Dennis Adu. Influences. /digi-pack/.

Dennis Adu. Influences. /digi-pack/.
In the Ukrainian jazz circles, Dennis Adu is virtually the best known young trumpeter. He appeared there very timely – and really worked a lot, in a heap of projects, in different styles, he has had a chance to play with a number of stars – local and international ones. He has experimented, studied, absorbed (that's what the influences are about), grown above himself. Hurried slowly. And finally he has matured for his first album: from the name on the cover to all the music under the cover, because Dennis is the author of all the compositions here. Here you will not hear a "raw" part, everything sounds sound and tight – despite the rather light atmosphere. That, in turn, does not at all mean that the music is light-minded – it is just that there is the impression of weightless concentration, where challenging things are done carefully and with joy. As if everything was polished repeatedly – even if it actually was not. Perhaps, that is why the melodies flow somewhat aloof (although exactly in the middle of the album this impression will temporarily but definitely disappear), but in this cool lyricism there is its own – and significant – charm.
Dennis Adu - trumpet, flugelhorn
Andrew Gould - alto saxophone (1,5)
Dmytro Aleksandrov - tenor and soprano saxophone
Michael Dease - trombone (5,8)
Pavlo Lytvynenko - piano, rhodes

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/.


"...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!.."

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..

Strelchenko-Band. My Day.


..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...

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.

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".

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...
