Alexey Wagner, Alexey Krupsky. April Sky. /digi-pack/
Both Alexey Krupsky, and Alexey Wagner already have a considerable experience of collaboration with various jazz projects. But as a duet – it is their debut work, though they have been playing together starting from 2004. The duet is a Ukraine-Germany one, as the both musicians are Ukrainians, but they mainly live in Germany, therefore they have concerts, so to speak, on two fronts. Alexey Krupsky was a student of the prominent Ukrainian jazz musician and teacher – Volodymyr Molotkov (who, by the way, in 1978 became the author of the first jazz disc in Ukraine). Actually, the recording represented here appeared during the festival commemorating V. Molotkov – it took place in April, 2006. The idea of the recording arose quite spontaneously, unexpectedly for the musicians themselves – however, the album sounds regular, balanced, sometimes even a bit cool. And at the same time – warm, transparent, delicate, soft. Nothing strange – for the April sky is so changeable... There are graceful graphics, pastels, water-color hints, even voluminous but so light oil-paint, but what is for sure not included here – poster gouache. The album is devoted to the memory of V. Molotkov – therefore, naturally, two of his plays sound here, as well as an author play by Alexey Wagner. The rest are arrangement of pieces by such authors as Chick Corea, Keith Jarrett, Stevie Wonder, etc. High-quality, nice work – it not only brings quiet pleasure, but also gives reasons to hope for appearance of subsequent works.

Myroslav Levytsky, Rens Newland. Elegant Dualism. /digi-pack/.


In fact, this is a dialog – amazing in its simultaneous richness of content and transparency. Not least – due to the skill of respecting pauses.. And if one takes into account titles of the plays – then the stratifications and cross-sections of images and meanings may get even more interesting. That is, it is not just about an elegiac mood...

Konstantin Ionenko. Noema. /digi-pack/.


..these are anyway not flashes or explosions, but – light fog, hints, mid-tones, mid-shades.. Heat and cool interweave here rather whimsically – one only needs to make a little step aside to be inside, in the heart of the music, and for it to appear in one's heart.

Hryhoriy Lukyanenko. Pory roku. /digi-pack/. (Seasons)


...And once again one gets convinced that it is not by accident that the guitar remains one of the most popular instruments in the world. It is able to convey this palette of feelings and so brightly when in trained hands that words become simply redundant.

SV Savana. Two Ways.


That's right: it is a fusion of diverse, multi-style guitar music and spicy rhythmic patterns – all of that together sounds very emotional and surprisingly rich. Another proof of that in order to create interesting, live music one does not necessarily need to gather a bunch of people.

Oleh Yarema. Prysutnist'. (Presence)


Oleh Yarema has managed to develop a very lyrical, soft, transparent and fresh picture – it is softly lit from within, and one feels cozy with the light... I think that "Presence" has all chances to please both those who appreciate just a good performance technique – and fans of beautiful, emotionally saturated melodies and subtle patterns.

Sergiy Ovsianikov. Narechena. (Bride)


Ovsianikov has realized his long-time dream – to play in the composition of a trio and exclusively his own pieces. The value of this disc, above all, lies in the musicians' approach to the material: the album was recorded within just one shift in the studio, in order to preserve the freshness of feelings arising during a joint performance. Maybe, that is the reason why this album is so easy to listen to..

Jean-Pierre Froehly. Away from the crowd. The music of Attila Zoller.


Probably, you know music by Zoller. The key zest of this album, however, is that the main emphasis is put, strangely enough, not quite on the guitar: together with drums and the contrabass it creates the basic canvas, and the already mentioned contrabass together with the flute and, from time to time, the piano – add to the sounding the brightest and deepest colors, and not only solo..

Olexander Lyubchenko, Mykhaylo Krymov. Fourth Key. Live in Dnipropetrovsk. /digi-pack/


Virtuosity of Olexander Lyubchenko really strikes – one can only regret that the disc does not contain a video recording. But what strikes even more is how voluminous, open to all sides of the wind his music is. It seems to have absorbed true colors from various corners of the world remaining at the same time – distinctly personal...

SV acoustic. Waitin' For.


this music sounds timely – although, possibly, the point is that it simply does not belong to any definite time. And for this reason, having no rigid anchors, it feels comfortable anywhere, in any surroundings. In the end, one can hear in it echoes of the rock heat of the 1960s, and passion of flamenco, and blues and jazz greetings, and the school of the classic guitar, and country...

Likhoshva-Ovsianikov quartet. Swing Brothers.


Thus, this time two guitarists at once will stand in the center of the project. And – in the tandem they sound very convincingly. The both musicians lead an equal dialogue – and that is really a talk, live communication, in which one can clearly hear both attentiveness and respect to the interlocutor.

Mykhaylo Kovalchuk. Miko.


He is in the very heart of Flamenco.
