Z-Band, Igor Zakus. Kolomyyky. /digi-pack/. (Kolomyikas)
You could already hear the concert variant of the new album by Igor Zakus before it was released in 2007 titled "Kolomyikas Live 2007" in "Jazz Kolo" series, and then we also had a conversation with you on that event. However, it is difficult to avoid adding a few more words now, that the studio version is released the album really deserves that. One listens to it and it slowly strikes him/her how carefully, tolerantly all the arrangements were made (for this special gratitude to Igor Zakus). However, for a person who did not somehow specially listen to Ukrainian folk music it will be rather difficult to identify the themes, and sometimes even impossible. But. If such person, not knowing Ukrainian music, knows jazz this will be quite enough to get truly penetrated with the colors. By the way, about the colors: the insertions played by Myron Bloschychak on folk winds instruments do sound outstanding. Unobtrusively but that adds very bright colors to the disc. Moreover. "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. And the only thing that one cannot but regrets is that this album has been realized only now, not a couple of years ago, when hunger for such music was just incredible. However, it has still not been quenched completely...

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.

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..

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...

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.

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

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...

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.

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.
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: 260.73UAH, International price: $23.92USD

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...

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

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.
