Skryabin, Smack Band. Skryabinos Muchachos.
Smack Band – it is its participants that act here as Skryabinos Muchachos – is one of the oldest jazz collectives of Ukraine specializing in performance of Latin America music. The group was founded as long ago as in the beginning of 1990 – however, during this time its composition has undergone changes. You should know that in 1993 it was Smack Band that released the first jazz compact disc in Ukraine, the album "Smack" – and got positive response for it in Europe and North America. But let us go back to these days. At some party where Kuzma was the anchor, the guys from the band helped him to fill in a pause by improvising a samba based on the theme of "Sleep Alone" – and it appeared good. So good that it resulted in real cooperation – and here you see a full-value album of cover versions for Skryabin's song created by musicians of Smack Band. An interesting album, unexpected. At least – for all those who have got used to that special sound and mood that is usually offered by Skryabin. Here it is quite different. So different that it is sometimes hard to believe – but thus it becomes only more interesting. Possibly, you will need to listen to the disc more than once in order to get used a bit to the new look at the familiar songs – but it is worth doing. Because Smack Band knows its business well, indeed. And because Kuzma was not reluctant to sing these songs anew especially for the project. And just because it is – a new point of view.

Smack Band. Coisa Ligeira. /digi-pack/.

The content of the new album by Smack Band completely corresponds to its name – it is really light and soft. That is what one needs on a sunny day to tune in unison with it (the day). That is what one needs in the event of a period of rain – so that it were lighter on the heart..

Caipirinha. Caipirinha.

Very lively music, which almost imperceptibly but inexorably draws you into the circle of its fluctuations – even if you have never paid much attention to the Brazilian music.. At the same time – everything is so smooth and intelligent as it is possible when it comes to cool tunes, Latin American rhythms, and the energy of a warm holiday.

Aby MC. Ocetni standarty. (Acid Standards)

They strikingly harmoniously combine clear sorrow, sadness – with joy as clear. And that is why there is inside always a place left for light. Usually, children have this ability – and it does not matter how old they are...

Pelican Jazz Quartet. From Spain to Brasil. /re-edition, digi-pack/.

...the disc by a completely different jazz project by Serhiy Krasheninnikov – Pelican Jazz Quartet. I hope you will enjoy this music – spontaneous, slightly peppery, far from finished grinding, unpredictable, as is Life itself. Indeed, Jazz is free music of free people! Free both in life, and in their self-expression...

Cherkasy Jazz Quintet. Latin Soul. /digi-pack/.

The wonderful and creative team of Cherkasy Jazz Quintet by Sergey Krasheninnikov addresses some well- (and not) known tunes of "Latinos jazz" and plays them in their usual hard-bop manner...

Victor Pavlik. (and friends). Rock.

..a whole bunch of musicians joined that, including Rock-H, Motor'rolla, Pan Pupets, Sashko Polozhynsky – and in this way a complete cover album of songs from the repertoire of 1992-2015 was formed. It turned out interesting – because the versions often sound quite unexpectedly, and because Pavlik personally contributed into the recording, so all together it is also an album of duets.

Skryabin. Balady. /digi-pack/. (Ballads)

Since the share of lyrical songs in the bulk of works by "Skryabin" is gradually but steadily increasing – the attempt to create a sort of a collection of such lyrical songs seems justified. And the collection has worked out well – the disc is just up to its physical rims filled with nice melodies and good lyrics of varying degrees of depth.

Boombox. Vse vklyucheno. /digi-pack/. (All Inclusive)

Well, here is finally the long-expected album by the new "Boombox" – new in the aspect of sounding. The trick is that this is material recorded in a rock manner. For this reason the work has the name "All Inclusive" – because everything is done here with the help of "live" instruments, and in particular – at participation of a real rhythm section.

Skryabin. Cherez chuzhi okuljary. Tribute. (Through other's glasses. Tribute)

...he is able to write real songs, that is not empty ones – it is not surprising that so many people have taken part in the given project. Thus, twenty talented, famous and not so much performers, twenty songs by "Srjabin" of different years. Twenty meetings with the clever and even rather elegant, but still punk.
Domestic price: 222.60UAH, International price: $15.90USD

Brem Stoker. Zbyrane. (Condensed)

Unlike condensed milk, this disc does not contain any surpluses of sugar. Rather, vice versa – the guys from Bram Stocker have once again demonstrated clearly who they are. First, they were named a punk-group, though merry. Now, emphasis has shifted a bit, therefore now Bram Stocker is considered though merry, but a punk-group.

Визріло кілька думок на тему..
Не так давно придбав собі цей диск в дарунок на власні іменини, про що анітрохи не жалкую. Для мене це не просто музичний альбом, знайомі композиції чи приклад вдалої співпраці талановитих людей. Дещо більше. Це маленька подорож у Світ Андрія Кузьми. Світ яскравий, іронічний, а головне щирий і без фальшу. Саме таким наш улюбленець запам'ятався мені - відкритим, веселим чоловіком, з гострим відчуттям справедливості, без якого не міг обходитись ні в творчості, ні в житті.
Можливо, саме це і є найбільшим талантом серед усіх інших.. Бути справжнім, бути Людиною.
Отже, мій вердикт - проект відбувся.
Відомі хіти Скрябіна органічно вплелись у латино-американські ритми, вкупі з якісним звукозаписом.
Рекомендую! ;-)

Чесно кажучи очікував значно більшоговід альбому. Загальна ідея цікава, і у випадку творчості Скрябіна така обобька пісень могла би бути просто неймовірно цікавою та небуденною. На жаль поза кількома піснями, решта альбому залишила мен байдужою. Таке враження, щзо переспів на лано-ам. спосіб обмежувалось мінімальними термінами - вибрали нову мелодію і просто - "в лоб" претягнули оригінальну скрябінську на новий мотив.. не прикладаючи ані особливих зусилль ані фантазії. Шкода!

Якщо порівняти дану збірку переспівів з "Альбомом" або "Триб'ютом", то "Мучачос" просто ховаються... обидва перших були присвячені роковинам творчості, а "Мучачос" - це щось на зразок 'в нас получилося по-іншому і ми то всьо записали'. Душі в цьому доробку фактично не відчувається, треки йдуть занадто одноманітно, відчувається недосконалість оволодіння "нашими" виконавцями "ненашого" стилю.
Хоча в кожного виконавця бувають такі моменти, коли є можливість випустити "мінорний" альбом, або не випустити нічого. 'Скрябін' вибрав перший варіант.

насправді, чекав цікавішого альбому, але всеодно порадувало, принаймі те, що всеж таки якісно, я просто ще не звик до такої музики, хоча кілька треків зачепило!;-)
