Keyboard instruments, a guitar and percussion. Everything is simple, nothing is unnecessary. Stop, I haven’t mentioned the main thing. The voice. Maryna Zakharova, a girl with brown eyes and velvet tembre of voice. In her photo you can see that some Eastern notes are dissolved in her blood. So, it is not a surprise that these notes appear in the manner of her singing. Though it sounds unusual when set to Ukrainian texts – still, it is interesting and nice. So then, it is very simple, that is, nothing is unnecessary, everything is velvet, interesting and beautiful. It is a good soft jazz, light and fancy, but not too variegated to hurt your eyes. I am sure that it will be pleasant to listen to this jazz even for those who do not listen to any jazz at all, as there is no cold intellectual philosophising in it. On the contrary, there is transparent and light beauty present here. Besides, personally for me it is rather pleasant to hear that Ukrainian texts sound at this disc, and at that the texts written not by somebody, and not folk ones, but personal. If I am not mistaken, it is not so often that such things happen with Ukrainian jazz.– to my great pity. In other words, I advise you to listen – it’s a warm music.
