Olga Voichenko, Sergey Kapeliushok, Pavlo Shepeta. Spivanochky moi. Ukrainian folk songs. /eco-pack/. (My Songs)
The recording is luxurious perhaps, one could hardy put it in other words. This is something that so far we have not had: a vocal and instrumental album of Ukrainian folk songs at the intersection of jazz, chamber and symphonic, variety art music (such as, for example, songs by Frank Sinatra or Astrud Gilberto). Everything is spot on: "freshness" of the selected songs, exquisite, rich arrangements by Pavlo Shepeta, careful sound direction by Max Gladetsky, filigree brevity of the musicians and, of course, singing by Olga Voychenko. Her voice seems to have absorbed all colors a mom's gentle glance, transparent mist of a girl's sorrow, spring laughter of refreshed water, and the transparent height of the August sky, calm fatigue in the evening. Absorbed and returned fully, and filled to the brim with feelings, experience of living beauty...

And one more thing. I believe, it will not be possible to avoid comparison anyway too many various echoes have intersected here so let me note: the closest to this album in the sound palette and elegance of arrangements are, in my opinion, "Two Colors" by Kvitka Cisyk and "Oh, Spring, Spring..." by Mlada (by the way, arrangements for it were also created by Pavlo Shepeta). Definitely, we should mention works by Yulia Roma, ShockolaD band, and also, oddly enough, in the way of sounding this album sometimes reminds recordings by Er.J.Orchestra. But. Such a synthetic work that would organically combine directions that are so diverse, in fact, with jazz so far just did not exist. Now, fortunately, it exists and I hope that it will be continued...

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.
Domestic price: 195.33UAH, International price: $17.92USD

Anton Pyvovarov. Lemkian Suite. /digi-pack/.


..the fact that a Kyivite turns to Lemkian songs is unexpected and interesting. The musicians are very caution about the authentic material, they do not shutter the songs architecture. Instead, they delicately unwrap and decorate the main lines, having arrived in their arrangements at a certain common denominator for the generally diverse plays..
Domestic price: 195.33UAH, International price: $17.92USD

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...

ShockolaD, Ewa Novel. Nova. /digi-pack/.


..the circle is closed for them to reach something new: from the initial composition, only Anastasia Litvinyuk and Ihor Hnydyn have stayed, the rest of the lines are within responsibility of our Polish brethren led by Ewa Novel. And somehow quite expectedly the band's music has regained its distinct ethno-jazz colors, stepping aside from the previous lounge rails.
Domestic price: 162.63UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Insight, Nino Katamadze. 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.
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

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.
Domestic price: 195.33UAH, International price: $17.92USD

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...
Domestic price: 242.85UAH, International price: $22.28USD

Insight, Nino Katamadze. 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.
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

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.
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

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.
Domestic price: 119.03UAH, International price: $10.92USD

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: 253.75UAH, International price: $23.28USD

Insight, Nino Katamadze. 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.
Domestic price: 166.55UAH, International price: $15.28USD

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: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

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: 195.33UAH, 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.
Domestic price: 358.83UAH, International price: $32.92USD

Er.J.Orchestra. On the Hill Again. (special CD+DVD edition). /digi-pack/


Sure, Er. J. Orchestra is one of the most interesting Ukrainian projects in the domain of ethno-fusion today. And not only Ukrainian ones. Actually, this music is so organically intertwined into the world sound fabric it is impossible to limit it with any borders, geographic or stylistic, etc.
Domestic price: 598.63UAH, International price: $54.92USD

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: 1012.83UAH, 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: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Laura Marti. Shine. /digi-pack/.


..on the one hand the fantasy of jazz musicians. And on the other, all these laces of motions and patterns are thought over and embodied so confidently and easily that this ease allows one to not focus too much, but skip and let it go to the back of ones mind right away. Instead, one listens to the main melodic line, the beauty and the flexible power of the voice..
Domestic price: 297.35UAH, International price: $27.28USD

Laura Marti, Kristina Marti. Try to feel. (feat. HP Salentin). /digi-pack/.


It is a living flow that erodes and connects the banks the universal language that remembers all dialects, but does not preserve them, gives them space for movement and development. Actually, this is what the entire album is about: the form is changeable, try and feel what does not depend on it and therefore has the power to change it. And may the power be good.
Domestic price: 221.05UAH, International price: $20.28USD

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..
Domestic price: 0.00UAH, International price: $0.00USD

Igor Zakus, Z-Band. Ukrainian bass song. /digi-pack/


In his time, Igor Zakus became virtually the first jazz bass-player in Ukraine who released a solo album. Thus, the new album by Igor Zakus is what nobody seems to have done before in the Ukrainian jazz. And the word "song" in the title "Ukrainian Bass Song" appears far not by chance. Generally speaking, this is also an album of duets
Domestic price: 166.55UAH, International price: $15.28USD

Yuliya Roma. Tsvit. /digi-pack/. (Blossom)


If we speak about Yulia Roma it is not just a new vocal album. This is truly an author work. What is the sparkle here, you might ask? And it is that this is a Ukrainian-language jazz album and exactly Yulia Roma is the author of not only the music but also all the lyrics (a booklet with them, by the way, is added to the release). Such an exclusive thing.
Domestic price: 249.83UAH, International price: $22.92USD

LoTus, Rosava. LoTus feat. Rosava.


As a rule the idea of heroic nature has never even crossed the minds of the heroic figures. Moreover they can even get frightened if one alludes to this. But still they continue doing their work. Just because it is their... Its no use in objecting to the fact that real musicians, the same as the real music, begin with an ability to listen carefully. To listen and to hear.
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Yelena Popova. Voices From My Soul. /digi-pack/


Yelena Popova strikes with universality, it is difficult to define where she succeeds better in energetic "hits" or in lyric, delicate ballads. Here she sounds with a bright flash, promises an explosion and does not cheat, grants powerful emotional splashes. And in a minute softly, almost in whisper lulls in cozy intonations, causes quiet tremor with her ability to breathe transparently in thick autumn color...
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Olga Voichenko, Sergey Kapeliushok. Tenderly.


It is not enough to have a valuable, high-quality instrument it is desirable to master it as well. Olga has mastered it so that we can only be grateful to her. Especially when she sings in lowercase then, the thought flashes that in Ukraine, presumably, there is simply nobody to compare with her...
Domestic price: 173.53UAH, International price: $15.92USD

Yuliya Roma. Heartbeats.


...Yulia Roma's singing sounds just as that minute of silence before the sunrise, as if blue eyes of a child three-month old, attentively and easily... Music of this voice transforms jazz into soft crystal, it is so masterful that it does not attract any superfluous attention but you cannot actually stop listening, noticing, feeling and the sun rises, and the heart elate...
