The project "Sax kolo" presented the updated concept of the concert and publication series "Jazz-Kolo", which during the period of its existence has already had time to come into notice of the numerous audience. 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. However, the division into the best vs. the worst in this case can be only conditional and subjective – as the musicians represented works of absolutely different styles, from avant-garde to pop-jazz. Thus, the concert does not create any hierarchy, but rather offers an opportunity to find out the modern state of the art. And it is pleasant to note that the Ukrainian jazz scene can really offer music for any taste – and all of that sounds professional, confident, the listener only has to choose something to his / her liking. There is a choice.
Finally – a remark for those who visited the concert represented here in person. Although that evening stuck in memory of the whole audience because of certain confusions with the sound, in the recording these problems were successfully overcome, therefore you will be able to listen to all of the compositions in normal quality.
