Album reviewA year ago Enver izmailov, a Crimean Tatar born in Ferghana , deservedly got a title of People’s Artist of Ukraine. But unfortunately, after his albums “Legend” and “Minaret”, that got the world recognition, were released, no new discs appeared in his discography, despite a lot of music composed by Enver and many interpretations of folk, rock, pop, and jazz classics .
“ArtBeat Music” decided to change the situation.
The albums “Storm” and “Silk Road” are a scattering of unique in music and impeccable in execution “diamonds” created solo or via studio covering during a decade and compiled by the author into two separates CDs. And one more important thing: many of the pieces written by Maestro being his concert hits, are published for the first time!
And here is a review made by Enver on his two releases in “Artbeat Music”:
I am amazed by a high level of the edition. Sure, every musician would like his works to be published in such fine manner . I am holding the discs in my hands with great delight and I wish the same to all the respected music lovers!”
