Video version of the concert project "Guitar kolo" (this recording contains more compositions than its audio variant).
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 Serhiy Ovsianikov is engaged in jazz manouche in Ukraine – and Serhiy, 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 Likhohva 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)
