. More then 800 people came out to Babylon and Nublu. Vocalist from Paris Laika started the nite at Babylon with a great band including Hamid Drake, Craig Harris, Robert Irving and Jeribou.
Their set was followed by a jam started off with Love Trio and we were joined by Craig Harris on trombone , Bilal on guitar, talented vocalist Bora Uzer , Can Cankaya on keyboards, actor Ugur Yucel sat in on percussion and some vocals. Alp Ersonmez played the bass since Jesse had to go back to NYC this same morning to play with Regina Carter. Kenny Wollesen, Arto Tuncboyaciyan , Dj Logic and me Ilhan on keys and sax. After playing at Babylon for awhile I sneaked off stage when Can came and sat in on keyboards, to Nublu , which is next door, and you can access it through a door in between the 2 clubs.
Here in the pics are Laika, Bora Uzer, Love trio, Kenny Wollesen and Baris K, the doormen at Nublu . Last pic is the after spot we ended up at every nite late nite having lentil soup !!!
