"One of the outstanding pianists and composers in Europe today...
At the cutting edge of the world music." - the late, great Ahmet Ertegun

Following Fahir Atakoğlu's latest CD "Live at Umbria Jazz" (Far & Here LLC), the 17th album in Fahir's vast catalogue of music, the Fahir Atakoğlu Trio will be performing at three legendary venues on the East Coast: The Velvet Note in Atlanta GA, the Deer head Inn in Delaware Water Gap PA and capping off the dates at Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola at Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City.

Over the years, Atakoğlu has worked to blend his own native music from Turkey with sounds from the wider world, incorporating Cuban rhythms, Middle Eastern melodies, and improvisation as perfected by American jazz artists. Fahir's three previous U.S. jazz CD releases have made it to #1 (three times) on the JazzWeek World Music Chart as well as charting high on the JazzWeek Jazz Chart. "Live at Umbria Jazz" charted in a high position on the JazzWeek Charts for 16 weeks! The Trio has performed at venues in the U.S. such as Blues Alley in D.C., Jazz Alley in Seattle and many other venues all over the country. Fahir has performed at Carnegie Hall twice - once with Sezen Aksu and another time with Sertab Erener both times selling out. In October of 2015, Fahir was honored to receive an award from Turk of America Magazine as one of the 50 most influential Turkish Americans.

Fahir Atakoğlu is an international award winning composer and pianist well known in the fields of jazz, large symphonic works and film music. His works have been performed in many music festivals in Europe and the United States to critical acclaim.

Fahir Atakoğlu's upcoming CD (currently in production), entitled "Interpretations" celebrates the collaborative spirit of musical artists from different countries around the world. The CD will consist of Mr. Atakoğlu's original compositions and will feature 6 internationally renowned vocalists, such as Buika from Spain, Luciana Souza from Brazil, Letizia Gambi from Italy and several others to be announced.
