New ‘The Dinner Party’ CD

The Dinner Party, comprised of Anglo-Russian pianist Vladimir Miller (Moscow Composers Orchestra), Italian double-bassist Pierpaolo Martino –  a founding member of avant-jazz ensembles Mondegreen, Howl and Machine3 – and British saxophonist Adrian Northover – known for The Remote Viewers and London Improvisers Orchestra – have released their new CD Wednesday Afternoon.

“The Dinner Party is somewhat a-typical for a free jazz and pure improvisation trio, because they make very melodic and sometimes almost meditative music in which silences and soft passages are essential. This produces exciting and sometimes breathtakingly beautiful music, which regularly reminds you of film music, in the sense that the music subtly evokes images… Nice nice.” Moors Magazine https://www.moorsmagazine.com/muziek/jazz-blues/the-dinner-party-wednesday-afernoon/

New Modest Trio CD ‘Pictures at an Exhibition’

pictures_800

Vladimir’s new CD ‘Pictures at an Exhibition’ is available now on ASC Records.

Performed by the ‘Modest Trio’ of Vladimir on piano, Joe Williamson on double bass and Arkady Gotesman on drums, the album features Vladimir’s arrangements of Mussorgsky‘s 10-part suite.

“This particular interpretation of mine and the trios commits itself to improvisational extrapolation, where each section of the suite is treated as way in to collective simultaneous exploration. The suite has such colour, richness and depth in its harmonic language that I felt it would lend itself to a free and sustained jazz orientated approach. Recorded in St. Cyprian’s church, Bakerloo, London, we wanted the sound to resonate with the echo and ambiance that may be heard if this music were to be played in an exhibition hall. Thus, with the wonderful, musical, flowing flexibility and ingenuity of Joe on double bass and Arkady on drums and percussion, this recording was made possible.”
