A retrospective album of the living legend of our jazz and his famous team. It is highly interesting due to the choice of pieces and their profound humanity.
Album review«The current album, according to the last beliefs of Alexey Kozlov, is a bright example of postmodern approach to a repertoire formation. It is an expressly eclectic mixture of incompatible, at first sight, genres in the creative work of one team. It’s clear to everyone who for a long time has been following Kozlov’s music who even in pre-“Arsenal” time had already tried all the possible styles – beginning bop and cool jazz and ending avant-garde. And if we remember the “Arsenal” time and the following new period of composing activity of the author who wrote all the pieces in the album then his eclectics seems to be very logical.»
From the “ArtBeat music” press release
"The aesthetic conception of the album can be expressed in a simple idea probably an utopian one,” When at last will people on the Earth stop be at enmity, will learn to forgive each other, not to revenge for the offenses, to feel sorry for those who does harm knowing that he will inevitably and severely be punished by the Higher power? When will the mankind come to its senses and become a bit wiser?"
