The combination of classical string musicians with saxophone and jazz creates an explicit and clear way to connect classical jazz to the sensitive touch of classical chamber music as well as to the dance rhythms of Middle Eastern music. Sendersky played with many classical musicians before finding the right balance with a musical group that perfectly fits his jazz compositions. The string quintet together with boundless imagination and improvisation allows creativity to flourish with a music display of a wide range of colors, from Middle Eastern folk and Klezmer music to modern jazz and rock. “I believe music is a gift,” Sendersky says, “and I follow the inspiration and play the music as I feel it.”
From eastern lilt to western swing; all perfectly packaged in this remarkable album. Saxophonist Lenny Sendersky, originally from St. Petersburg, lived in Scandinavia for several years and now (since 2011) lives, composes, arranges, produces and performs in Israel. His music stems from experience, from travel, from thought, from passion, from a clearly deep-rooted wish to promote a coming together; a social, a geographical and a musical mix.
The styles on the album range from Middle Eastern folk and Klezmer to modern jazz and rock. It’s a delightful blend played with the utmost sincerity by a line up consisting of, ‘Moon Strings’ – Artur Adamyan (violin), Andrei Rukhadze (violin), Shamil Saidov (viola) and Nikolai Solonovich (bass). On three tracks we are treated to the French horn player, the internationally renowned virtuoso, Arkady Shilkloper, his solo on Blues In Palace is jubilant! On other tracks, the fabulous Oshy Daban guests on vocals and maestro Ehud Ettun solos on bass.
“...индивидуальность исполнения не подавляет, не ошеломляет слушателя, а предлагает ему увлекательный, умный и уютный мир звуковых образов, который не собран из кусочков, как пазл-головоломка, но продуман и изложен музыкальными средствами очень знающим артистом, широкий творческий кругозор которого вполне сопоставим с обширностью его исполнительского арсенала” - Cyril Moshkow
