Maria TARASEVICH and Igor BUTMAN – Moondance 2007


Not intereseted about her Playboy Story…
she is a good singer.That is ALL.
The duet of Butman and Tarasevich very subtly and sensuously conveys a jazz mood. This alliance opens the depth and diversity of this music, usually complicated for the Russian mentality.
By Andrey Makarevich.
Mariya Tarasevich is one of the best Russian jazz singers, who became a soloist of the legendary Big Band of Anatoly Kroll. She took part in grand jazz festivals in Montreux and Paris, recordings for CDs of major Russian musicians and even a photo session for Playboy. Since 1990 Maria has been working with the big band of Igor Butman. The legendary musician helped Maria with her first solo jazz CD, which is claiming to be one of the most interesting albums of the year. The strong and clear voice of Tarasevich and a magic saxophone by Butman stay within the jazz standards with reasonable conservatism. The CD is complemented with keys by such noted musicians as Anton Baronin and Aleksey Bekker.
This is to some extent a protectionist project. Leading Russian musicians participated in the solo CD of Maria Tarasevich, a young and charming singer, who started in Big Band with Anatoly Kroll at the age of 19. The main “guardian” of the talented singer is of course Igor Butman, a ubiquitous Russian jazzmen, irreplaceable saxophone player at all beau-monde events. The first mutual project of Tarasevich and Butman is a selection of classical and old compositions of world jazz favorites. Masha performed even the legendary Besame Mucho, in a mysterious and soulful manner, as well as the beautiful melody by Johnny Mercer Autumn Leaves. Classic jazz melodies by Dizzy Gillespie, Koll Porter and George Gershwin were not left behind.
