The best kept secret in music

"http://www.jazzworldquest.com/njazz.shtml"

Not ordinary fusion but a bold, high tension memorable sound blending with dexterity and technique
a wide spectre of jazz rock grooves. There is an explosion of enthusiasm and passion bursting out from
the music of these young inventive musicians solid connected to jazz. - JazzWorldQuest

"I am always on the hunt for new, exciting and fresh sounding jazz. This newest discovery comes from Moscow,
Russia."

"This is a very young (twenty-something) group of artists who demonstrate a compassion for jazz music.
When you listen to them play you sense this emotion. Alex Nadjarov strikes me as one of those incredibly
talented individuals who has a great future ahead of him. He is a serious leader and allows his band mates to
stretch out on solos. "

"Some of the great features possessed by the band are strong compositions from the keyboard player Alex Nadjarov,
an extremely well developed sense of space, just the right amount of funkiness, a group "ear" that listens
carefully, doesn't overplay or leave passages empty of emotional playing, and they have a lot of soul."

Bio

"Our message" or something like that

We are band playing all original music in jazz/fusion style. Why? It's a music we all like. We are very interested in
exploring new rhythms, the combination of latin and rock on the basement of traditional mainstream jazz musicianship
and elements of musical language, also involving any other new music styles we like. Fusion is for us not a kind of
mixture but a new formed musical language that has much unexplored areas.

A short bio of our band

The first performance of this band happened in spring of 2001, the "landscape" composition was performed by
Dmitrij Grishin on flute, Alex Nadzharov on piano, Alex Zavolokin on bass and Peter Ivshin on drums. Next
one was on December,1, 2001 , the band won prize at Moscow First
Festival of Jazz and Pop music "Music of the new generation". Then in 2002 band has participated in Moscow
student jazz festival "Festos" and won a prize for performing a composition "Life line" by Chick Corea. We
should mention that his music influenced us much then and now. That year we performed as a quintett with
Yurij Topchij on guitar joining us. Later we took part in "Festos"-2003 through 2006 with compositions
"eclipse","third wish" in 2003, "expectation","thirty three" in 2004, "my cappuccino","flashback" in 2005,
"modal eleven" in 2006. Several compositions - "33" and "my cappuccino" were awarded by a special diploma
by Moscow Musical Society.
There played Alex Gordeev on alto sax(2001 through 2003), Timofej Hazanov on alto sax (2004), Alex Stefanovskiy (2001 through 2005)

Music
Till 2004 we played quite rarely, in 2003 we decided to change things and made our first studio recordings, among them
were "landscape" and "third wish". Then in 2004 we recorded some more and compiled all that into one album called
"thirty three".
For now we prefer the versions of our songs recorded live at concert in Elena Kamburova's Theatre, especially "third wish", that is almost
a very different version.
Our most recent live recording for now is "modal eleven" recorded in August, 2006
