Vadim Neselovskyi playing at P60.nl club (Amstelveen)New York -based jazz pianist Vadim Neselovskyi joined six-time Grammy winner Gary Burton’s Generation Quintet featuring Julian Lage, Luquest Curtis and James Williams in 2004, and has been working as Burton’s pianist and arranger for more than a decade, touring the United States, Europe and Japan. Vadim grew up in Odessa, Ukraine, where he was the youngest fifteen-years old student to be accepted into Odessa Conservatory. When he was 17 years old, he moved to Dortmund. Shortly after arriving in Germany, Neselovskyi established himself on the local jazz scene, taking part in the Dusseldorf Jazz Rally and Leipzig Jazz Days. Now days Vadim and his Trio are performing at the most prestigious world Jazz Scenes including famous Blue Note in New York, Cotton Club in Japan, Jazzahead European Jazz Conference, Alfa Jazz Festival, and many others. From the September 2017 Downbeat 4,5 star-review of his album "Get Up And Go", written by Bob Doerschuk : "...I’m not even done listening to this album ... yet already I’m giving Get Up And Go the stellar rating it deserves. Neselovskyi is a rare artist even at this early, post-Berklee stage of his career: technically assured as both pianist and composer and, more important, already in possession of a distinctive vision. ... last moments confirm what the earliest ones suggested: Get Up And Go is a marvel." * With special Guest Maya Fridman (Amsterdam, cello) Composition "Last Snow"from the CD "Last Snow" of Vadim Neselovskyi and Arkady Shilkloper (Art Beat 2013)
Shalosh Jazz Band (Israel) at Jazz@ILShalosh has been turning heads of audiences internationally since the release of their debut album “The Bell Garden”. Despite the classic Jazz trio format of piano, bass and drums, and the band members' deep root in Jazz and improvised music, Shalosh's music takes its own path across and between genres like Rock, Classical, Electronic, African and Middle Eastern music. The members of Shalosh have a connection not only through music, but also lifelong friendships. After years of working separately and internationally both as side-men as well as band leaders, the three reunited this year to form a band with its own tight-knit style of their own. From review by Mike Collins at Ronnie Scott’s International Piano Trio Festival, 2016: "...The contrasting first set from Shalosh showed why the trio of Israeli musicians have been catching the eye and ears of promoters. Interlocking rhythms and chiming melodies, alternated with the most delicate of rippling arpeggios and singing melodies . Three-way interaction built to roaring climaxes as they darted between thunderous rocky vamps and relaxed funky grooves. ..." Music from the Shalosh's CD "The Bell Garden". Leaving Maine, written by Shalosh

Leo Bouwmeester TrioDutch Trio Tuneswap with Leo Bouwmeester on piano, Alex Coke on tenor saxophone and flute, and Eric Heijnsdijk on a bass. From the review of the recent Leo's CD "View Lines" : "...This is not the jazz of the theatrical grand gestures, or the conceited ego, this is music of beautiful developments, swinging with care and refinement but concise...."
