Motion Trio. Pictures from the Street.
(item from the "Rare Discs" section)
It seems to me that none who has at least once heard performance by Motion Trio and the more so none who has seen it will ever forget, mix it up with anybody. And the thing is not only original composition although you will hardly find among performers of jazz, art rock, folk fusion another trio what would consist exceptionally of accordions. Maybe, not that important is even the ability of these people to obtain with their instruments sounds more characteristic of guitars, the rhythm and spirit sections although this also impresses, sure. (It is enough to say that at their performances they are able to imitate even DJ music. However, it is revealed to its full already in later works). But the main thing, in my opinion, is that it is a real kaleidoscope of sincere emotions, impressions and delicate technical mastery only adds sharpness, brightness to it. It is not occasionally that this album is called "Pictures from the Street" in streets of a city, an attentive observer will never feel bored, virtually always there happen some live films, you only need to watch. If I am not mistaken, the album did become one of results of experience obtained during active performing under open skies. By the way, after its first release it was acknowledged as the best jazz album of the year in Poland. And one more note. Considering the specifics of our shop, this disc should not have appeared here it would seem so. But. In this case, we deal not just with a licensed copy of the original. This is the second edition made in Ukraine and especially for Ukrainians. That is why, actually, there are some differences: the play "Asfalt Tango" is removed two others are added instead, namely "Libertyn" and "You Dance". That is why, I think, the disc should interest not only Ukrainian music fans. This is an original gift to all admirers of Motion Trio, of whom there are already quite a bit in the world, and more and more of them appear.

Volodymyr Solyanyk, Mykola Oorzhak, Serhiy Khmelyov. Tanets i zvuk orla. /digi-pack/. (The Dance and Sounds of an Eagle)


..the album is not free improvisation for keyboards, but a space of co-creation in the ethno-jazz spirit. Space so deep, versatile there is enough magic of rhythms, and magic of silence, not to mention the fact that Oorzhak's throat singing inevitably adds very characteristic colors.
Domestic price: 195.33UAH, International price: $17.92USD

Anton Pyvovarov. Lemkian Suite. /digi-pack/.


..the fact that a Kyivite turns to Lemkian songs is unexpected and interesting. The musicians are very caution about the authentic material, they do not shutter the songs architecture. Instead, they delicately unwrap and decorate the main lines, having arrived in their arrangements at a certain common denominator for the generally diverse plays..

Marinita. Marinita. /digi-pack/.


Marinita is, in fact, Maryna Zakharova, who was the heart of the very original project Anno Domini. So, Marinita is a certain development to the story, testing herself in a new, even more open format: with the opportunity to collaborate without any special linking to a certain composition. The debut album under the new name...

ShockolaD, Ewa Novel. Nova. /digi-pack/.


..the circle is closed for them to reach something new: from the initial composition, only Anastasia Litvinyuk and Ihor Hnydyn have stayed, the rest of the lines are within responsibility of our Polish brethren led by Ewa Novel. And somehow quite expectedly the band's music has regained its distinct ethno-jazz colors, stepping aside from the previous lounge rails.
Domestic price: 162.63UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Insight, Nino Katamadze. Yellow.


..And there ever is love for the music no matter where musicians roam following the quest while working on new material. Yellow. Life-giving. Hot and humid. Warm. Dry and mirage-like. Joyful. Acute. Crumbling. Spicy. Soft. Diverse and alive... Listen.

Acoustic Quartet, Anya Tchaykovska. Krosna. /premium, digi-pack/. (Hoop)


(this disc is an exclusive thing, and you cannot buy it. But you can get it as a present). Living water that's how this music is heard. And it catches you and carries on the waves, and even over them, and it does not let you freeze and at the same time it fascinates you as if you stand in the middle of the wind and shine. Total magic, what can I say..

ShockolaD. Schedryi vechir z dobrym jazzom. /re-edition, mini-pack/. (Christmas Eve Wiz Good Jazz)


In its previous album "Pokosy", ShockolaD stepped away from jazz for an almost safe distance the key definition of the work would be "ethno-lounge". Well, and this time the group seems to have decided to remix all familiar ingredients both the ethno, and jazz, and acoustic lounge and, sure, to season it with a few new colors.

Olga Voichenko, Sergey Kapeliushok, Pavlo Shepeta. Spivanochky moi. Ukrainian folk songs. /eco-pack/. (My Songs)


The recording is luxurious perhaps, one could hardy put it in other words. This is something that so far we have not had: a vocal and instrumental album of Ukrainian folk songs at the intersection of jazz, chamber and symphonic, variety art music (such as, for example, songs by Frank Sinatra or Astrud Gilberto)...
Domestic price: 199.25UAH, International price: $18.28USD

Er.J.Orchestra. The Unicorn. (remastered). /digi-pack/.


This is the third album in the official discography of Er.J.Orchestra. And I really hope that it will be not a stop, not completion of the trilogy, but one of the many pearls on the thread. Such music simply must be incarnated, sound, fill the space at least because honest beauty, dignity, authenticity live in it...
Domestic price: 242.85UAH, International price: $22.28USD

Insight, Nino Katamadze. 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.
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Yuliya Roma. Raduysya. Ukrainian carols. /digi-pack/. (Rejoice)


To enrich them with modern colors without destroying the subtle paths of the light joy inherent in Christmas carols and shchedrivkas which is not an easy task. Since it requires great attention and tolerance. Finally, it just requires love for this music, for the roots and love that is creative. And it seems they have succeeded.
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

DomRa. Kupalska.


Victor Solomin is virtually the only jazz domra-player in Ukraine, therefore the both of his ethno-jazz projects "SolominBand" and "DomRa" have here no immediate analogues just by definition. Besides, "DomRa" can boast two key instruments at once: those are the domra and the vocal, and it is they that provide the "ethnic component" of the sounding here.
Domestic price: 119.03UAH, International price: $10.92USD

Er.J.Orchestra. The Unicorn Live. (2CD).


...each of them separately does not really have almost anything too sophisticated, to say nothing about the superfluous but these transparent lines interlace so pointedly and charmingly, that an indescribably rich matter of light appears. In the case of Er.J.Orchestra, it is not only about concert improvisations the issue is discovery and creation of old-new worlds, no less.
Domestic price: 253.75UAH, International price: $23.28USD

Insight, Nino Katamadze. Blue.


...the fact that creation of the concert concept and recording of the album took place in Kyiv, and the sound direction, mixing and mastering of the album was also done by Kyivites these are no doubt pleasant and significant nuances. To be related to appearance of such music this is a noble business. Nino Katamadze is just truly special, and that is the essence...

Igor Zakus, Z-Band. Kolomyyky. /digi-pack/. (Kolomyikas)


"Kolomyikas" is a good album with bright pieces that are able to capture the audience as it is, even without associations with the material it derives from. In the end, there was no "weak link" in the team of the albums creators. That is, probably, the reason why, without regard to the intense structure, there is within the music fabric freedom, which makes it possible to breathe deeply.
Domestic price: 166.55UAH, International price: $15.28USD

Fusion Orchestra. Apocrypha. /digi-pack/


Yes, in this music you can still hear well the hot southern sun but still, on the foreground, you have original cool elegance. And one can feel based on which law the space of the disc is designed: rather not to satiate, but to extend this space as much as possible but softly.
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

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.
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Er.J.Orchestra. On the Hill Again. (special CD+DVD edition). /digi-pack/


Sure, Er. J. Orchestra is one of the most interesting Ukrainian projects in the domain of ethno-fusion today. And not only Ukrainian ones. Actually, this music is so organically intertwined into the world sound fabric it is impossible to limit it with any borders, geographic or stylistic, etc.
Domestic price: 598.63UAH, International price: $54.92USD

Er.J.Orchestra. Gabrielius. /digi-pack/


Only natural things can be like that the sea in any weather, a streamlet somewhere in the mountains, the eyes of a horse or a deer, a green greeting of an old willow, a smile of an infant
Domestic price: 1012.83UAH, International price: $92.92USD

Fusion Orchestra. Octagon. /digi-pack/


It is great pleasure to listen to music that has let in, changed, satiated and breathed out so many bright impressions, lives, root... When music is wide open everybody can drink from it, see one's face in it, find in its one's real.

Igor Zavadsky. 9th Planet. (2CD).


In the "9th Planet" the chronological period to which the musical pieces included in the CD refer was expanded now ranging from the XVI cent. to the XXI cent., which is a half of a millennium! The repertoires genre variety was also widened: Igor played rock and worlds pop hits of the XX and XXI century for the first time.
Domestic price: 260.73UAH, International price: $23.92USD

Igor Zavadsky. Ave Love. (2CD).


"Ave Love" is the 8 th music album by Igor Zavadsky. "Ave" (Latin: "angel's greeting") in some other languages, for example, in German, means both "hi" and "goodbye"... All recordings of the album "Ave Love" were made at Zavadsky's concerts in the period between January 21, 2008 and January 21, 2009.
Domestic price: 260.73UAH, International price: $23.92USD

Strelchenko-Band. My Day.


..it seems that "My Day" is the first Ukrainian jazz album "spin" round the button accordion... Spin perfectly Kostyantyn Strelchenko has proved to be a true master. This refers, sure, to the purely technical virtuosity as well and it does impress. But one would like to separately emphasize another mastery, the internal one...
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Igor Zavadsky. Mysterium. (2CD).


"Mystery" is the sixth album and the continued music performance anthology by Igor Zavadsky, where capacities of the accordion in various genres are demonstrated as extensively as possible: classics, jazz, avant-garde, modern adaptations of folk and popular music.
Domestic price: 260.73UAH, International price: $23.92USD

Igor Zavadsky. Festival. (2CD).


"Festival" is the fifth consecutive album by Igor Zavadsky, it consists of two discs. In addition to solo performances, a duo with the accordion, and the performance accompanied by a chamber orchestra, for the first time on the disc Igor Zavadsky used the sound of his instrument as part of a large symphonic orchestra and choir.
Domestic price: 260.73UAH, International price: $23.92USD

Igor Zavadsky. Danielf. Concert recording.


You understand by yourselves that the energy of a studio will never come up with the energy of a large and alive audience. In this album both new compositions and new adaptations of old compositions from previous albums are presented.
Domestic price: 184.43UAH, International price: $16.92USD

Igor Zavadsky. Minor. From Bach to Piazzolla.


At the beginning of this album, toccata and fugue D-minor of Iohann Bach sound. As for me, this is quite a solemn beginning, which at once sets you into quiet and thoughtful listening. At that, it is minor, the time for thinking and observing.
Domestic price: 184.43UAH, International price: $16.92USD

Igor Zavadsky. Angel Trills.


In this album a unique recording is presented - solo performance of an accordion accompanied by a chamber orchestra in concerts of Vivaldi and the duet with clavecin in compositions of Bach and Tartini. It is exactly Tartini, with whom both the title of the album and its idea content are connected the matter concerns the struggle between good and evil.
