Alexey Bogolyubov. My "Cool & Crazy" world. /digi-pack/
From the first seconds, the album creates a specific, friendly space, 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. Olexiy quickly enough (being only 23 now) matured for recording of a solo project – and he has really matured. If one did not know about the active performances with various compositions, it could seem that for a long time he was exclusively engaged in keeping silent, in observation and accumulation – in order to now implement this whole luggage of experiences at once in one integral project. At least, it is such implementation that he has succeeded in. 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. And – as the organizer. The latter, presumably, is most convincingly illustrated by the invited drummers – in view of the fact that the album can really be conditionally divided into two parts, cool and crazy. Sergiy Tabunschyk, characterized by his ability to unobtrusively but mathematically clearly fill the space, put a dozen of accents where a few would be enough – but at the same time in a surprising way not to make a single superfluous motion, sounds in the first four compositions (actually, cool). The second half of the album – tends to the crazy. Olexiy Fantanaev, who played in the next two plays, is also a recognized master of delicate pauses – but he creates his line more emotionally, with noticeable love to "southern" rhythms and experiments, therefore the flow grows perceptibly warmer. Well, and in the two concluding tracks we hear Olexander Murenko, the owner of the expressive and sometimes a bit flamboyant performance manner – his playing added here drive rock-fusion shades.

Everything mentioned does not mean that there is nothing to say about the other participants, but – how long can one hide beauty behind words? You'd better – listen to the music...

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.

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.

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/.

"...In our employees, we appreciate Creativity and the ability of Teamwork, of hearing and supporting each other. In a democratic society we crave for Freedom and dream of living in Joy. Lord, but I have just described JAZZ! In music and in life!.."

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.

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..

Nataliya Lebedeva Ensemble. 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...

Anatoly Alexanian, Alexey Krupsky, Jazz Impression. 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: 382.20UAH, International price: $27.30USD

Nataliya Lebedeva Ensemble. 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: 320.60UAH, International price: $22.90USD

Nataliya Lebedeva Ensemble. Paints. 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.
