Er.J.Orchestra. The best of lives: volume One.

Reviews (2)
Er.J.Orchestra. The best of lives: volume One.
The main thing that I would like to attract your attention to is the fact that this disc is not just the first compiling of the best live-records by Er.J.Orchestra. Moreover, it is also a collection of rarities – because the greater part of the pieces represented here have not been released neither in the studio nor in the concert versions till now. Well, and enough has already been said about the quality of whatever Er.J.Orchestra creates. This project can be definitely considered today unique for Ukraine, and no doubt that on the world scene it is one of the most interesting projects as well. We already noted before: Er.J.Orchestra creates not music – not only music – but an integral, saturated, harmonious world. Probably, that is the reason why this disc sounds, actually, not as a collection but as a proper balanced album – although recordings from three different concerts that took place in 2002, 2004 and 2007 are represented here. However, should this be surprising? In the end, all of these compositions are live parts of that integral, inspired world, the door to which Er.J.Orchestra constantly opens slightly with all of its work. So, the passage is open – and you are invited...

..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.

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.

Alexey Kogan. ..Just 50. 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...

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.
