Tom Harrell- Oleg Kireyev- Keith Javors Short Info

Tom Harrell

Praised by Newsweek for his pure melodic genius, Tom Harrell is widely recognized as one of the most creative and dynamic jazz instrumentalists and composers of our time. While Harrell is a master of the jazz idiom, he constantly seeks new challenges and influences. Even with a discography of over 260 recordings and a career that spans more than four decades, Harrell has managed to stay fresh and current as he continues to actively record and tour around the world. He is a frequent winner in Down Beat and Jazz Times magazines' Critics and Readers Polls and a Grammy nominee.

"A supreme trumpet/flugelhorn player, Tom Harrell has an endless flow of bubbling, intricate ideas conveyed with an almost serene delivery. His equal ability as a formidable post-bop composer remains in full flower on this melodic, sharply conceived music. From dangerous tear-ups (Storm Approaching) to near abstract (Study in Sound) to conventional balladry (Roman Nights), Harrell is a master." -Mojo Magazine
A graduate of Stanford University with a degree in music composition, Harrell is a prolific composer and arranger. Carlos Santana, Cold Blood, Azteca, Vince Guaraldi, Hank Jones, Kenny Barron, the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra, Danish Radio Big Band, WDR Big Band, Brussels Jazz Orchestra, Metropole Orchestra and Arturo O'Farrill & the Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra are among the many who have recorded or performed his work. Harrell's composition and arrangement, "Humility," was recorded for the latter's 2008 release, which just won a Grammy for the Best Latin Jazz Album.

Oleg Kireyev

Oleg Kireyev is an internationally recognized musician, frequently on tour and playing to appreciative audiences in Europe and the U.S. The Express and Star, UK, says Kireyev is “a Russian sax player with a reputation for hard swing and high excitement.” Oleg has participated in many innovative and provocative international jazz projects in a recording/ performing career spanning three decades. His creative ideas are vast, from mainstream and ethno to jazz rock and world music. “Incredibly good” “soft & enthusiastic” and “stylish and top notch” — are phrases music critics write about the voice of his saxophone. He has performed at the London Jazz Festival, the New York Jazz Improv Festival and the Montreux Jazz Festival, to name a few. As musician Bud Shank says: "Oleg's playing is a marvelous combination of styles, incorporating a whole lot of players. I hear echoes of the 1920’s and John Coltrane combined with unstructured jazz."

George Cables, Sean Jones, Eddie Henderson, James Weidman, Terell Stafford, Adam Nussbaum and many others are among the ones Oleg has been performing throughout his outstanding career as an innovative and creative musician.

Oleg performed at: Symphony Space (NYC), Iridium Jazz Club (NYC), Yoshi's (CA), Smoke (NYC), Smalls (NYC), Chris Jazz Cafe (PA), Blues Alley (Washington, D.C.), etc.
