Likhoshva-Ovsianikov quartet. Swing Brothers.

It seems that in this case it is already possible to speak about a certain line. For the previous work by Sergiy Ovsianikov – the solo album "Bride" – was also recorded, as the saying is, "live in studio". But this time we already see not a solo but a joint project – the quartet of Likhoshva-Ovsianikov (the guitarist Volodymyr Likhoshva, as known, names himself a student of Ovsianikov). Thus, this time two guitarists at once will stand in the center of the project. And – in the tandem they sound very convincingly. If we already try to describe that with words, the feeling is such that this music – flows. Freely, calmly – but by no means slowly, and the more so there is not a trace of stagnant water. The both musicians lead an equal dialogue – and that is really a talk, live communication, in which one can clearly hear both attentiveness and respect to the interlocutor. However, actually it is a dialogue for four – certainly, we cannot but pay its due to the rhythm section. Andriy Arnautov and Oleksiy Fantaev unobtrusively but expressly and confidently outline the riverbed, in which this music flows so easily, so nicely. Here, nobody "beats the wave" – maybe, it is for this reason that everybody has time to say his own significant word, and not once. Listening to this kind of communication – is pleasure.

This album is a tribute to rich musical tradition and also the result of many years work on performing and composing traditional flamenco. I have been learning to play to reach the soul of this musical phenomenon, to reveal the secrets of the art of flamenco.. – Eugen Sedko

Viktoriya Kulykovska. Romantic Guitar.

The content of this album is rather in line with its title – romantic, world-famous tunes, light and soft performance, as if a touch of September air. And what makes the collection special is the author's guitar arrangements of almost all of the pieces presented here..

Konstantin Ionenko. Noema. /digi-pack/.

..these are anyway not flashes or explosions, but – light fog, hints, mid-tones, mid-shades.. Heat and cool interweave here rather whimsically – one only needs to make a little step aside to be inside, in the heart of the music, and for it to appear in one's heart.

Hryhoriy Lukyanenko. Pory roku. /digi-pack/. (Seasons)

...And once again one gets convinced that it is not by accident that the guitar remains one of the most popular instruments in the world. It is able to convey this palette of feelings and so brightly when in trained hands that words become simply redundant.

SV Savana. Two Ways.

That's right: it is a fusion of diverse, multi-style guitar music and spicy rhythmic patterns – all of that together sounds very emotional and surprisingly rich. Another proof of that in order to create interesting, live music one does not necessarily need to gather a bunch of people.

Jean-Pierre Froehly. Away from the crowd. The music of Attila Zoller.

Probably, you know music by Zoller. The key zest of this album, however, is that the main emphasis is put, strangely enough, not quite on the guitar: together with drums and the contrabass it creates the basic canvas, and the already mentioned contrabass together with the flute and, from time to time, the piano – add to the sounding the brightest and deepest colors, and not only solo..

SV acoustic. Waitin' For.

this music sounds timely – although, possibly, the point is that it simply does not belong to any definite time. And for this reason, having no rigid anchors, it feels comfortable anywhere, in any surroundings. In the end, one can hear in it echoes of the rock heat of the 1960s, and passion of flamenco, and blues and jazz greetings, and the school of the classic guitar, and country...

Alexey Krupsky, Alexey Wagner. April Sky. /digi-pack/

The idea of the recording arose quite spontaneously, unexpectedly for the musicians themselves – however, the album sounds regular, balanced, sometimes even a bit cool. And at the same time – warm, transparent, delicate, soft. Nothing strange – for the April sky is so changeable...
