2013 Recap - Analog Attention
This one came our way and we had to jump in. A fresh set of jazz musicians from Moscow Russia with a host of diverse musical influences, Analog Attention is the creative vessel for Max Shcherbakov from the Moscow College of Improvisational Music. Who knew there was a thriving jazz scene in Moscow? We're looking forward to more from these cats in the years to come. Dig in right here and share the experience.
What the critic said
"It’s jazz, but jazz [with a] strong influence of electronic music in terms of sound and club culture…. Youth clubs, their atmosphere like this, reflects the nerve and the rhythm of today’s large cities - probably the perfect place for this music. Electronic effects, the sound of electronic instruments, hard, sharp, and sometimes pure funk, sometimes willfully choppy rhythm - is the basis of almost all the album’s tracks. Basis - but not all of the content. Horn section group represented by saxophonist Alexey Mineeva and trumpeter Michael Brucheeva firmly links the sound on the whole, with jazz. Very stylish and quite modern summarizes the album as a whole. - Jazz Quadrat (in Russian, translated by Google)
