ShockolaD, Ewa Novel. Nova. /digi-pack/.
The first album by ShockolaD was created in close cooperation with Polish musicians, and during all the next years Poland has played a significant role in the group's journeys and not only geographical ones. And now, it seems, the circle is closed for them to reach something new: from the initial composition, only Anastasia Litvinyuk and Ihor Hnydyn have stayed (by the way, the later is the arranger of all the songs represented here), the rest of the lines are within responsibility of our Polish brethren led by Ewa Novel. The basis of the material is the Polish folklore although enough space was left for the Ukrainian one as well. And somehow quite expectedly the band's music has regained its distinct ethno-jazz colors, stepping aside from the previous lounge rails. Thus, at first glance, this retreat is most obvious in keyboard and percussion parts however, at concerts all the five musicians set it on fire. And while the album recording keeps prompting one to dance, the drive of live performance surpasses even that believe me, or better check it up by personally experiencing it, it's worth that. The updated ShockolaD is generally good, but Ihor Hnydyn in particular is sheer joy and pride, honestly.

Marinita. Marinita. /digi-pack/.


Marinita is, in fact, Maryna Zakharova, who was the heart of the very original project Anno Domini. So, Marinita is a certain development to the story, testing herself in a new, even more open format: with the opportunity to collaborate without any special linking to a certain composition. The debut album under the new name...

Nino Katamadze, Insight. Yellow.


..And there ever is love for the music no matter where musicians roam following the quest while working on new material. Yellow. Life-giving. Hot and humid. Warm. Dry and mirage-like. Joyful. Acute. Crumbling. Spicy. Soft. Diverse and alive... Listen.

Acoustic Quartet, Anya Tchaykovska. Krosna. /premium, digi-pack/. (Hoop)


(this disc is an exclusive thing, and you cannot buy it. But you can get it as a present). Living water that's how this music is heard. And it catches you and carries on the waves, and even over them, and it does not let you freeze and at the same time it fascinates you as if you stand in the middle of the wind and shine. Total magic, what can I say..

ShockolaD. Schedryi vechir z dobrym jazzom. /re-edition, mini-pack/. (Christmas Eve Wiz Good Jazz)


In its previous album "Pokosy", ShockolaD stepped away from jazz for an almost safe distance the key definition of the work would be "ethno-lounge". Well, and this time the group seems to have decided to remix all familiar ingredients both the ethno, and jazz, and acoustic lounge and, sure, to season it with a few new colors.

Laura Marti, Kristina Marti. Chanapar. /digi-pack/.


Sincere, masterful, colorful, delicious fragrant ethno-jazz and abundance of subtle patterns, and none of the project participants stay in the shade. But the singing... So bright, sharp, emotional sometimes tender and transparent, cozy sometimes so deep that when listening you forget to breathe...

Er.J.Orchestra. The Unicorn. (remastered). /digi-pack/.


This is the third album in the official discography of Er.J.Orchestra. And I really hope that it will be not a stop, not completion of the trilogy, but one of the many pearls on the thread. Such music simply must be incarnated, sound, fill the space at least because honest beauty, dignity, authenticity live in it...

Nino Katamadze, Insight. Green.


Very transparent, juicy, quiet and confident and yet full of irrepressible life this is what this work appears like. Stylistically, it continues the trend including the albums "Black" and "Red" the pure jazz-rock line, with no direct immersions into the lounge or symphonicity. But in a much softer, tender version.

Yuliya Roma. Raduysya. Ukrainian carols. /digi-pack/. (Rejoice)


To enrich them with modern colors without destroying the subtle paths of the light joy inherent in Christmas carols and shchedrivkas which is not an easy task. Since it requires great attention and tolerance. Finally, it just requires love for this music, for the roots and love that is creative. And it seems they have succeeded.

DomRa. Kupalska.


Victor Solomin is virtually the only jazz domra-player in Ukraine, therefore the both of his ethno-jazz projects "SolominBand" and "DomRa" have here no immediate analogues just by definition. Besides, "DomRa" can boast two key instruments at once: those are the domra and the vocal, and it is they that provide the "ethnic component" of the sounding here.

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.
Domestic price: 242.46UAH, International price: $35.92USD

Nino Katamadze, Insight. Blue.


...the fact that creation of the concert concept and recording of the album took place in Kyiv, and the sound direction, mixing and mastering of the album was also done by Kyivites these are no doubt pleasant and significant nuances. To be related to appearance of such music this is a noble business. Nino Katamadze is just truly special, and that is the essence...

Igor Zakus, Z-Band. Kolomyyky. /digi-pack/. (Kolomyikas)


"Kolomyikas" is a good album with bright pieces that are able to capture the audience as it is, even without associations with the material it derives from. In the end, there was no "weak link" in the team of the albums creators. That is, probably, the reason why, without regard to the intense structure, there is within the music fabric freedom, which makes it possible to breathe deeply.

Igor Khoma. Ukrainian jazz.


Even today not too much of such music is being created in Ukraine to say nothing about the middle of the last century.. Igor Khoma managed to involve really wonderful musicians into his band the rhythm sections, the winds, the strings and the keys in various plays pleasantly surprise. But still the most striking thing is the authentic Ukrainian spirit of the music represented here.
Domestic price: 87.21UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Fusion Orchestra. Apocrypha. /digi-pack/


Yes, in this music you can still hear well the hot southern sun but still, on the foreground, you have original cool elegance. And one can feel based on which law the space of the disc is designed: rather not to satiate, but to extend this space as much as possible but softly.
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Yuriy Kovtun. BraviBelli.


...the album at once creates elated, festive mood but in a surprising way. In the correct way. Because, although about a half of the compositions can hardly be called merry ones a smile is very expressly felt in them. Somewhere dim, somewhere transparent, somewhere dreamy, somewhere thoughtful but it is present in each piece, and it warms.
Domestic price: 120.96UAH, International price: $17.92USD

Motion Trio. Pictures from the Street.


It seems to me that none who has at least once heard performance by Motion Trio and the more so none who has seen it will ever forget, mix it up with anybody. And the thing is not only original composition although you will hardly find among performers of jazz, art rock, folk fusion another trio what would consist exceptionally of accordions.

Er.J.Orchestra. Gabrielius. /digi-pack/


Only natural things can be like that the sea in any weather, a streamlet somewhere in the mountains, the eyes of a horse or a deer, a green greeting of an old willow, a smile of an infant
Domestic price: 627.21UAH, International price: $92.92USD

Fusion Orchestra. Octagon. /digi-pack/


It is great pleasure to listen to music that has let in, changed, satiated and breathed out so many bright impressions, lives, root... When music is wide open everybody can drink from it, see one's face in it, find in its one's real.
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Jazz Impression, Anatoly Alexanian. Anatoly Alexanian & Jazz Impression. /digi-pack/


Not long ago I happened to be at their concert... I had the feeling that in addition to everything, it was for the sake of such sudden boons that it was worth listening to music, as well as to look for it, even when you did not know for sure what you were looking for.
