Greetings to everybody! I am a Russian singer and a bass-guitar player.
This video is made in one of the Russian restaurants where we once were asked to play some French songs in a sweet jazz manner. The fact is, we didn't prepare this programme, and this is not a constant band.
The three musicians who are playing here have been playing jazz music in the restaurants for all their life and it is not a problem for them to play any famous song existing in the world 'cos they just hear the tune, the harmony and know the melody.
It often happens so with jazz musicians that they don't rehearse, they play a bit of improvisation. I don't say that it's good that they don't have constant rehearsals, I just speak about the fact.
Our city is quite big, the population is about 1 million people but the situation is not very good with jazz. Not many musicians.
This restaurant is the only jazz club in the city. Live concerts are held every week.
Different groups play not only jazz but also some lounge and some light rock.
Now of course the situation with concerts is very difficult. Actually everything is closed and musicians are without work at all.
Many of them change jobs.
Hope one day it will change for better. But will it?
Enjoy the music! Sunny mood and inspiration to everyone!
