Elif Çağlar Türkiye'de cazın en önde gelen isimlerinden birisi, belki de en iyisi. 2 yıl önce onu canlı izleyebilme şansını yakalayabilen sınırlı sayıda insandan biri olduğum için seviniyorum. Çünkü müziği - bir kere de olsa- kulaklık takmadan duyulmalı. Queens College'taki lisanüstü eğitiminden sonra New York'ta birçok hatrı sayılır mekanda konserler verdiğini biliyoruz. 2015'te Aaron Parks, Harish Raghavan ve Eric Harland gibi önemli caz sanatçılarının katkılarıyla Misfit adlı albümünü piyasaya çıkardı ve bana göre Türkiye'nin en başarılı caz vokali olduğunu da kanıtlamış oldu. Kendisiyle bahsi geçen konserden sonra ufak bir süre sohbet etme şansımız da olmuştu, yeteneğinin ve zerafetinin yanında çok da alçakgönüllü birisi. Misfit'i dinlemek için müzik aplikasyonlarına gerek duymuyorum çünkü kendisinin halıhazırda adıma imzalamış olduğu albüm evimde güzel bir köşede duruyor. Bu da onu benim için daha da özel yapıyor. Sevdikleriniz yılbaşı ağacını süslerken, siz de onlara güzel bir şişe şarap açın ve bu albümü oynatın. 

Before we ever thought to fly
Before we ever knew the silence in the solitude of a cry

When the leaves decide not to fall
When the ones with bitter hearts decide not to grow
When the snow decides to leave no trace
When the devil decides to have just one face

When the rain decides to be dry
When the saint in us decides not just to try
When the earth decides to shake us

And sends us straight to heaven
We will return to who we were
Before it all, before the snow
Before the rain, before the vow
Before the pain, before we ever thought to fly
Before we ever knew the silence in the solitude of a cry

And sends us straight to heaven
We will return to who we were
Before it all

And sends us straight to heaven
We will return to who we were
Before it all, before it all
Please sends us straight to heaven
We will return to who we were
Before it all, before the snow
Before the rain, before the vow
Before the pain, before we ever thought to fly
Before we ever knew the silence in the solitude of a cry

When the leaves decide not to fall
When the ones with bitter hearts decide not to grow
When the snow decides to leave no trace
When the devil decides to have just one face

Sends us straight to heaven
Heaven, heaven, heaven...

Elif Çağlar is one of the most prominent names of jazz in Turkey, perhaps the best. I am delighted to be one of the few people who could catch a chance to watch her live 2 years ago. Because the music must be heard -at least for once- without wearing headphones. We know that after studying master degree at Queens College, she gave many concerts in New York. In 2015, she released an album named Misfit with the contribution of important jazz artists such as Aaron Parks, Harish Raghavan and Eric Harland. And she has already proven to me that she is the most successful jazz vocalist in the country. I had a chance to have a conversation with her for a little while after the concert, and she was very humble besides her talent and elegance. I do not need music apps to listen to Misfit because the album that she has signed for me is standing in a nice corner in my house. Which makes it even more special for me. While your loved ones decorate the Christmas tree, you can open them a nice bottle of wine and play this album.

Before we ever thought to fly
Before we ever knew the silence in the solitude of a cry

When the leaves decide not to fall
When the ones with bitter hearts decide not to grow
When the snow decides to leave no trace
When the devil decides to have just one face

When the rain decides to be dry
When the saint in us decides not just to try
When the earth decides to shake us

And sends us straight to heaven
We will return to who we were
Before it all, before the snow
Before the rain, before the vow
Before the pain, before we ever thought to fly
Before we ever knew the silence in the solitude of a cry

And sends us straight to heaven
We will return to who we were
Before it all

And sends us straight to heaven
We will return to who we were
Before it all, before it all
Please sends us straight to heaven
We will return to who we were
Before it all, before the snow
Before the rain, before the vow
Before the pain, before we ever thought to fly
Before we ever knew the silence in the solitude of a cry

When the leaves decide not to fall
When the ones with bitter hearts decide not to grow
When the snow decides to leave no trace
When the devil decides to have just one face

Sends us straight to heaven
Heaven, heaven, heaven...
