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. It looks probable that nobody except Sergiy Ovsianikov is engaged in jazz manouche in Ukraine – and Sergiy, to add to that, does that deliciously indeed. I would also like to mention separately the composition performed by Vitaly Makukin, due to whom tapping could be heard at that mini-festival – and it sounded bright. And at the same time – Olexander Pavlov, who contributed into the general drive – transparent, soft lyricism with elements, so to say, of ecm-like aesthetics. The rest of the concert was made up by jazz-fusion – in various displays, for every participant has his own vision of this style. Honestly speaking, I personally feel a bit sorry that our guitarists concentrated their searches exclusively round it – for one would wish, sure, to see as extensive palette as possible. However, first, one cannot possibly reproach for that, because each of us just chooses what appeals more to his / her heart. Well, and secondly, whatever we might say, jazz-fusion 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 – the young Tomasyan, or the experienced Lishohva and Shabaltas. Everyone had his own moments. To say nothing about those musicians who "framed" the guitarists – in a few episodes they sound so cool and juicy that you even forget to which instrument this concert was devoted)

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..

Soft Notes. Jazz and new age from Ukraine.

Switch off the TV set and the phone, close... no, open windows wide and let the morning into the house, or the evening, or whether there is – and listen. It seems that this music will match any time of the year, any mood and state having made it more transparent than it used to be.

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

With such music, it is easy to start one’s 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!

Sax kolo live. /digi-pack/

In contrast to the previous season, when each concert of the series was a performance of some concrete collective, in the new season the concerts are organized round some concrete instrument. Accordingly, saxophonists were involved into this concert – seven from among the best ones.

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

..the quality and volume of the material represented inspired organizers for a rather decisive step: this concert of the project has become the first one released in the two-disc format – because, according to Igor Zakus, it was just impossible to give up any of the plays represented here for the sake of squeezing into the format of one disc.

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

..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.

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.
