While remembering Mehmet Uluğ, freedom becomes the first thing that comes to jazz trumpeter İmer Demirer’s mind. He always remembers with admiration how Uluğ invited everyone around him to freedom, curiosity and creativity. Imer Demirer, who will take the stage with his new project İ.M.C. Trio at the “Mehmet Uluğ Night” held by Akbank Jazz Festival every year, is coming to share his music and feelings with the audience. Demirer's musical career that started at the Istanbul State Conservatory in 1976 livened up after graduation, he met jazz musicians such as Cem Aksel, Ilkin Deniz, Can Ayer and started to work with them.
