Remarkable Russian guitarist Alexei Kuznetsov! If you think you didn’t hear he plays, ‘ you’re mistaken, I’ve heard even if you do not go to concerts. His guitar leads the theme in the movie “Seventeen moments of spring”, his guitar sounds in “Mimino”…
We asked the famous Igor Butman.
Igor BUTMAN, saxophone. Alex is an outstanding master. Humble, happy and giving happiness. Impeccable taste, great technique, amazing drive, peculiar only to him the manner of extracting the sound… His guitar sound in so many soundtracks that all of not remember to mention. But as soon as you hear — you learn accurately: plays Kuznetsov, Kuznetsov’s interpretation. And the more he listened, the more confidence that he is getting better. A generous person. Helps everyone, takes young, opens the way for them. Alex is one of those whom I respect. A rarity.
We asked the famous Daniel Kramer.
Daniel KRAMER, piano. Alexei Kuznetsov — a symbol of Russian jazz in the second half of the twentieth century. Unique guitarist, amazing person. Glad he played many concerts. He’s one of my teachers. Gently, tenderly, with a smile, gently told: “Why are you playing arcade, it would be necessary more space.” From him I learned to play the melody in jazz. He is an outstanding melodist. Most of the time Alex spends enlightenment and also gently, without passion is showing people the beauty of music. Our country should be grateful to the amazing musician.
A day or rather the night of their anniversary, Alex Kuznetsov gives a concert in a jazz club Alexei Kozlov. Who will take the stage to play with him — kept secret. But definitely: it’s a band, listen to them happiness.
