I would like to present 11th video series sessions of Musical Conversations project.
The project was recorded during the pandemic time. I’m glad that this project was very successful and the result of this project came out of 3 different dimensions.
I released the CD and presented the CD at National Philharmonic Concert Hall in Lithuania and Blue Note, one of the great jazz venues in New York city.
During the recording session all the studio session was recorded video too, and on the end all tracks was mixed, mastered, and became 11th video studio sessions.
The idea of this project was to compose the music, and each musician could make his own choices to choose different ensemble set up and make his own ideas to write the music for this project.
On the end of this project came out the Book of all composed compositions including all the charts for the instruments.
Special thanks to all musicians who was involved to this project, David Kikoski – piano, fender Rhodes, B3 organ, Alex Sipiagin – trumpet & flugelhorn, Kestutis Vaiginis – soprano & tenor saxophones, bass clarinet, Andy Hunter – trombone, Boris Kozlov – bass, Donald Edwards – drums, Mettis String Quartet – Kostas Tumosa – violin, Bernardas Petrauskas – violin, Karolis Rudokas – viola, Rokas Vaitkevicius – cello.
