“Leading From Behind The Kit There’s an immeasurable gulf between the stage and the studio that many musicians simply can’t navigate. Turkish drummer Ferit Odman bridges that divide effortlessly on Nommo (Equinox 104-3; 48:55 * * * ½ ), a studio recording that channels enough live-band energy that the absence of post-solo applause comes almost as a shock. It doesn't hurt that Odman has assembled a cast of dependable veterans for the occasion; a debut record could do worse than to feature trumpeter Brian Lynch, altoist Vincent Herring and bassist Peter Washington (the line up is completed by Odman's countryman Burak Bedikyan on piano). The leader keeps things surprising on this set of lesser-known hardbop tunes by the likes of Sonny Stitt, Jymie Merritt and Tadd Dameron. Witness the chattering, birdsong cymbals gilding the opening moments of LarryWillis' ''To Wisdom the Prize," or the steel-driving tandem he forms with Washington. Ordering info: equinox-music.com ”
