The Meeting in the Top 100 jazz albums!

Happy New Year and Merry Christmas to everyone! May the new 2017 year be kind to you, may your life be filled with joy, peace, love and music!
There's a pleasant gift for all Oleg Kireyev's fans and for himself: JazzWeek published the Year End Jazz Chart ' 2016, where we proudly discovered "The Meeting" album on the honorary 100th line! So happy to share the place alongside the greats like Kenny Garrett, René Marie, Branford Marsalis & Kurt Elling, Dr. Lonnie Smith., Yellowjackets, Joe Chambers, Kevin Mahogany, Hiromi, Kenny Barron Trio, right next to Tom Harrell!

We thank all who's been with us throughout the past year and look forward to sseing you at our concerts and playing for you on the stages and internet pages!
