Bass Kolo. /digi-pack/


This series sets the goal of creating a sort of a reference book of Ukrainian jazz musicians – grouping them by spheres of professionalization. Actually, the first disc of the new series is focused on the bass – both the bass guitar and the contrabass. At that, this time these are already studio, not concert recordings.

Bass kolo live. (2CD). /digi-pack/


..this evening interesting and even to some extent unexpected "specialized" combinations popped up unexpectedly – as, for example, the bass guitar plus contrabass, the acoustic bass plus the 8-string one, and so on, to say nothing about the last performance of the concert – a piece performed by all bass musicians involved.

V Jazze tol'ko devushky – 3. (Girls in Jazz)


With such music, it is easy to start one’s day, it is easy to go through it, easy to meet evenings and midnights. Nevertheless, whatever you might do, it is characteristic of female singing to harmonize the space – and here, on the disc, this property is revealed very brightly and convincingly. Ladies, be proud!

Jamala. For Every Heart: Live at Arena Concert Plaza. (CD+DVD). /digi-pack/.


The concert performance – it is different, and not only due to presence of a new song. The sound, nuances of arrangements, team of musicians – but, above all – the energy. And this is the case when, even while just listening to the recording, you experience a kind of happening – not least due to Jamala's affection for gospel.

Er.J.Orchestra. The Unicorn Live. (2CD).


...each of them separately does not really have almost anything too sophisticated, to say nothing about the superfluous – but these transparent lines interlace so pointedly and charmingly, that an indescribably rich matter of light appears. In the case of Er.J.Orchestra, it is not only about concert improvisations – the issue is discovery and creation of old-new worlds, no less.

InterJazz. Live Recording from Ukraine. Volume 2.


...when a concert comes to an end, music does not disappear, its vibrations just pass to other frequencies, into other forms. And each of those who have heard it – and among the audience there are a lot of musicians – becomes its follower and continuer.

Kyiv saxophone quartet. Swing cocktail. Live in Concert. /digi-pack/.


"Swing Cocktail" is a present for all those who love the emotions of "live" recordings and, respectively, concert features of performance of evergreens. Moreover, this time the purely saxophone composition has been expanded – on the album, you will have a chance to hear the clarinet, piano, bass, and drums. They do not sound in every piece – in this case, these are rather spices.

Alexey Kogan. ..Just 50.


...one of the most interesting jazz compilations released in Ukraine. Here, it is just impossible to expressly favor any compositions forgetting about the rest: too expressive, interesting, deep, and the main thing – diversified pieces sound on the disc. In the end, one could just look at the names, listen to the fragment...

Nataliya Lebedeva Ensemble. Medium Cool live.


All the musicians appear in some new, specific and delicate light - and, I believe, this is a merit of Lebedeva as a composer. It is not by chance that Igor Zakus at the beginning of the evening referred to her music as very female one... Expressive – and soft, caring; elegant, distinct – and, at the same time, very emotional, open to intercourse; sometimes anxious – and very lyrical...

Myroslav Levytsky. Session in Banff. Rollston Hall (live). /digi-pack/.


Myroslav Levytsky, as known, is one of the brothers who founded the jazz group "Braty Bluzu", which is significant for Ukraine. Today we offer to you to deeper, more attentively estimate Myroslav both as a composer, and as a pianist. Because, first, he just deserves that, and secondly – because what if not a solo album creates the best opportunity for this?

Sax Kings. Classics & Jazz. Live in concert. /digi-pack/.


The album is a collection of concert recordings – and here, you will find not only jazz evergreens performed by the saxophone quartet, which would be quite natural. As evident from the title – "Classics & Jazz", half of the album is composed of classical pieces – Bach, Purcell, Bizet – and this is, admittedly, very specific pleasure.

Volodymyr Solyanyk, Mykola Oorzhak, Serhiy Khmelyov. Tanets i zvuk orla. /digi-pack/. (The Dance and Sounds of an Eagle)


..the album is not free improvisation for keyboards, but – a space of co-creation in the ethno-jazz spirit. Space so deep, versatile – there is enough magic of rhythms, and magic of silence, not to mention the fact that Oorzhak's throat singing  inevitably adds very characteristic colors.

Dmitry "Bobeen" Alexandrov, Mark Soskin, Andrew Arnautov, Alex Fantaev. Skhid-Side meets Mark Soskin. (live).


Everything coincides on that spring evening – the mood, energy, mastery. And – the internal freedom of people who came together to once again create a common language... And we could describe the swift and lyrical Aleksandrov, the artistic Fantaev, thoughtful and easy-going Arnautov, light and deep at the same time Soskin, but music lies – in different thing...

Skhid-Side, Tanok Na Maydani Kongo. Jazzy. Live.


...the songs, which are well-known to us, are performed in a jazz manner, and people say that Skhid-Side ("East-Side") is in fact one of the best jazz bands of Ukraine... Especially because in this particular case it is not only jazz, but also TNMKongo - this mixture turns out to be strikingly successful...

Cherkasy Jazz Quintet. We like funky-jazz, and You?.. (re-edition). /digi-pack/.


In fact, this is already the third release of the first album by Cherkasy Jazz Quintet. "Speaking about jazz means wasting the time when one could listen to this wonderful music. The maximum that can be done – is raising a glass and proposing a toast to health of our Cherkasy musicians, to these surprising, talented and enthusiastic people..."

Cherkasy Jazz Quintet. Confirmation. (re-edition). /digi-pack/.


"...In our employees, we appreciate Creativity and the ability of Teamwork, of hearing and supporting each other. In a democratic society we crave for Freedom and dream of living in Joy. Lord, but I have just described JAZZ! In music and in life!.."

Cherkasy Jazz Quintet. The Best Of. /digi-pack/.


The focus of Cherkasy JQ from the beginning and till now has been hard-bop, the music of the 1950-60's. Well, and this collection, in fact, allows, albeit brief and selective, an overview of almost the entire path of the project – here you will find tracks from each of the previous seven albums.

Cherkasy Jazz Quintet. Greatest Hits. /digi-pack/.


..there is definitely enough material, and if there is demand, there is no reason to deny the pleasure to yourself or to the public. The compilation principle is familiar: here one finds pieces from all numbered albums by the quintet. By the way – including the latest disk, "Counterpoint", released at the end of 2016.

Off-Quar-Tet, ShockolaD. Jazz:Kolo:Bez. live. (2CD). /digi-pack/


..two concerts took place on that evening in actual fact – and those performances were so different that almost no temptation even arises to compare them with each other. But another thing is always the main one: whether the musicians succeed in revealing themselves in music – and, thus, revealing the audience with the music. And here, presumably, there will be no objections: all of that – happened!
