Two magicians of the strings, two remarkable careers: The young Ukrainian, who chose Cologne as his home base, was not only a sideman for Dee Dee Bridgewater, but additionally a proud prizewinner of several international guitar competitions. The Bonn-based professor Frank Haunschild is, for his part, a successful composer, author and duo partner for a diversity of artists.
This time, the “Jazz guitar teacher of the nation” joins the shooting star of the jazz guitar scene, Vitaliy Zolotov. Together, these two dexterous intellectuals demonstrate their love of the genre with an instrumental album that taps into a fascinating selection of acoustical and electrical instruments to reveal all the facets of sophisticated guitar music. With stylish own compositions and attractive Beatles interpretations, this congenial duo demonstrates their exhilaration at playing, a subtle sense of dynamics and almost intuitive interaction. This makes “Night Train” a genuine masterpiece of modern guitar jazz. Two magicians of the strings, two remarkable careers – now on a single album.
