Vinyl Envy is very proud to announce another All Ages show in-store featuring
Ilhan Saferali (Vancouver / Victoria, BC)
Ilhan Saferali is starting young at getting his name out on the jazz scene. Ilhan, playing trumpet and piano, has accomplished a lot for himself as a young musician. Ilhan has played with Grammy award-winning musicians such as Chucho Valdes and Kamasi Washington, and has worked with the David Suzuki Foundation for their ECOmusicology project. Ilhan was recently interviewed about his career and his music on CBC/Radio-Canada. Ilhan’s playing ability is very versatile; playing Jazz, Rock, Funk and Latin music. Ilhan's piano style takes from classic piano players such as Bill Evans and Oscar Peterson and is heavily influenced by modern jazz players such as Brad Mehldau.
Ilhan now composes complex modern jazz arrangements and plays theatres and halls alike. His sound is very mature and his soloing is undoubtedly complex for his age. Ilhan’s peers look up to him as an inspiration and his teachers look at him as the future of Vancouver and global jazz scene.
Ilhan's quartet will be performing two unique sets with his quartet on both Rhodes and Trumpet playing originals and incredible renditions of classics by Freddie Hubbard, Miles Davis and more~
