The Atlantic Sound...Celebrating Arif Mardin tonight in Ahmet's House

Music...all beautiful, all valued. But a Sound! When a band defines a unique sound...think Yes, or CSN...it distinguishes them among their peers. But an entire Label? That was Atlantic...with the arrival in 1963 of Arif Mardin, a Turkish born composer, arranger and musician...well, Atlantic had the combined power of Ahmet, Jerry Wexler, Tom Dowd and "The Greatest Ears in Town",Arif Mardin. Come journey with us as his son Joe shares a conversation with Tony tonight in Ahmet's House. Music provided exclusively by this wonderful documentary soundtrack.
