Awards:

2006-2008 Fulbright Scholarship
”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...” —Shaun Brady, Downbeat Magazine (Nov-2011)

”...This drummer assembled a thoughtful group of notables for sessions held in Brooklyn, NY, and then smartly allowed each of them to join the conversation. The result is a collaborative, almost communal, effort, as if Nommo was put together over a series of long talks at the kitchen table...” —Nick DeRiso, Somethin' Else

”..Nommo is, until the very end, an impeccable group effort...”

”...They (Odman & Washington) perform like two halves of the same heart, pulsing and contracting behind a series of brilliant conceptions by the soloists...” —Nick DeRiso, Somethin' Else
