İmer Demirer is a trumpet-player of such outstanding creativity and originality that the remark made by singer Randy Esen (during an interview conducted by Tolga Bedir) while describing how she had chosen him to play on her latest album is entirely justified: “İmer…” she said, “Man, I mean, what can I say… he was the only choice.”

On the subject of jam sessions, in my blog on one in February this year that involved İmer Demirer, I said the following: ‘It is precisely this lack of restraint that can give improvised music, at its best, a straight-from-the-heart quality that is extremely difficult to replicate in a scripted performance.’
