Boris Netsvetaev Boris Netsvetaev

Boris Net (real name – Boris Netsvetaev) is a jazz musician, composer, pianist and keyboarder. He was born in St. Petersburg, Russia, where he studied music theory/composition at the Rhymsky-Korsakov music college, but later moved to Germany in the age of 18, to continue his jazz studies at the Music and Theatre University of Hamburg. Boris Net studied with Dieter Glawischnig (piano, arrangement), Wolfgang Schlüter and Lucas Lindholm (ensemble), he also participated an International Jazz Workshop at Banff (Canada) in 1999 where he studied with Joe Lovano, Dave Holland, Ken Werner, Dave Douglas, Hugh Fraser and Ari Hoenig. The first notable step in his career was the collaboration with the US drummer veteran Steve Reid, which started in 2000 and continued until Steve´s death in 2010. Boris was a member of several groups led by Steve, including his acoustic trio (CD´s „Waves“ and „Invitation“ CPR Records), his quartet and a recent „Steve Reid Ensemble“ featuring a brilliant electronic musician Kieran Hebden (aka Four Tet). With the Steve Reid Ensemble Boris has recorded 2 CD/LPs, „Spirit Walk“ in London (Souljazz, 2005) and „Daxaar“ (Domino, 2007/08), this recording was made in Dakar, Senegal and it features some of the local african musicians, „Daxaar“ was well received by both, critics and listeners, this recording has sold over 7000 copies in the US. The Steve Reid Ensemble has performed on the diverse international jazz festivals, it was touring the UK twice (the first time along the famous BBC DJ Gilles Peterson), Spain and other countries. The Steve Reid Ensemble has made it´s last recording in 2009 in New York, where the band was touring. Unfortunately this one still remains unreleased due to sudden death of Steve Reid. Another important partner and friend in Boris Netsvetaev´s life was the German vibraphone legend Wolfgang Schlüter, who passed away in November 2018. With him Boris has recorded 4 albums, including a quartet and a duo-record, one with the NDR Big Band and the last one, that has been released after Wolfgang Schlüter´s death features Wolfgangs last quartet and a 12-pieces string orchestra.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
