Ferit Odman, a former Fulbright Scholarship winner, offered up a tribute to Tadd Dameron on his acclaimed third effort as a leader, 2015's all analog recorded Dameronia With Strings. The remarkably sensitive played session by Odman, Terell Stafford, Peter Washington and Danny Grissett, both as a band and ace soloists, is bolstered here by a well-balanced, swinging string sextet and beautiful arrangements by David O'Rourke. It gives us the chance to remember Dameron's influential approach to jazz as an orchestrator too and just like Philly Joe Jones did with his Dameronia project, Odman takes us on a beautifully nuanced journey.

"This is an album of elegant, melodic tunes filled with great beauty that will make you feel good from the first note of "On a Misty Night" to the second side ender, after which you will wish there was more. Anchored by Odman's smooth, subtle drumming the album also swings dynamically with rhythmic propulsion." - Michael Fremer, Analog Planet (10/11 Music, 10/11 Sound)

"The fervid affection drummer/band leader Ferit Odman reveals for the late composer Tadd Dameron is infectious and absolutely mesmerizing on his latest album, Dameronia With Strings. Backed by a tremendously gifted group of musicians, Odman revives an indelible collection of Dameron's work, fueling new life into them with stellar musicianship and breathtaking energy. There is not a single wasted moment, and each member of Odman's ensemble is given the opportunity to shine like stars." - Stacey Zering, No Depression
