Europe Jazz Media Chart, November 2016

One of the earliest initiatives of EJM is the Europe Jazz Media Chart: a non-sales-related chart that reveals some of the hot new music surfacing across the globe right now. Some contributors also add their comments, explaining their choice.

Anna Filipieva, Jazz.Ru (Russia):

Art Ensemble Of Arkhangelsk feat Tim Dorofeev & Anatoly Vapirov «Live at Varna Summer 2016» (ArtBeat Music)

Anna Filipieva’s notes:
«This live recording was made during the concert set that the Soviet New Jazz legend, saxophonost Anatoly Vapirov, played with Art Ensemble from Arkhangelsk, Russia, led by guitarist Tim Dorofeyev, at the Varna Summer Jazz Festival in Bulgaria, which Vapirov was producing for more than two decades. The sound leaves much to be desired, as it happens with many live recordings, bt the music that was performed that night seemed very appealing to me.»
