In February 2002, Huseyin was invited by the British jazz musician Bill Ashton to work with the National Youth Jazz Orchestra.[1][2] By June 2005, he had released his first solo CD called "Something Old, Something new" which gained positive reviews. Digby Fairweather stated that it is "the best I've heard from a British singer and orchestra since Dame Cleo and Sir John Dankworth's Shakespeare and All That Jazz".[3][4] His second album was called "How Do You Keep the Music Playing". In April 2006, Huseyin toured with the American musician Buddy Greco; afterwards, Greco stated that "I was knocked out by Atila. He has the voice and the class to show the world what great music is all about".[1] In 2008, Greco invited Huseyin to tour the United Kingdom, the highlights of this included an appearance with the BBC Big Band at the 30th Edinburgh Jazz and Blues Festival.[1]
