Album review

Both members of this duo share master's status in Russian jazz community, both are well-known among the experts. Oleg Kireyev who made his debut with now already legendary Ufa’s “Orlan” in the late 80s, went to conquer Europe in the 90s, found his way in London and Warsaw; then followed Moscow and a lot of different projects including international ones. Successfully combining music playing with administrative work, Oleg is always in trend, and that is very critical for a modern musician, especially for a jazzman. Evgeny Grechischev is not so active in terms of touring life (most probably, because of his teaching activity) but he performs very often in Moscow – as a solo player, as an accompanist, and as the founder of ‘Moscow Jazz Passengers’ quartet (see their albums "Ocean" (2005) and "Dreams" (2014), and as the leader of his trio.
