This album - a contribution to the "golden fund" of Soviet and Russian jazz mainstream - was conceived by George Garanian 12 years ago, but the work was not completed at the same time. Now the missing solo episodes were recorded and Andrey Levin at Mosfilm masterfully brought all the phonograms into a single and powerful canvas.
