Konstantin Ionenko is a Ukrainian-based bassist & composer. He was born in Kharkiv, and got education at College of Music & University Of Arts (Conservatory). In 2003 moved to Kiev, where started playing with local jazz musicians in a variety of bands. At that time he travelled a lot, working in Europe & USA. Few years later Konstantin started working at Kiev Institute of Music, teaching bass & improvisation. He was also actively engaged in running workshops and jazz clinics. Apart from the academic career, he remained one of the most in-demand bass players in Ukrainian music business, being a constant member of the best jazz projects, sideman to popular artists & tv-shows, engaged in lots of touring and recording sessions. The year 2014 was very fruitful for Konstantin as a composer and band leader, since at that time two debut albums with original music composed by Konstantin were released. The first one - “Deep Immersion”, was recorded by Konstantin Ionenko Quintet, the second one was the CD named “Flow”, recorded by Konstantin’s co-leaded jazz quartet named Deep Tone project. Both of these albums were highly appreciated by various worldwide jazz critics and magazines, including “All About Jazz”, “New York Jazz Record”, to mention a few.

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.
