The fascinating expression of the saxophone, clinging to the first note ... at first it gently envelops its depth, and then masterfully leads the conquered listener behind him. This evening the saxophonist, composer and producer Mark Bernstein will open to Kiev the whole amazing world of New York jazz.
"Mixing my original compositions with the music of Coltrane, Hendrix, Ornett, Duke, Dylan, Scandinavian and ancient folk songs, I try to do what I call Good Music. It's just Good music played by Good people! "Mark Bernstein
Mark was born in Brooklyn in the family of Ukrainian and Polish migrants, which could not but affect the nature and manner of his game. The roots and traditions of ancestors plus the culture of America left their recognizable mark in its unique performance. Bernstein played and recorded as a leader band with such musical innovators as Tom Harrell, David Kikoski, Bob Moses, Mark Ducret, Anders Trenteller and Stefan Pasborg.
10 years, he shone on the stage of New York, then moved to Denmark and conquered Europe. To date, the infinitely creative and talented Mark Bernstein directs several successful groups at once (KIBRICK, Good People, Out Of The Blue, Radical ... but NOT ... Fanatical, Cameron / Bernstein and Our Colors). As a leader, he released ten albums. "Meet The Kibricks" received a wide rotation on the national Danish radio and was highly appreciated by The New York Times, who stated that this saxophonist deserved really serious attention.
This evening on the stage of the Mystetsky Arsenal together with the saxophone maestro there will be a famous Ukrainian pianist, producer, composer and arranger Alexei Bogolyubov and his trio. In addition to authoring jazz projects and participation in numerous festivals, Alex repeatedly collaborated with famous jazzmen, among them Joao Silva, Gregory Boyd, Roberto Garcia, Hernan Jay Rodriguez and Gerhard Ornig.
On the 26th of August we invite you to surrender to the power of the captivating saxophone and the union of talented jazzmen. The evening starts at 20:00.
