Higher and higher: «The Meeting» album moved up to the 25th place in the JazzWeek chart
"The Meeting" album by Oleg Kireyev and Keith Javors improves its position: for 9 weeks of the presence in the Jazz Week chart, the release moved up to the 25th place, breaking more than 10 lines and leaving behind new editions of such jazz artists as, Chico Freeman, Joe Lovano and Charlie Hunter. Let's see what will happen next!
What's cool (to me, at least) about the result is how unabashed the band is in swinging genuinely hard on chestnut exotica like Puerto Rican-born Ellington trombonist Juan Tizol's "Caravan," which Oleg Kireyev turned to as an encore, and seems born to blow, dervish-like.
