The Young Jazz + 23, the third album of the Young Jazz + project, which was launched by the Istanbul Jazz Festival in 2021 and features young musicians making music in jazz, funk, R&B, neo-soul, electronic music, hip-hop or cross-genre music, will be released on Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer, YouTube Music, Fizy and Muud on 21 November 2023. The album features 6 ensembles consisting of young musicians under the age of 30, each with their original works. With the Young Jazz+ project, talented and promising new musicians are given the opportunity to step into the music industry and to make their voices heard in the world.

The ensembles in the Young Jazz+ 23 album, which was produced by the festival, worked together with experienced and skilled musicians. Volkan Öktem, Korhan Futacı, Okan Kaya, Önder Focan, Ayşe Tütüncü and Selen Gülün shared their musical experiences with the young artists during the recording process of their tracks as producers. With the contribution of the musicians accompanying the ensembles during the recordings at Hayyam Studios, a free and dynamic album that balances the daring dynamism of youth with the wisdom of experience has emerged, which makes the album unique in our country in this sense.

Produced by the Istanbul Jazz Festival, organised by İKSV with the sponsorship of Garanti BBVA and the support of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism of the Republic of Turkey, the Young Jazz+ 23 album is published with the support of İKSV Young Artist Fund and Mehmet Uluğ Fund and in collaboration with Sony Music.
