ANDREI SOLOVYOV, trumpet
p r o j e c t s :
(acid jazz, ethno funk)
Instrumental duo with Moscow virtuoso Vladimir Goloukhov (vibes). Project takes its origin in the beginning of 90s. At that time group was mostly oriented on chamber improvised minimalism. New program is based on traditional Japanese music and modern arrangements.
(industrial pop/rock group)
Project with female singer Natalia Rosenbaum and a number of other misicians. CD issued by Moscow label "Landy Star" (10 tracks) is the only recorded document by the band.
(free improvised jazz)
GErman-RUssian project: this unique recording was made in Moscow in 1992 and is one of the most significant documents of West-East collaboration in European new improvised music. Harsh, aggressive, but intriguing and provocative, this album, which cover is symbolically designed using children war drawings (that reminds of the World War II), proves that music is an universal instrument of peace and mutual understanding. Trumpet philosopher Solovyov and bass innovator Kowald are supported each by one compatriot, Russian guitarist Sasha Kostikov and German drummer Dietrich Rauschtenberger.
POLITE REFUSAL (VEZHLIVY OTKAZ)
Legendary russian art-rock group nothing to compare with. Organized in 1985 by composer/guitarist/singer Roman Suslov. Toured around the world during 17 years of its existence (see link to web-site).
(acid jazz & improvised funk)
Duo by Andrei Solovyov (trumpet,electronics) and Alexander Kostikov (guitar, electronics). Group''s evolution was from free improvisation (see GERU) to sampled grooves and acid jazz remixes. Principal recording of Post Factum - contemporary interpretation of Duke Ellington''s Sacred Concerts (dedicated to 100th anniversary of jazz giant).
