Olga Voichenko. (feat. A. Schilkloper). Charivni Sny. (Magic Dreams)
It looks like Ukrainian jazz has, finally, started active making up for everything that it did not manage to realize during the last few years. That is why release of every new jazz album is now an important, noticeable event. But when the issue is release of a new album by Olga Voychenko – such event seems twice more noticeable. And that is both because Olga has been for several years already named the best Ukrainian jazz vocalist – and the grounds for that have always been very substantial. And because almost seven years have passed from the moment of release of the first full-value album, and participation in a few additional projects could in no way satisfy the hunger of fans. Rather, vice versa – the hunger has been ever growing, I can witness that. In addition, the public knew that this time a whole cohort of known, bright musicians co-operated with Olga, among them Arkadiy Shilkloper, Vladimir Zinkovsky and many others. Clearly, that it warmed up the impatience. Well, and, in the end, this is an event just because Olga Voychenko has recorded a quite unexpected, but interesting album – she has let free both herself, and the musicians. Here, two Russian-language pieces have been included, and the very animated "My Favorite Things". But 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. And, I think, it is just the beginning – it is known that Olga has some serious long-term plans. And, consequently, the experiments will continue. For sure, as the potential is enormous.

Anna Mia Quintet. Miasophy. /mini-pack/.


First, it's just beautiful – and, moreover, not that simple. Anna Mia Quintet musicians have recorded a seemingly chamber album, but this music would be no less appropriate on a large stage. Very intimate, with a bunch of soft pauses and undertones in its colors – and, at the same time, very prominent, voluminous. Interesting..

BUDU band. Vydykh Vdykh. (2CD). /premium, eco-pack/. (Exhale Inhale)


...And – freedom, needed in treatment of the form and details. This is what this album is comprised of – well, and a jolt of haphazardness, to spell out in words the somewhat absurd lyricism of the world capable of joyfully and sadly beautiful acts. Even if it doesn't (?) make sense. Exhale and inhale, mind and heart, because otherwise – it does not work, it does not dance.

Laura Marti. Shine. /digi-pack/.


..on the one hand – the fantasy of jazz musicians. And on the other, all these laces of motions and patterns are thought over and embodied so confidently and easily that this ease allows one to not focus too much, but skip and let it go to the back of one’s mind right away. Instead, one listens to the main melodic line, the beauty and the flexible power of the voice..

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.

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)...

Z-Band, Igor Zakus. 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

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.

LoTus, Rosava. 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.

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...

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...

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...
