V/A In memoriam Nesterov

[ ns59 / mp3 ]

This release is an extract from contemporary jazz and experimental music marathon dedicated to memory of Ukrainian improviser Oleksandr Nestrerov (1954 – 2005) curate by Alla Zagaykevych.

Oleksandr Nesterov was likely the most famous representative of Ukrainian jazz underground and modern improvisational music. He performed on bass-guitar, MIDI-guitar, grand piano, vibraphone, percussion, bassoon and contrabass. Oleksandr began his career as a bass-guitarist. He performed in a jazz-rock group “Videojazz”, popular in the USSR (1985-1988). In the beginning of 1990s Oleksandr changed his attitude to music and began a new creative stage. Improvisation became the main theme of his creative work. The first step towards this innovation was Aleksandr’s participation in a music quintet with Genadiy Ivchenko, Emil’ Sokolov (saxophones), Sergiy Shvirst (drums) and Sergiy Khmelyov (vibraphone). He was a leader of “The Modern Music Group” (1988) which united Petro Tovstukha (piano), Yuriy Yaremchuk (saxophones), Iryna Finish (violoncello) and Myhaylo Antonovych. Oleksandr collaborated with Kyiv “Theatre of drama and comedy” (1989) and participated in a Ukraine-France jazz festival “Dniprogastrol” (1991) which resulted in interesting acquaintance with the performers of the “ARFI” association from Lion, France. Also he was a participant of jazz festivals and forums devoted to modern music in Ukraine and abroad. Since 1995 Aleksandr has been mostly working with solo projects and creating musical explications of old movies. He collaborates with a folklore ensemble “Drevo”, Sergiy Khmelyov and Yuriy Yaremchuk. They were exactly the ones whom Aleksands created one of his best works with – the program named “Contaminated Sounds” devoted to the Chornobyl tragedy (2001).
