Here's how the label describes this album:
Vladimir Galaktionov - Russian Project
The 45 minutes you'll spend with Vladimir's particular horn style of jazz transcends countries and politics. Indeed, if you didn't look at the linear notes, you probably would never guess that smooth, electronic tracks like 'Before the Solar Eclipse' were composed, arranged, recorded and mixed by a guy called Vladimir in a Moscow studio. The softness and expanse of this particular track seems like the end credits to a disaster movie. A far cry from the opening 'Russian Dance', with its playful, vowel vocals among the stretching jangles of enhanced wind chimes. But then the busy Christmas horn wails its quick notes within, not over, the backing keyboards, giving the listener a full sense of being out in the cold at a live concert. Even though it's all warm in the studio.
The traditionally mainstream tracks like 'Just:' are my personal favorites. The pictures it paints: You're in love. It's late at night. You've got nothing better to do than hold her and smile. Let the trumpet player do all the work on his blow thang and keyboard. Tonight's your night for love.
8 tracks of varying departments and paces, giving every jazz buff a crack at loving it. Luckily, it's not an import, but available right here in the US. So there's no reason not to check it out, is thereN
