Majamisty

The Majamisty TriO’s music synthesizes classical and jazz elements, and judging by audience reaction it’s a refreshing addition to the jazz music scene. The cooperation of pianist Maja Alvanović, leader of the trio, with the fantastic musicianship of Ištvan Čik (drums and percussion), Ervin Malina, (double bass) and Aleksandra Drobac Čik (guest vocalist) gives wings to this idea and brings it to full fruition. The appierence of Majamisty TriO in 2010 was followed by concerts in Studio ‘1’ of Radio Novi Sad within ‘Jazz Appreciation Month’ organized by the American Corner, also the 26th Jazz Festival in Valjevo and IX International Jazz & Blues festival Geza Balaz Gari in Kikinda, as well as several clubs in Novi Sad. Their first album ‘Mistyland’ with twelve tracks (eleven originals and the cover of jazz standard ‘Misty’ by Errol Garner) invites lovers of new jazz sound in the walk through the wideness of Mistyland, imaginary world of acoustic paintings.

“High emotional charge and luxurious beauty have been submerged into flat- landed Pannonian Valley, indirectly displaying that in her concept of jazz Maja is on the right track successfully following the tradition of the world piano giants Bill Evans, Lennie Tristano and Bernard Pffeifer, and from domestic keyboard players of recently gone Miloš Petrović, especially his early jazz phase...” - Slobodan - Bobby - Arandjelović (Belgrade Jazz Publicist)
