Review by Dmitriy Savitskiy on Albert Maksimov`s CD “Not Only Jazz”

What disease can the epidemiologist get infected with? In principle, he is not supposed to, at least with the diseases known to him. However, he can cheat and once and forever get sick with something incurable, for instance, with the passion for jazz. In this sense the former epidemiologist, Albert Maksimov, suffered total defeat! The diagnosis: jazz forever! The method of survival • playing the Harmonica.

His grandmother was the student of Gustav Neuhaus, mother • piano instructor in the school of arts. At the age of early mustaches Albert Maksimov, as he claims himself, was suddenly het up about playing the guitar. In 1979 he created one of the first rock bands appearing at that time on the territory of the former USSR under the name “Master”. Naturally, he composed the music and wrote the lyrics by himself. In their turn, the Kyiv authorities applied a healthy preventive approach toward him: to chill out his love to the “vicious” rhythms he was drafted to the army. It did not help though....

„...It`s a nice mixture of mainstream jazz and some more modern music “

“HARMONICA WORLD” Feb/March 2007

“...The CD “Not Only Jazz” recorded by Albert Maksimov with the friends, in the first instance fills our grateful ears with the vibrant enthusiasm of the man who once and for all got contaminated by the music and jazz in particular. This should be kept in mind: the CD itself hardly needs any comments, all is ok with it; it rather must be listened to! And if your body suddenly responds to it by the rhythmic excitement or unexpected pulsation, it means that the former epidemiologist has successfully contaminated you by this wonderful and incurable disease - jazz.”

Dmitriy Savitskiy, “Radio Liberty” “49 minutes of Jazz” Paris

”...Das mit den Freunden von Albert Maksimov aufgenommene CD „Not Only Jazz“ befüllt vor allem unsere dankbare Ohren mit dem vibrierenden Fanatismus des Menschen, der ein und für allemal an Musik, und zwar an Jazz krank wurde. Man muss daran denken. Es lohnt sich kaum das CD selbst zu kommentieren. Mit ihm ist alles einfach, man muss es hören! Und wenn ihr Organismus plötzlich mit rhytmischen Erbeben oder mit unerwarteten Pulsierung antwortet. das heisst, dass der Arzt-Epidemiologe auch sie erfolgreich mit dieser wunderschönen und unheulbaren Krankheit angesteckt hat • mit Jazz.”

Dmitriy Savitskiy, Paris Radio „Freiheit“ “49 Minuten von Jazz”

”...Le disque, inscrit avec les amis d’Albert Maksimov, «Not Only Jazz», avant tout remplit nos oreilles reconnaissantes du fanatisme vibrant de la personne, la fois et pour toujours tombé malade par la musique, et le jazz en particulier. Il faut se rappeler cela. Improbablement le disque même coûte commenter. Avec lui tout est simple, il faut l'écouter! Mais si votre organisme soudain répondra par le frémisement rythmique ou la pulsation inattendue, signifie le médecin - épidémiologue, vous a contaminé avec succès par cette maladie admirable et incurable - le jazz.”

Dmitriy Savitskiy, Paris , Radio “Liberté” «49 minutes du jazz»
