Serhiy Zhadan, Kharkiv Klezmer Band, Studio theater "Arabesque". Radio shanson: visim istoriy pro Juru Zoyfera. /brochure+CD/. (Radio Chanson: Eight Stories of Jura Soyfer)
...if we could hear what we say probably, we would keep silent. But we do speak. And what is then left for our words but for the echo of our pace? What is then left for our eyes but for memory? And who are we then if not prophets? for we walk in a circle, that is why we as though know everything in advance. And only from time to time we step with our both feet in clear water of death only then we see clearly that circles spread, and we stay...
It somehow reminds radio plays of the times when TV was not yet so ubiquitous happy times, however but, at the same time, it elusively differs from them. To a great extent due to lyrics by one of bright modern Ukrainian poets and prose-writers, Serhiy Zhadan. Grotesque and phantasmagoria interlace with naturalness of so minor details that they resemble violent fantasy it is one side. And freshness, sharp piercing of thoughts and observations, some indescribable tenderness together with the ability to look right into the eyes of truth it is the other side. Tense-and-relaxed internal rhythm, which sometimes transforms into external rhythm rhymes. This is as if a charcoal drawing only meaningful details against the empty background. Add here two flows that are not less interesting. One is voices of actors of the Studio Theater "Arabesque". You do not feel any decorations, any actorship in them, everything is true. And this must be not easy. And the second music by Kharkiv Klezmer Band, which is considered one of the best Klezmer collectives of the world. It not frequently goes to the forefront. But, instead, fills dusks with all the riches of shades of wisdom somewhat sad in its smiles, which is inherent in this music.
...and even if we do not see each other, but only our reflections in the eyes of the interlocutor that's ok. When they are clear, we will see in the end circles spreading...

Gregory Nemirovsky. SonGs in the Key of Odd. /eco-pack/.


As the title promises, the album has turned out quite strange but in a good sense. This is the strangeness that can only be afforded by good,versatile musicians otherwise, originality may easily turn into farce, showing off. This did not happen here one virtually feels with one's skin in what a thin, delicate way all of that is compiled.

Dmitry "Bobeen" Alexandrov, Jazz Atmosphere. 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...

Sax Kings. Fever. /digi-pack/.


"Fever" is a studio work. So, on the one hand, there is no living "breathing of the audience", the proper concert experience. But on the other there is no room for concerns, everything is polished to shine (although, I must say, at concerts the quartet also sounds so smoothly that sometimes it seems almost unbelievable)...

Kyiv saxophone quartet. Swing cocktail. Live in Concert. /digi-pack/.


"Swing Cocktail" is a present for all those who love the emotions of "live" recordings and, respectively, concert features of performance of evergreens. Moreover, this time the purely saxophone composition has been expanded on the album, you will have a chance to hear the clarinet, piano, bass, and drums. They do not sound in every piece in this case, these are rather spices.
Domestic price: 85.14UAH, International price: $18.92USD

Sax Kings. Classics & Jazz. Live in concert. /digi-pack/.


The album is a collection of concert recordings and here, you will find not only jazz evergreens performed by the saxophone quartet, which would be quite natural. As evident from the title "Classics & Jazz", half of the album is composed of classical pieces Bach, Purcell, Bizet and this is, admittedly, very specific pleasure.

DOK. DVA. /digi-pack/.


"Brutal pop power" so they call it. But there is a great temptation to also add other words: post-rock plus acoustic acid jazz with trip hop education something like this, probably. However, all these names do not contradict each other because music like this as it is means going beyond the limits of specific style...

Gregory Nemirovsky. Mirages.


...the silent poetry of the atmospheric, almost supernatural winds appeared against the background of clear, transparent rhythms and sometimes fluctuating, changeable bass and key lines. This music seems to pull into some mystic circle, however it also tears, transforms it with sporadic emotional splashes, does not let it calm down melancholically, provokes attention.

UpSide 3. Octopus.


A trio is an optimum option when you have a lot of topics for a conversation, but at the same time you need brevity. And this is a challenge. Reduction of the composition has logically resulted in that sounding of all the instruments involved acquired more voluminous tints (...) Refined and simple, free and expressive this program has already had time to acquire the name of a "truly European" one.

Inter Quartet "Clarinetissimo!". Bachiazzola. (2CD). /digi-pack/.


...during the recent two hundred years, the clarinet has been one of main voices of both folk and author music on our planet. Its ability to convey the most delicate emotional tints and states, from a hotshot scream to tender whisper, from merry laughter with sad eyes to an act of magic, from the bazaar of nightclubs to universal clarity strikes.

Vitaliy Ivanov Quartet. Returning live.


It sounds as very delicate, intelligent combination of clear feelings and attentive reflections. All through the time while the disc sounds, one has the haunting feeling that the musicians realize themselves and the space around literally at every second and are able to instantly react to its every motion, because they have inside a full degree of freedom and mastery.

Kaktus Fresh. Kaktus in Kolo live.


Thus, the concert within the project Jazz-Kolo, April, 2007. First, you will not find here cliché standards authors' compositions by our musicians sound here only. And secondly pay attention to the participants list...

Skhid-Side. SkhidSideMen. /digi-pack/


It is musicians of the group that said about their "SkhidSideMen" album that the world had seen pure jazz. I won't argue as personally I had exactly the same feeling about this music. The feeling of pure, fair, simple in its wisdom fire...

Skhid-Side. Brand New.


...they say that it is exactly the album "Brand New" of exactly East-Side that is the best jazz music album of 2005 in Ukraine. Everybody will decide by himself how much it corresponds to the reality.

Mikolaj Trzaska, Studio theater "Arabesque". Krytychni dni. Music for performance. (Periods)


...just before one's eyes. That is, when listening to, for example, the play "Two women who have not seen each other for a long time" you will clearly see the women, and a small square where they met, the color of their hair and temperaments, will be able to discern the voice of each of them. Such expressiveness of performance really thrills.

Kyiv saxophone quartet. Bravo, Sax! (Triptych). /digi-pack/


In skilful hands, it is capable of anything. The triptych "Bravo, Sax!" is called to prove it and it copes with the task very convincingly. There is the whole palette. Delicately? Yes. Delicately enough to look simple. Interesting? You bet. It is a very bright release.

Igor Dyachenko. A Soulful Sax. One Session in Kiev.


Igor Djachenko is a remarkable Kyiv saxophonist with huge experience and skills that one could envy. His saxophone is not an instrument, it is a voice of a person who grieves and dances, enjoys ice cream and plants a tree near the house. As a rule...

Roman Habal. A moonlight night.


...we would not call it definitely jazz all in all, at this disc we are most likely having a variety show option but still there is certain part of jazz here. Because, as I have already mentioned, these are instrumental improvisations on folk song...
Domestic price: 71.64UAH, International price: $15.92USD

Vuraj. Rajok. /digi-pack/.


Belarus bands famous here are specific in their artistic, nonlinear attitude to arrangements, self-irony and they are somehow particularly enlightened, I guess. When one listens to them sometimes it seems that they are singing the anthem of the Sun, facing the dark wall of the ancient forest. And Vuraj in this regard is no exception.
Domestic price: 71.64UAH, International price: $15.92USD

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.

Red Cardell. Narodzhennja. (Naitre) (Birth)


"Red Cardell" wished to create an album open for the whole world. As a result, French chanson was mixed with African rhythms, Ukrainian authentic singing with Oriental, Asian melodies, Celtic archaic with elements of trip- and hip-hop. And all this together laughs, dances, gets a bit sad, makes love...

Second Breath. Save the Blues.


Second Breath is a Kyiv group that has been playing blues for 40 (!) years already. It is quite possible that this is the oldest active blues band not only in Kyiv, but also all through Ukraine. Or, maybe, through considerably wider territories who know...
