“...Virtuosity of the musicians and in particular of the pianist Baturay Yarkın, whose play is not without reminding of Azeri pianists like Shahin Novrasli or Isfar Sarabski.” Jacques Pauper, co-founder of couleurs jazz radio at zebrajazz

“Yarkın has a strong sense of melody, the ability to tell melodies simply and the ability to depict allegorically. This gives him a competent expressive power.”
Feridun Ertaşkan, founder of cazkolik, editor and writer

“Dream Again, catches you right away, from the first notes. Nice instrumentation, nice development and layering of the opening melodic statement. Great mood set throughout the song and piano themes sounds so dreamy and blissful. Very warm vocals, perfect fitting voice for this beautiful composition.”

“It feels really good to listen to Yarkın's touch in Dream Again, similar to the perfect fluency in Chick Corea/Chucho Valdes' playing and the sweet-hard tempo that elevates the melody.” Feridun Ertaşkan, founder of cazkolik, editor and writer
