Bass kolo live. (2CD). /digi-pack/
This concert became, probably, the most striking one in the second season of the project Jazz-Kolo. Clear thing, the contrabass and bass guitar are the instruments, whose specific sounding charms millions of people all over the world. And not only fans of jazz even though it is in this music that, perhaps, their depth and richness are revealed most fully. But the point is that the mini festival Bass Kolo took place in an experimental way. While during previous concerts, different compositions just changed each other successively on the stage, 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 (plus drums). No doubt, this sort of the project's format looks surprisingly successful. First, such original, "jam" atmosphere creates a space of more direct communication with the audience not only allows enjoying interesting music but also truly intrigues with probable surprises, therefore it thrills considerably deeper. Well, and second, in such improvised combinations universal expressiveness of the instrument opens up to its full and some new aspects of musicians' mastery show up brightly. Thus, I strongly recommend it especially since there just were no such releases in Ukraine before.

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

Our best drummers are so different from each other and create such different music that it just makes one happy. And this diversity, it seems, in some paradoxical way results in that the main characters of this concert virtually do not compete with each other everybody does something own, special indeed.

Drum Kolo. (2CD). /digi-pack/

Another volume of the audio reference book by the "Jazz Kolo" project is, as you see, focused on masters of drumkit playing. It is nice to see that this time there again appears so much material that the compilers did not manage to squeeze everything into one disc. It is nice to see that there is enough space both for "veterans" of the Ukrainian jazz, and for the absolutely young generation..

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

With such music, it is easy to start ones 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!

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.

Guitar kolo live. /digi-pack/

It happened so that I did not attend this concert and the very first two plays from the disc made me feel sorry about that. Jazz-fusion in various displays, for every participant has his own vision of this style is really an interesting thing, especially when played well. And with that everybody coped, you would not even dare to say who on that evening sounded more poignantly.
