Moondance CD sounds really good. I’m glad that Igor Butman is so diversified in his music…that our country can be proud of such talented and bright jazz singers as Mariya Tarasevich.Yuri Bashmet
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.Andrey Makarevich
