"Elegant, extravagant conductor, Knight Big Band ... He somehow perfect blend of intelligence, gentleness, and a grand principle. He understood. But he was so talented man, he knew how this principle and its determination to express in some very good form. "(YS Saulsky).
. "His efficiency, combined with humor, combined with his personal charm enabled in Rostov very hard to put on my feet pop-jazz education ..." (VB Feyertag).
. "I was shocked by his performance of the orchestra
. It was a live jazz. All his energies Kim handed musicians. He literally blew his temperament Orchestra. It was a "live" drive, "live" swing. Big Band Kim Nazaretova become a "university orchestra for musicians." (AN Batashev).
. Few incomprehensible to today's generation, the name "Kim" in 1936 was quite frequent and stood for is very simple: the Communist Youth International
. And so it happened that such a good Soviet name is closely linked to the bad old bourgeois word "jazz".
. Kim took all appropriate steps complete musical education (school, college, university), and at all stages was accompanied by his love for a foreign art
. He instituted a teacher - a graduate of the Moscow Conservatory (class of Professor L. Oborina) MI Katz - did not recognize any of jazz and saw a brilliant classical pianist Kim. But theorist GM Barseghyan very loyal to the harmonic Exercise your students and even allowed to play the modulation jazz harmonies.
. In 1956, Kim graduated with honors from Nazareth College and received in Moscow not to LN Oborin, and Kharkiv Conservatory: so be circumstances
. In Kharkov, Kim makes his first band "Friendship". It is a kind of professional evaluation of this internationalist (it played a student in Germany, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Romania), the team gave Alexander Bronevitsky: a Leningrad ensemble he called the same way - "Friendship". Repertoire drawn from broadcasts of Willis Conover "Hour of Jazz" and captured movies - such as "Sun Valley Serenade" and "George of the Dinka-jazz".
Since October 1960. Kim Nazareth starts cooperation with Kharkiv TYuZom: first as a conductor of the orchestra, then - musical director of the. For three years he wrote the music for eight performances.
The end of the Conservatory (1961) coincided with piano competitions graduate conservatories, Ukraine, Moldova and Belarus, where Kim took first place. But perhaps the most striking event of the Kharkov period was meeting with Eddie Rosner. During a tour of Ukraine in the orchestra fell ill pianist. Kim agreed to replace. He explained that the play, and gave a concert costume almost three sizes smaller. But this did not prevent the first great success Nazaretova.
Kharkiv at the time was quite a major cultural center of the country with a very intense concert life. So many knew about Kim and even tried to "lure" to himself: Constantine Orbelian persuaded to go to the State Orchestra of Armenia, Eddie Rosner - in his own orchestra of Belarus. But Kim's parents insisted on returning to Rostov-na-Donu. Especially since Kim and his wife lived in the apartment, and three Petya - his grandmother in g. Slavic.
In August 63rd Nazaretovyh family moved to Rostov. Kim works in the Rostov school of arts and gives concerts in the Philharmonic. But jazz it still "does not let go". And the dream of a jazz orchestra in Rostov suddenly seemed very real. Already in September, with the help of a friend - saxophonist Vladimir Popov - was formed by the first part, . that six weeks later proved to be a small program in the cinema "Russia" came on tour in the Rostov-on-Don, Oleg Lundstrem Orchestra,
. Here's how it all began.
In the summer of 64-th band began to play in the park they. October Revolution on the dance floor "Melody" and under that name lived long enough. The team did not have a "permanent residence", tramping through all kinds of DC, which, however, did not stop to make new programs and regularly show them in the city.
At the same time, Kim worked in the theater Nazareth (preserved music for the play "Warsaw Melody", "Abduction of bulbs," "Twenty years later," "A good man out Sezuana). I want a little delayed on the play by Bertolt Brecht, all the musical numbers which resolved in different jazz forms, genres, styles. "Song of the day of the holy Never" - jazz-rock, "Song of the eighth elephant" prinizana rhythms of boogie-woogie, "Song of a water-carrier" entirely in the style of swing, and the beautiful ballad "Song of smoke" - a lyrical performance center.
In the early 70's jazz Russia shocked the two events. In 1971 the country came to the legendary Duke Ellington with his unique orchestra of soloists, and a year later - Orchestra directed by trumpeter and composer Ted Jones and drummer Mel Louis. "Live" performance of idols, of course, stirred up the creative potential of the Rostov jazz orchestra Kim Nazaretova. The musicians began to look for his sound, his individual style of execution. Enriched and expanded the repertoire.
Has come to the fateful history of the national jazz 74-th year: the decision of the Ministry of Culture of the RSFSR in the music schools of twenty cities in Russia have been opened pop and jazz Office (EDO). Unlike other schools, in which EDI was attached to the piano or spirits offices in Rostov-on-Don, it immediately became independent, and therefore is officially "the first in Russia".
