Anna Filipieva, Jazz.Ru (Russia)


For 30 years the Soviet jazz pioneer, altoist Alexey Kozlov, was thinking over a project based on the poetry by nearly-forgotten Soviet poets from the 1930s, members of OBERIU (Association for Real Art,) the last Russian avant-garde poetry group before political purges destroyed all things avant-garde for the next three decades. In 2008, Kozlov finally found partners brave enough to walk a thin rope between jazz and poetry: the Second Approach Trio with their brilliant classical/jazz/ethno/improv crossover approach. Kozlov played the alto and recited the absurdist verses by OBERIU poets, while pianist Andrei Razin, bassist Igor Ivanushkin and singer Tatiana Komova surrounded the poems with their music, alternating between ironic readings of jazz standards and humorous/macabre free improv. One is not required to understand spoken Russian to catch the spakrling vibe of this live date, released ten years after for the Second Approach Trio’s 20th birthday.
