Biography

http://njazz.ru

A band from Moscow that plays contemporary jazz/jazzrock/fusion music.

“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 (now playing with Alexandr Ivanov 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)

    Great job! Really like it :) I think that You have same problems with recording (for example: in landscape where flute is to hard and loud) but composition is fine. I'd like to hear You live concert, especially we're neighbours :)- I'm from Poland.
