Skhid-Side. SkhidSideMen. /digi-pack/
Today, "SkhidSide" is one of the most qualitative, successful and active Ukrainian jazz projects. It is considering the fact that during the last two years the structure of the band has changed thrice, and today only the front-man Ц the saxophonist Dmitry Aleksandrov is left from the first structure. But he has enough energy to "manage" in parallel two more jazz projects, and to take part in recordings of music of other directions, and to have long everyday exercises, and... however, nothing strange. So simple from the outside, he has in his eyes those very sparkles that distinguish an inspired person from a tired one. He is one of those people who disappear when music starts Ц there remains only the music, so varied, but always alive. For this reason, it changes time and space Ц this is why I do not even speak about the masterful performance, it goes without saying. Fortunately, there are a lot of such musicians today in our country Ц real ones. And, to my greatest satisfaction, you now hear them more and more distinctly. By the way, speaking about the real. It is musicians of the group that said about their "SkhidSideMen" album that the world had seen pure jazz. I won't argue Ц as personally I had exactly the same feeling about this music. The feeling of pure, fair, simple in its wisdom Ц fire... And no doubt that this is Ц real.

Konstantin Ivchuk Group. Surrender. /digi-pack/.


..album leaves a quiet aftertaste of benevolent coolness. It sounds a bit distant, while some emotional bursts Ц yes, they are here too Ц seem to emphasize the leisurely flow of the mainstream, immersion into the shimmering depths, where time loses power imperceptibly, transforms into space.
Domestic price: 201.30UAH, International price: $18.30USD

Konstantin Ionenko. Noema. /digi-pack/.


..these are anyway not flashes or explosions, but Ц light fog, hints, mid-tones, mid-shades.. Heat and cool interweave here rather whimsically Ц 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.
Domestic price: 163.90UAH, International price: $14.90USD

Gregory Nemirovsky. SonGs in the Key of Odd. /eco-pack/.


As the title promises, the album has turned out quite strange Ц but in a good sense. This is the strangeness that can only be afforded by good,†versatile musicians Ц otherwise, originality may easily turn into farce, showing off. This did not happen here Ц one virtually feels with one's skin in what a thin, delicate way all of that is compiled.
Domestic price: 141.90UAH, International price: $12.90USD

Jazz Atmosphere, Dmitry "Bobeen" Alexandrov. Time After Break.


On the one hand, there seems no be nothing superfluous Ц 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 Ц the organism works so smoothly, without failures, that the entire album literary flies at one breath...
Domestic price: 141.90UAH, International price: $12.90USD

Sax Kings. Fever. /digi-pack/.


"Fever" is a studio work. So, on the one hand, there is no living "breathing of the audience", the proper concert experience. But on the other Ц there is no room for concerns, everything is polished to shine (although, I must say, at concerts the quartet also sounds so smoothly that sometimes it seems almost unbelievable)...
Domestic price: 135.30UAH, International price: $12.30USD

Kyiv saxophone quartet. Swing cocktail. Live in Concert. /digi-pack/.


"Swing Cocktail" is a present for all those who love the emotions of "live" recordings and, respectively, concert features of performance of evergreens. Moreover, this time the purely saxophone composition has been expanded Ц on the album, you will have a chance to hear the clarinet, piano, bass, and drums. They do not sound in every piece Ц in this case, these are rather spices.
Domestic price: 135.30UAH, International price: $12.30USD

Sax Kings. Classics & Jazz. Live in concert. /digi-pack/.


The album is a collection of concert recordings Ц and here, you will find not only jazz evergreens performed by the saxophone quartet, which would be quite natural. As evident from the title Ц "Classics & Jazz", half of the album is composed of classical pieces Ц Bach, Purcell, Bizet Ц and this is, admittedly, very specific pleasure.
Domestic price: 135.30UAH, International price: $12.30USD

DOK. DVA. /digi-pack/.


"Brutal pop power" Ц so they call it. But there is a great temptation to also add other words: post-rock plus acoustic acid jazz with trip hop education Ц something like this, probably. However, all these names do not contradict each other Ц because music like this as it is means going beyond the limits of specific style...
Domestic price: 174.90UAH, International price: $15.90USD

Gregory Nemirovsky. Mirages.


...the silent poetry of the atmospheric, almost supernatural winds appeared against the background of clear, transparent rhythms and sometimes fluctuating, changeable bass and key lines. This music seems to pull into some mystic circle, however Ц it also tears, transforms it with sporadic emotional splashes, does not let it calm down melancholically, provokes attention.
Domestic price: 164.12UAH, International price: $14.92USD

UpSide 3. Octopus.


A trio is an optimum option when you have a lot of topics for a conversation, but at the same time you need brevity. And Ц this is a challenge. Reduction of the composition has logically resulted in that sounding of all the instruments involved acquired more voluminous tints (...) Refined and simple, free and expressive Ц this program has already had time to acquire the name of a "truly European" one.
Domestic price: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

Vitaliy Ivanov Quartet. Returning live.


It sounds as very delicate, intelligent combination of clear feelings and attentive reflections. All through the time while the disc sounds, one has the haunting feeling that the musicians realize themselves and the space around literally at every second Ц and are able to instantly react to its every motion, because they have inside a full degree of freedom and mastery.
Domestic price: 196.90UAH, International price: $17.90USD

Kaktus Fresh. Kaktus in Kolo live.


Thus, the concert within the project Jazz-Kolo, April, 2007. First, you will not find here cliché standards Ц authors' compositions by our musicians sound here only. And secondly Ц pay attention to the participants list...
Domestic price: 141.90UAH, International price: $12.90USD

Skhid-Side. Brand New.


...they say that it is exactly the album "Brand New" of exactly УEast-SideФ that is the best jazz music album of 2005 in Ukraine. Everybody will decide by himself how much it corresponds to the reality.
Domestic price: 454.30UAH, International price: $41.30USD

Studio theater "Arabesque", Mikolaj Trzaska. Krytychni dni. Music for performance. (Periods)


...just before one's eyes. That is, when listening to, for example, the play "Two women who have not seen each other for a long time" Ц you will clearly see the women, and a small square where they met, the color of their hair and temperaments, will be able to discern the voice of each of them. Such expressiveness of performance really thrills.
Domestic price: 252.12UAH, International price: $22.92USD

Igor Dyachenko. A Soulful Sax. One Session in Kiev.


Igor Djachenko is a remarkable Kyiv saxophonist with huge experience and skills that one could envy. His saxophone is not an instrument, it is a voice of a person who grieves and dances, enjoys ice cream and plants a tree near the house. As a rule...
Domestic price: 196.90UAH, International price: $17.90USD

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


...And Ц freedom, needed in treatment of the form and details. This is what this album is comprised of Ц 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 Ц it does not work, it does not dance.
Domestic price: 251.90UAH, International price: $22.90USD

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


The album is devoted to work by Freddie Hubbard Ц 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..
Domestic price: 130.90UAH, International price: $11.90USD

Konstantin Ionenko. Deep Immersion.


.."Deep Immersion" Ц 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 Ц but...
Domestic price: 0.00UAH, International price: $0.00USD

Cherkasy Jazz Quintet. Remembering the Beatles. (re-edition). /digi-pack/.


Thus Ц 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...
Domestic price: 130.90UAH, International price: $11.90USD

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!.."
Domestic price: 130.90UAH, International price: $11.90USD

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 Ц is raising a glass and proposing a toast to health of our Cherkasy musicians, to these surprising, talented and enthusiastic people..."
Domestic price: 130.90UAH, International price: $11.90USD

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...
Domestic price: 197.12UAH, International price: $17.92USD

Dudko quintet. Sofia.


"Sofia" is not something soft and sweet. Fresh improvisation music with the Slavonic flavor Ц 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...
Domestic price: 141.90UAH, International price: $12.90USD

ILya Alabuzhev. Recovery. /digi-pack/.


I do not even know whether I should refer to Illya's music as complicated one. Objectively, presumably, yes Ц 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 Ц it comes back to life..
Domestic price: 124.30UAH, International price: $11.30USD

Strelchenko-Band. My Day.


..it seems that "My Day" is the first Ukrainian jazz album "spin" round the button accordion... Spin perfectly Ц Kostyantyn Strelchenko has proved to be a true master. This refers, sure, to the purely technical virtuosity as well Ц and it does impress. But one would like to separately emphasize another mastery, the internal one...
Domestic price: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

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


..two concerts took place on that evening in actual fact Ц 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 Ц and, thus, revealing the audience with the music. And here, presumably, there will be no objections: all of that Ц happened!
Domestic price: 306.90UAH, International price: $27.90USD

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


Everything coincides on that spring evening Ц the mood, energy, mastery. And Ц 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 Ц in different thing...
Domestic price: 141.90UAH, International price: $12.90USD

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 Ц 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.
Domestic price: 196.90UAH, International price: $17.90USD

VSH-Ensemble, Vladimir Shabaltas. 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 Ц 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.
Domestic price: 196.90UAH, International price: $17.90USD

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


Season 2007 was opened and closed with performances by, actually, Igor Zakus with Z-Band Ц and the both concerts have now become constituent parts of this series. At closing of the season, an absolutely new program sounded Ц "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: 141.90UAH, International price: $12.90USD

Z-Band, Igor Zakus. Kolomyyky live.


This disc is double exclusive. First Ц 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 Ц 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: 141.90UAH, International price: $12.90USD

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 Ц you can hardly mix this handwriting with anything else. I am sure Ц even if only the bass by Igor Zakus sounded on the disc, it would be a rich, varied jazz album...
