Beauty Band. Don't Forget...

Beauty Band. Don't Forget...
It is always nice to introduce on the web site something exclusive Ц well, and this time the nicety is even a double one. First, as of the moment of its creation in 2000 this was Ц and, it seems, still is Ц the only female a capella jazz quintet in Ukraine (it is interesting that Oksana Ryabokon became the organizer of the Beauty Band Ц being a former participant of the a capella ensemble Jazz-Expromt, on the basis of which two more famous teams appeared in their time: ManSound and JazzEx). Secondly, the album was released in 2002. Honestly speaking, we no longer even hoped to see it in our catalogue. Currently, such a capella Ukrainian CDs as "Don't Forget..." or, say, "Interlacing" are a real great rarity. Moreover, if you keep track of the modern op-scene, it will be interesting for you to hear in jazz surroundings the voice of Susanna Dzhamaladinova Ц since 2009 better known as Jamala...

Speaking about the content, let us be brief: this is unusual enough. Sometimes Ц quite an unexpected expression. One feels the strength, potency Ц but to some extent latent, not completely polished yet, and this is piquant in its own way. Sure, as of the moment of creating the recording, the team was very young Ц therefore, it does not appear perfect. But, in all events, it is really interesting to listen to the album Ц not in the least due to the perceptible sincerity, honesty of performance.. By the way, there is a hope that a new album of Beauty Band will be released in 2010 Ц we are looking forward..

Pikkardiyska Tertsia. Lety... /digi-pack/. (Fly...)

..It's amazing how the art of careful and caring interpretation makes it possible to combine so different authors under one cover, but Ц Pikkardiyska Tertsiya is really among those cases where the words about music as a universal language do not seem superfluous.

ManSound. Voyage.

ManSound offers walking in familiar places, but glancing at them through different eyes Ц and feeling anew the beauty of our world's singing. For the sake of this trip, the group has recorded one of its best albums Ц that is for sure. Therefore, no need to renounce the offer Ц let's go!

Jazz-Choral (A. Gebel). Perepletinn'a. (Interlacing)

It has been repeatedly tested Ц any morning started with this music unnoticeably but certainly becomes a holiday. Not loudly. Not a holiday you find in the calendar. A live holiday Ц it is when your face shines with a smile, when eyes shine with the warmth inside. Well, you know that. No doubt, they know that as well Ц those who composed and released "Interlacing".

ManSound. In the Name of Life... (in memory of Vladimir Mikhnovetsky)

Volodymyr Mihnovetsky. The creator and guardian of the group, masterful and inspired singer, composer, arranger, manager Ц each of participants of the sextet, probably, will confirm that without this person ManSound could just never have appeared...

Pikkardiyska Tertsia. Sad anhelСsСkykh pisenС. (A Garden of Angelic Songs)

For the first time this album saw the light of the day as long ago as in 1997 Ц and it is even difficult to imagine how many people have been expecting for its second release. They had to expect for exactly 10 years Ц however, it was worth that. Pikkardijska Tertsia is that very rare case when a collective does not have in their discography a single weak, uninteresting album.

Pikkardiyska Tertsia. Anthology. Volume 1.

...their singing enchants you again and again. And when they are performing "The garden of angelic songs", you almost believe that the songs are performed not by usual people. They themselves are not angels, of course, (though Ц who knows?), but angels perhaps join in their song...
