This sizzling Jazz saxophone quintet of Russian musicians totally captures the Jazz feeling with their magical sound on this album, entitled The Moscow Sax Quintet: The Jazznost Tour. Vladimir Zaremba’s arrangements of classics by Fat Waller, The Beatles, George Gershwin, and ‘Bird’ create a unique harmonic Big Band sound in the spirit of Supersax. When they interpret Charlie ‘Bird’ Parker’s improvised solos, playing them in 5-part harmony at a breakneck speed (as if they were one instrument), you can hear the mastery of their skill in the music.

 

                “…astonishing is the breathtaking virtuosity of the ensemble work

                                                                                                      – Joel Klauber, Jazziz Magazine

 

Founded in 1987 by Vladimir Zaremba, a professor at the Moscow Philharmonic Society; he and the group grew up steeped in the American Jazz tradition through the famous ‘Voice of America’ radio broadcasts. The Moscow Jazz Quintet consists of five saxophonists along with a rhythm section that play a variety of reed instruments such as Soprano Sax, Alto Sax, Baritone Sax, Tenor Sax, Clarinet, & Bass Clarinet, in a style that critics have described as highly refined Jazz music.

 

“…a captivating sound… it’s amazing”                  - The Washington Post

 

Long famous for their virtuosity in the classical arena, Soviet musicians have not exactly been at the forefront of the Jazz scene. However, if the Moscow Sax Quintet is any indication, there is good reason to believe they will secure their place in the world of Jazz. This record, The Moscow Sax Quintet: The Jazznost Tour (also available on CD), not only showcases a magnificent night of straight ahead Jazz music, but proves that music is the universal language by featuring the groundbreaking Soviet group’s mastery of the American art form. 

 

“… an amazing display of pure musicianship of the highest caliber… I couldn’t pull myself away… it’s non-stop and sweet, sweet jazz.… If you buy only one this year you simply must make it this one.”                                                                                               - David J Gibson, Saxophone Journal
