Moscow Sax Quintet - a group whose many feats include playing versions of
Charlie Parker's improvised solos in five-part harmony and at breakneck speed --
was founded in 1987 by Vladimir Zaremba, a professor of saxophones at the
Moscow Institute of Culture. Born in Magnitogorsk in 1949, Zaremba was turned on
to jazz by recordings he heard on the Voice of America. He left his home town as
a teen-ager to travel with a group, and later played in the army band, before
moving on to Moscow. There he trained at the famous Glessin Music Institute and
has played with a number of small jazz groups and with symphony orchestras.
Zaremba formed the MSQ at the Moscow Philharmonic
Society, recruiting his band, for which he plays first tenor and other
woodwinds, from the cream of the crop. The group includes: Alexander Boychuk on
first alto, soprano sax, and clarinet; Gennady Pakhtusov on second tenor, and
flute. Oleg Ageyev is on second alto and soprano sax; Vladimir Konibolotsky
holds down the baritone sax position, and also plays clarinet. In addition to
this horn quintet, there is a rhythm section made up of Vladimir Soloviov on
piano, Igor Shestov on bass, and Alexander Churikov on drums. The musicians
boast an impressive array of academic credentials. They are also frequent
performers at concerts and festivals. And their radio and television credits
date back to the Soviet Era.
