OLEG KIREYEV AND VASIL HADŽIMANOV

The collaborative performance of worldly renowned musicians, a Russian tenor saxophonist Oleg Kireyev, and a pianist, Vasil Hadžimanov, accompanied by Predrag Milutinović on the drums, and Milan Pavković on the contrabass.

Oleg Kireyev lives and performs between Europe and New York. His discography includes fifteen odd albums of various genres of jazz music. Having undertaken many innovative and provocative international jazz projects in a performing career spanning three decades, The Express and Star says Kireyev is “a Russian sax player with a reputation for hard swing and high excitement”. “Incredibly good”, “Soft and enthusiastic” and “Stylish and top-notch” are all phrases music critics have written about his voice on saxophone. He has performed at the London Jazz Festival, the New York Jazz Improv Festival, and the Montreux Jazz Festival, to name a few. Legendary musician Bud Shank says: "Oleg's playing is a marvelous combination of styles, incorporating a whole lot of players. I hear echoes of the Protected content and John Coltrane combined with unstructured jazz."

Vasil Hadžimanov, a child from a famous Yugoslav family of musicians, began performing formally at the age of only 5. The worldly renowned musician graduated the piano at Berkeley, and began his musical career during his studies collaborating with other bands, such as the band “Sveti”, with Marko Đorđević and Bata Andonov, and touring the USA with Pascal Bokar’s afro-pop band. Like Kireyev, Hadžimanov also worked with the greatest names in music like David Gilmore and Chris Cheek.
