Strelchenko-Band. My Day.

Reviews (1)
Strelchenko-Band. My Day.
The first album by Strelchenko-Band is unique, without exaggeration. Already in that, at least, the central instrument of this project is bayan (the button accordion). In the UMKA catalogue, for example, till now there have been only two performers whose albums it is possible in this sense to consider as its relatives – those are Ihor Zavadsky and Motion Trio. But – strictly speaking – in the both cases mentioned the accordion, not the button accordion, is the key instrument. Moreover, Ihor Zavadsky performs non-jazz music, and Motion Trio, actually, is a Polish, not Ukrainian project. Therefore, it seems that "My Day" is the first Ukrainian jazz album "spin" round the button accordion... Spin perfectly – Kostyantyn Strelchenko has proved to be a true master. This refers, sure, to the purely technical virtuosity as well – and it does impress. But one would like to separately emphasize another mastery, the internal one – the ability to create an atmosphere, picture, harmonious palette of moods. In spite of different, diverse compositions (the author's material, plus Tatar and Greek dances, plus curtsy to Chick Corea), the album "My Day" is exactly an album, an integral interesting trip. Interesting, by the way, not only due to the slide plays, but also to the group's composition: in the end, the button accordion-contrabass-percussion is not a too banal option for a trio, is it? And Valentyn Korneinko and Andriy Moroz are from among the best in their business, it is known. And that is why there is the feeling that "My Day" can become a pleasant companion far not for just one day...

Konstantin Strelchenko - bayan
Valentin Kornienko - double bass
Andrey Moroz - percussion

Cherkasy Jazz Quintet. Homage to Freddie Hubbard. /re-edition, digi-pack/.


The album is devoted to work by Freddie Hubbard – maybe, the most skillful and multi-style trumpeter in the history of jazz. For two decades, Hubbard, according to data of a questionnaire poll by "DownBeat" magazine competed for the title of the leading jazz trumpeter with Miles Davis..

Konstantin Ionenko. Deep Immersion.


.."Deep Immersion" – an album by a bass player, in which he holds all the strings, while still able to stay in the shade. But this strangely shifts "the assembly point". Typically, most attention is automatically attracted to solo moments – but...

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/.

Cherkasy Jazz Quintet. We like funky-jazz, and You?.. (re-edition). /digi-pack/.


In fact, this is already the third release of the first album by Cherkasy Jazz Quintet. "Speaking about jazz means wasting the time when one could listen to this wonderful music. The maximum that can be done – is raising a glass and proposing a toast to health of our Cherkasy musicians, to these surprising, talented and enthusiastic people..."

Vladimir Shabaltas. Missing Person. /digi-pack/.


It was his last gig as a leader. As he said, he gave this concert while he felt hungry for jazz and real improvisation. And it was a very inspired, enthusiastic gig, which Shabaltas liked a lot, and wanted it to be released as a CD. All we can do is to make it happen after he's tragically gone...

Dudko quintet. Sofia.


"Sofia" is not something soft and sweet. Fresh improvisation music with the Slavonic flavor – bright and rather poignant music, which in no way fits for serving as just a background. It requires attentive listening, and it is just pleasant to listen to it attentively, to track the line of each instrument...

ILya Alabuzhev. Recovery. /digi-pack/.


I do not even know whether I should refer to Illya's music as complicated one. Objectively, presumably, yes – although, to my mind, its flow and development in every play is so natural, easy that the architecture just steps back to the background. Because in his hands the music matter stops being an abstract idea – it comes back to life..

ShockolaD, Off-Quar-Tet. Jazz:Kolo:Bez. live. (2CD). /digi-pack/


..two concerts took place on that evening in actual fact – and those performances were so different that almost no temptation even arises to compare them with each other. But another thing is always the main one: whether the musicians succeed in revealing themselves in music – and, thus, revealing the audience with the music. And here, presumably, there will be no objections: all of that – happened!

Dmitry "Bobeen" Alexandrov, Mark Soskin, Andrew Arnautov, Alex Fantaev. Skhid-Side meets Mark Soskin. (live).


Everything coincides on that spring evening – the mood, energy, mastery. And – the internal freedom of people who came together to once again create a common language... And we could describe the swift and lyrical Aleksandrov, the artistic Fantaev, thoughtful and easy-going Arnautov, light and deep at the same time Soskin, but music lies – in different thing...

Alex Fantaev. First Kiss. /digi-pack/


..it will not be an overstatement if we say that the debut album by Fantaev has been virtually the most expected jazz release 2008 in Ukraine. But even more than that – already following the first concert presentations after the recording but before the official release of the disc, "First Kiss" was named the best jazz program of the year.

Vladimir Shabaltas, VSH-Ensemble. Acid Menu live. /digi-pack/


VSH-Ensemble can be considered a temporary concert project, a sort of a gamble. However, in view of the quality of the music material represented here, one would like to believe that activity of the project will not be ended thereon – in the end, as they say, it is temporary things that last the longest... At all events, it seems that "Acid Menu" has succeeded for one hundred percent.

Z-Band, Igor Zakus. Zakus Was Here live.


Season 2007 was opened and closed with performances by, actually, Igor Zakus with Z-Band – and the both concerts have now become constituent parts of this series. At closing of the season, an absolutely new program sounded – "Kolomyiky". Well, and the program "Zakus Was Here" sounded during the opening, and it is it that you are going to hear here.
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Z-Band, Igor Zakus. Kolomyyky live.


This disc is double exclusive. First – as any recording of a live concert, it has fixated instantaneous changes of moods and states of the musicians, fluctuations of temperature in the hall. This is evident. But the main thing – now you have in front of you not just a concert by Igor Zakus with friends, but also a presentation of his absolutely new program, "Kolomyyky".
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

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...

Igor Zakus. Zakus Was Here.


Listen how soft but bright the instrument sounds in his hands, how much of his sincere heart is given to it – you can hardly mix this handwriting with anything else. I am sure – even if only the bass by Igor Zakus sounded on the disc, it would be a rich, varied jazz album...

Igor Zavadsky. 9th Planet. (2CD).


In the "9th Planet" the chronological period to which the musical pieces included in the CD refer was expanded now ranging from the XVI cent. to the XXI cent., which is a half of a millennium! The repertoire’s genre variety was also widened: Igor played rock and world’s pop hits of the XX and XXI century for the first time.

Igor Zavadsky. Ave Love. (2CD).


"Ave Love" is the 8 th music album by Igor Zavadsky. "Ave" (Latin: "angel's greeting") in some other languages, for example, in German, means both "hi" and "goodbye"... All recordings of the album "Ave Love" were made at Zavadsky's concerts in the period between January 21, 2008 and January 21, 2009.
Domestic price: 260.73UAH, International price: $23.92USD

Igor Zavadsky. Mysterium. (2CD).


"Mystery" is the sixth album and the continued music performance anthology by Igor Zavadsky, where capacities of the accordion in various genres are demonstrated as extensively as possible: classics, jazz, avant-garde, modern adaptations of folk and popular music.
Domestic price: 260.73UAH, International price: $23.92USD

Igor Zavadsky. Festival. (2CD).


"Festival" is the fifth consecutive album by Igor Zavadsky, it consists of two discs. In addition to solo performances, a duo with the accordion, and the performance accompanied by a chamber orchestra, for the first time on the disc Igor Zavadsky used the sound of his instrument as part of a large symphonic orchestra and choir.
Domestic price: 260.73UAH, International price: $23.92USD

Motion Trio. Pictures from the Street.


It seems to me that none who has at least once heard performance by Motion Trio – and the more so none who has seen it – will ever forget, mix it up with anybody. And the thing is not only original composition – although you will hardly find among performers of jazz, art rock, folk fusion another trio what would consist exceptionally of accordions.
Domestic price: 253.75UAH, International price: $23.28USD

Igor Zavadsky. Danielf. Concert recording.


You understand by yourselves that the energy of a studio will never come up with the energy of a large and alive audience. In this album both new compositions and new adaptations of old compositions from previous albums are presented.
Domestic price: 184.43UAH, International price: $16.92USD

Igor Zavadsky. Minor. From Bach to Piazzolla.


At the beginning of this album, toccata and fugue D-minor of Iohann Bach sound. As for me, this is quite a solemn beginning, which at once sets you into quiet and thoughtful listening. At that, it is minor, the time for thinking and observing.
Domestic price: 184.43UAH, International price: $16.92USD

Igor Zavadsky. Angel Trills.


In this album a unique recording is presented - solo performance of an accordion accompanied by a chamber orchestra in concerts of Vivaldi and the duet with clavecin in compositions of Bach and Tartini. It is exactly Tartini, with whom both the title of the album and its idea content are connected – the matter concerns the struggle between good and evil.
