Lush Life. Cafe Au Lait / Coffee with Milk. /digi-pack/.

Lush Life. Cafe Au Lait / Coffee with Milk. /digi-pack/.
Something very interesting has happened: the album "Coffee with Milk" by the group Lush Life and the album "Blossom" by Yulia Roma. These two works were released virtually simultaneously Ц and it seems that the both can be considered, even though it might sound too loud, a new say in the Ukrainian jazz. If we speak about Lush Life Ц this is virtually the only group in Ukraine today that performs music in the jazz-manouche style. And already absolutely sure Ц this is the author of the first Ukrainian album with such music. The debut is convincing, and more than that Ц just beautiful. Cool. And there is nothing strange in it, largely speaking: the project organizer, Sergey Ovsyanikov, is well-known due to his diversity and live interest to very different styles in guitar music directions. Listen to his previous works Ц both his own, and in other projects Ц he is, indisputably, a master. But he still studies, discovers something new Ц and this is, possibly, the defining feature. And his partners in Lush Life appear highly deserved. Listen how greatly all of them do NOT produce superfluous motions, sounds, inappropriate gestures. There is no blank space in their music Ц and every pause is filled with Ц true Ц music Ц silence... However, as this is "gipsy swing", the silence here is disguised, and in the foreground Ц there are bright rhythms, the atmosphere of a little cabaret and the almond (or, maybe, still milk-and-coffee?) taste of a temporary but cozy refuge. And it is not important now what happens there, outside, because here and now Ц there is wonderful music and the light, delicate voice of Diana Ovsyannykova. Who, by the way, sings several songs on this album Ц in Ukrainian..

Kuku Shanel. Polubelaya-poluchernaya. (2CD). /digi-pack/. (Semi-White/Semi-Black)

This is stylish music, and not only due to the nice pastiches. Everything is just done simply Ц in the good sense, when the output sounds so easy and smiling that you never think about the previous hard work.

Dakh Daughters. If. /digi-pack/.

..a studio album is a different story, it offers an opportunity to hear, not to see: music balancing on the brink of theater. Due to the art of intonation, which sometimes reaches its extreme and takes a step further Ц but also due to the art of silence, which only rarely acts as a pause, taking a breath, but mostly it keeps producing supplementary senses.
Domestic price: 202.16UAH, International price: $21.28USD

Retroskop. Vesnyany tvist. /digi-pack/. (Spring Twist)

Love to simple beauty Ц that is, probably, what in due time conditioned emergence of the "Retroskop" band. And it should be noted that their liking for the music of the 1950s-60s was noticeable not only in performance of "classics of the genre"...
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Jamala. All Or Nothing. /digi-pack/.

..It feels like listening to two albums simultaneously, one of which contains a colorful, complex mixture of styles, from soul and disco to electro-pop, with a bright admixture of classical training and jazz thinking. And the second one Ц blues, in all of its beautiful simplicity...

Oleh Skrypka. Zhorzhyna. /vinyl 180g HQ Audiophile LP/. (Dahlia)

The core of the album is represented by music compositions by Bohdan Wesolowski performed by Oleh Skrypka and "Zabava" jazz band. The composer and songwriter Wesolowski lived in Lviv in the 1930s-1940s, and his charming music enjoyed great popularity in Ukraine. German pressing, 180-gram vinyl.

Jamala. For Every Heart: Live at Arena Concert Plaza. (CD+DVD). /digi-pack/.

The concert performance Ц it is different, and not only due to presence of a new song. The sound, nuances of arrangements, team of musicians Ц but, above all Ц the energy. And this is the case when, even while just listening to the recording, you experience a kind of happening Ц not least due to Jamala's affection for gospel.
Domestic price: 221.16UAH, International price: $23.28USD

Jamala. For Every Heart. /digi-pack/

Jamala Ц and the debut album illustrates this very nicely Ц creates light music in the best Western tradition. And not just coolly Ц at a high quality level. Her love for soul, funk, jazz, burlesque and even classical music Ц it's all here, in this music so many things are mixed that you cannot guess everything at once...

Oleh Skrypka. Zhorzhyna. /digi-pack/. (Dahlia)

"I consider that the "retro" style, in which the album "Dahlia" is performed, is elegant Ц Oleh Skrypka says. Ц Moreover, jazz, tango, foxtrot, swing are generally considered European and overseas genres, and with this project I want to demonstrate that our country as well has its own rich, unique and high quality music history."

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

In fact, this is a dialog Ц amazing in its simultaneous richness of content and transparency. Not least Ц due to the skill of respecting pauses.. And if one takes into account titles of the plays Ц 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 Ц light fog, hints, mid-tones, mid-shades.. Heat and cool interweave here rather whimsically Ц 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.
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

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.
Domestic price: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

SV Savana. Two Ways.

That's right: it is a fusion of diverse, multi-style guitar music and spicy rhythmic patterns Ц 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.
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Oleh Yarema. Prysutnist'. (Presence)

Oleh Yarema has managed to develop a very lyrical, soft, transparent and fresh picture Ц 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 Ц and fans of beautiful, emotionally saturated melodies and subtle patterns.

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 Ц add to the sounding the brightest and deepest colors, and not only solo..

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

Virtuosity of Olexander Lyubchenko really strikes Ц 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 Ц distinctly personal...
Domestic price: 116.66UAH, International price: $12.28USD

SV acoustic. Waitin' For.

this music sounds timely Ц 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...

Alexey Krupsky, Alexey Wagner. April Sky. /digi-pack/

The idea of the recording arose quite spontaneously, unexpectedly for the musicians themselves Ц however, the album sounds regular, balanced, sometimes even a bit cool. And at the same time Ц warm, transparent, delicate, soft. Nothing strange Ц for the April sky is so changeable...

Likhoshva-Ovsianikov quartet. Swing Brothers.

Thus, this time two guitarists at once will stand in the center of the project. And Ц in the tandem they sound very convincingly. The both musicians lead an equal dialogue Ц and that is really a talk, live communication, in which one can clearly hear both attentiveness and respect to the interlocutor.
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Mykhaylo Kovalchuk. Miko.

He is in the very heart of Flamenco.
