Second Breath. Save the Blues.
(item from the "Rare Discs" section)
An exclusive edition and it is, probably, said too quietly. It looks like that even externally really, an interesting package. But that is not the thing, still. First strange enough, but this disc, is, evidently, virtually the only Ukrainian album consisting exclusively of blueses (in quite a wide understanding of this word). At least, among official releases. The majority of compositions, naturally, originate from the United States but, what is nice, there are also four blues pieces by Ukrainian authors. Moreover, the emphasis was all the same not on archaic blues and, I should confess, it was nice to hear here, among the rest, a message from Jim Morrison. Thus, that is one side. Well, and the second let us look closely who recorded this album, for this is another display of the declared exclusiveness. Second Breath is a Kyiv group that has been playing blues for 40 (!) years already. It is quite possible that this is the oldest active blues band not only in Kyiv, but also all through Ukraine. Or, maybe, through considerably wider territories who knows... And Second Breath not just plays quietly to itself the group is one of the best in the territory of the CIS. However, this is already quite a relative assessment, whatever you might say. At least, in view of the blues tree. Another thing is important here: your music either touches something live, or not. And that's all. Technical mastery, experience, better, worse these are simply words of those who listen. Second Breath plays.

Vuraj. Rajok. /digi-pack/.


Belarus bands famous here are specific in their artistic, nonlinear attitude to arrangements, self-irony and they are somehow particularly enlightened, I guess. When one listens to them sometimes it seems that they are singing the anthem of the Sun, facing the dark wall of the ancient forest. And Vuraj in this regard is no exception.

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.

Red Cardell. Narodzhennja. (Naitre) (Birth)


"Red Cardell" wished to create an album open for the whole world. As a result, French chanson was mixed with African rhythms, Ukrainian authentic singing with Oriental, Asian melodies, Celtic archaic with elements of trip- and hip-hop. And all this together laughs, dances, gets a bit sad, makes love...

Liapis Trubetskoy. Zolotye jajcy. (Golden eggs)


Their music is the mixture of everything that gets into your hands and is reinforced by a powerful and skilful spiritual section. You can find practically everything here, starting with grunge and ending with raggy, and all that is fully stuffed with Byelorussian outlook and sense of humour...

Zdob Si Zdub. 450 De Oi (450 Owes).


...when music is saturated with folklore motives so much, and at that not only with Moldavian ones, the language of performance becomes not so important in such a case you only listen to music. You listen to music, which does not have even a hint at pop-variety art, as it is a real folk-rock...

BUDU band. Vydykh Vdykh. (2CD). /premium, eco-pack/. (Exhale Inhale)


...And freedom, needed in treatment of the form and details. This is what this album is comprised of well, and a jolt of haphazardness, to spell out in words the somewhat absurd lyricism of the world capable of joyfully and sadly beautiful acts. Even if it doesn't (?) make sense. Exhale and inhale, mind and heart, because otherwise it does not work, it does not dance.

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..

Yuri Andrukhovych, Karbido. Absinthe. /super-pack/. (CD+DVD).


...a mysterious story of Stanislaus Perfecki a poet, a traveler, and a performer who embarks upon a journey from Lviv to the West, and ultimately emerges in Venice, the City of Ghosts. There, he experiences a series of incredible adventures and falls in love with Ada Cytryna, his interpretress. Being forced to part with his beloved woman and unable to fulfil his special top secret mission, Perfecki vanishes..

Konstantin Kolesnichenko. Hypnotized! /digi-pack/.


..there are things that "penetrate" even without special training and this album deserves attention no matter how well you're familiar with the blues. As it is played extremely deliciously with appropriate conciseness, but not dryness. Because it is played by young jazz musicians, hence "Hypnotized!" has incorporated features of both blues and jazz..

Nino Katamadze, Insight. 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.

Braty Bluzu. One Autumn Concert. (live). /digi-pack/.


First, "Braty Blusu" have long ago already and absolutely deservedly become a living legend of the Ukrainian jazz-rock. And, second and this is, probably, even more important the album is really good and interesting. Interesting, foremost, due to its ambiguousne...

Back Country. Reflection of Universe. /digi-pack/


I could say something about the reflection of the musical universe here, as several musical trends and styles got skilfully and gently entangled in this album. Still it seems to me that it would not be groundless to speak about the reflection of the Universe itself, as it is a musical stream, which is characterised by generality.

Enver Izmailov Trio. Minaret.


From ballads to dance, from folklore through art rock to meditation and jazz I would call this world fusion, as a lot of roots from the whole world have intertwined here. However, all the plays have their common root: the basis is creative re-consideration of music of Crimean Tatars and other Black Sea peoples.
