Nataliya Lebedeva Ensemble. Quests. (feat. HP Salentin). /digi-pack/.
The new album by Natalia Lebedeva is a collective fantasy based on Chopin's works. The title "Quests" seems to hint at that it is rather not music of formal reverence, but a grateful game, question, search, laying of some new tracks and associations, tying new knots to remember. Hence, apparently, the rather unexpected in such a context sounds of poetry by Adam Mickiewicz – the figure that is, ultimately, no less significant (by the way, special thanks should be addressed to the palette of Laura Marti's vocal colors). The game was a success, one wants to listen to the album again and again – this is music of soft and delicate ramifications, non-contradictory contrasts, in its melancholy integrity similar to the silk of wide water in the silence of the dawn. Under the silk, multilayer mosaics of depths are perceived – and yet one cannot (does not wish to?) with a careless motion destroy the delicate balance, the fascination half a step to... This is beauty. Seemingly so simple and open, and this openness transforms into – mystery beyond words.
Laura Marti - vocal & poetry reciting
Viktor Pavelko - tenor & soprano sax
Natalia Lebedeva - arrangements, piano & keyboards
Igor Zakus - bass
Roman Yakovchuk - drums & percussion
Special guest: Hans Peter Salentin - trumpet, flugelhorn (2,4,5,7)

Cherkasy Jazz Quintet. Kontrapunkt. /digi-pack/. (Counterpoint)


Some of the authors that you'll encounter here are Morgan, McCartney, Bogolyubov, etc. – hence, that's a crossing of quite diverse time, country, and style lines. What that sounds like: as if the boundaries in space and time do not exist. Well, as it should be, actually. Coherence, skills of the quintet are at the highest level, and the new album is another confirmation of that.

Acoustic Quartet. Anticipation of New. /digi-pack/.


(this disc is an exclusive thing, and you cannot buy it. But you can get it as a present). Acoustic Quartet knows for sure that your path lasts exactly as long as you follow it. The number of turns is countless and only depends on your willingness to experiment. So at every turn – there is that very New...

Cherkasy Jazz Quintet. Return Music to Me. /digi-pack/.


The wonderful team Cherkasy Jazz Quintet by Serhiy Krasheninnikov celebrate their 10th anniversary in 2014. "Return Music To Me" is their seventh album already. The pieces recorded on this disc are, to put it mildly, unusual for a classical (by composition) jazz quintet, which is also an adept of the traditional hard bop...

Cherkasy Jazz Quintet. Jazz album with a prologue and epilogue. /re-edition, digi-pack/.


Jazz music, by definition being in a permanent creative quest, at the same time possesses surprising tolerance and is not afraid to look back... The music represented on this disc suggests that we rewind the tape of history for about 50 (and more) years back and plunge in the times when (wonder!) music instruments were still the key transmitters and sources of music.
Domestic price: 107.46UAH, International price: $15.92USD

Cherkasy Jazz Quintet. Remembering the Beatles. (re-edition). /digi-pack/.


Thus – thirteen LP albums by "The Beatles", one song from each. Something is closer to the original, something is farther: jazz is music that is free in its creative search and discoveries. Let us hope that this new CD by Cherkasy Jazz Quintet will turn to be a nice present both for fans of "The Beatles", and for fans of jazz...

Cherkasy Jazz Quintet. Confirmation. (re-edition). /digi-pack/.

Jazz Atmosphere, Dmitry "Bobeen" Alexandrov. Time After Break.


On the one hand, there seems no be nothing superfluous – even Aleksandrov, oddly enough, has not added too much pepper, even though he knows how to do it at the level of "excellent". And on the other – the organism works so smoothly, without failures, that the entire album literary flies at one breath...

Oleh Pashkovsky Quartet. +1. /digi-pack/.


...a true galaxy of musicians with modern thinking, unique vision of the musical space, and an excellent technique. Actually, already the debut album by Oleh Pashkovsky is a good example of how interesting, thoughtful, versatile the young improvisational music in Ukraine can be.

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...

Kiev Acoustic Trio. Moment.


Three musicians with huge experience recorded something transparent, subtle, and humanly simple – something that majority of young ones could not do. Just because there is simplicity which can be saturated, to which you come through hundreds of melodies and thousands of hours of rehearsals and performances.
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Vladimir Zinkovsky. Music First!


Volodymyr obviously enjoys this music – and does prevent his colleagues from doing the same) Quietly, nicely, confidently and – in the best sense of it – modestly. One can say this far not about any album: this time the musicians came together exactly for the sake of the music-as-the-state..
Domestic price: 80.46UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Rodion Ivanov. Electric variete.


There is space for everything here – atmospheric electronics, funk, the decorations in the form of two very different but also very expressive female vocals, to say nothing about the wonderful instrumental improvisations, an so on, and so forth.. until it becomes clear that the style limits are only needed to be overcome.
Domestic price: 114.21UAH, International price: $16.92USD

Nataliya Lebedeva Trio. Medium Cool live.


All the musicians appear in some new, specific and delicate light - and, I believe, this is a merit of Lebedeva as a composer. It is not by chance that Igor Zakus at the beginning of the evening referred to her music as very female one... Expressive – and soft, caring; elegant, distinct – and, at the same time, very emotional, open to intercourse; sometimes anxious – and very lyrical...

Jazz Impression, Alexey Krupsky, Anatoly Alexanian. Marfa. /digi-pack/


This kind of 3D, really composer's vision in jazz is encountered far not every day – and certainly comes into notice. It thrills and inspires some, with some it causes protest – but, as a rule, does not leave indifferent. Because when a feeling stands behind music supported by a developed thought...

Sergiy Davydov. Ukrainian Jazz Round Dances.


It either laughs or winks wilily – or sounds with such pensive tenderness, such forgivene... There is the beauty of every minute, which does not depend on the past or the future, which is – just now, and for this reason – always.
Domestic price: 147.96UAH, International price: $21.92USD

Acoustic Quartet. USB-blues.


"USB-Blues" resembles meditation – mobile. And it is possible to really hear how the idea appears, the first step – and then it literally grows in front of your eyes, develops, blossoms. There appears the effect of presence – and, which is nice, repeated listening does not make it wash out. That is, there is a space of attention – both mutual, among the musicians, and individual attention..
Domestic price: 222.21UAH, International price: $32.92USD

Alexey Bogolyubov. My "Cool & Crazy" world. /digi-pack/


From the first seconds, the album tunes one into attentive perception – even if you have never before heard Olexiy Bogolyubov. And if you have already had the chance, it will a priori be interesting to listen. Internal harmony, balance both of each play and of the disc as a whole – pleasantly delights. "My "Cool & Crazy" World" is a beautiful, diversified work, in which Bogolyubov demonstrated himself well both as the performer, and as the composer.
Domestic price: 114.21UAH, International price: $16.92USD

Nataliya Lebedeva Trio. Medium Cool.


Strange: although you could hardly characterize the album as quiet, unemotional – it leaves the feeling of tranquility...the heart and mind sound equal, do not argue, search for harmonious interlacing. And discover it – not only in sounds, in the whole atmosphere.
Domestic price: 154.71UAH, International price: $22.92USD

Nataliya Lebedeva Trio. Paints.


...music of such a serious level will find its grateful audience anywhere. If only they were able to listen and hear the fragile, cool and fresh, pungent, spring jazz. From the outside, it is somewhat ascetic, but actually – very sated, meaningful – live.
Domestic price: 107.46UAH, International price: $15.92USD

Laura Marti, Kristina Marti. Try to feel. (feat. HP Salentin). /digi-pack/.


It is a living flow that erodes and connects the banks – the universal language that remembers all dialects, but does not preserve them, gives them space for movement and development. Actually, this is what the entire album is about: the form is changeable, try and feel what does not depend on it – and therefore has the power to change it. And may the power be good.
Domestic price: 201.96UAH, International price: $29.92USD

Anya Tchaykovska, Acoustic Quartet. 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..
Domestic price: 0.00UAH, International price: $0.00USD

Kristina Marti, Laura Marti. Chanapar. /digi-pack/.


Sincere, masterful, colorful, delicious – fragrant ethno-jazz and abundance of subtle patterns, and none of the project participants stay in the shade. But the singing... So bright, sharp, emotional – sometimes tender and transparent, cozy – sometimes so deep that when listening you forget to breathe...

Igor Zakus, Z-Band. Ukrainian bass song. /digi-pack/


In his time, Igor Zakus became virtually the first jazz bass-player in Ukraine who released a solo album. Thus, the new album by Igor Zakus is what nobody seems to have done before in the Ukrainian jazz. And the word "song" in the title "Ukrainian Bass Song" appears far not by chance. Generally speaking, this is also an album of duets
Domestic price: 114.21UAH, International price: $16.92USD

Yuliya Roma. Tsvit. /digi-pack/. (Blossom)


If we speak about Yulia Roma – it is not just a new vocal album. This is truly an author work. What is the sparkle here, you might ask? And it is that this is a Ukrainian-language jazz album – and exactly Yulia Roma is the author of not only the music but also all the lyrics (a booklet with them, by the way, is added to the release). Such an exclusive thing.
Domestic price: 120.96UAH, International price: $17.92USD

Rosava, LoTus. LoTus feat. Rosava.


As a rule the idea of heroic nature has never even crossed the minds of the heroic figures. Moreover they can even get frightened if one alludes to this. But still they continue doing their work. Just because it is their... It’s no use in objecting to the fact that real musicians, the same as the real music, begin with an ability to listen carefully. To listen and to hear.
Domestic price: 107.46UAH, International price: $15.92USD

Yelena Popova. Voices From My Soul. /digi-pack/


Yelena Popova strikes with universality, it is difficult to define where she succeeds better – in energetic "hits" or in lyric, delicate ballads. Here she sounds with a bright flash, promises an explosion – and does not cheat, grants powerful emotional splashes. And in a minute – softly, almost in whisper lulls in cozy intonations, causes quiet tremor with her ability to breathe transparently in thick autumn color...
Domestic price: 120.96UAH, International price: $17.92USD

Olga Voichenko. (feat. A. Schilkloper). Charivni Sny. (Magic Dreams)


...the basis of the album is vocal improvisations. And so diversified that every next play surprises you without fail. On the whole, it seems, the music balances somewhere on the verge of hard-bop, besides, it contains some transparent ethnic elements.
Domestic price: 107.46UAH, International price: $15.92USD

Olga Voichenko, Sergey Kapeliushok. Tenderly.


It is not enough to have a valuable, high-quality instrument – it is desirable to master it as well. Olga – has mastered it so that we can only be grateful to her. Especially when she sings in lowercase – then, the thought flashes that in Ukraine, presumably, there is simply nobody to compare with her...
Domestic price: 147.96UAH, International price: $21.92USD

Yuliya Roma. Heartbeats.


...Yulia Roma's singing sounds just as that minute of silence before the sunrise, as if blue eyes of a child three-month old, attentively and easily... Music of this voice transforms jazz into soft crystal, it is so masterful that it does not attract any superfluous attention – but you cannot actually stop listening, noticing, feeling – and the sun rises, and the heart elate...
