Solo Guitar Oleg Ivanov

Album Description

The first solo guitar album in history of Russian jazz was released Los Angeles, August 20, 2020. On August 20, Oleg Ivanov's debut album "The Art of Solo Guitar" was released. An album consisting of arrangements for jazz solo guitar and several classical pieces. Technically, the album is multifaceted and includes a wide palette of technically-expressive means. For instance, counterpoint, block chord solos, tapping, sparkling solos using pick solos and finger playing. Moreover, the album is full of an amazing melodic approach to improvisation. Oleg Ivanov took guitar improvisation to a new level by enriching it with a melodic approach and adapting it to the solo guitar style. It feels like two guitarists are talking to each other in different registers of the instrument. All compositions are listened to easily and not forcedly, which is a rarity for such a genre as a solo instrumental album. A few words from Oleg Ivanov about his album: ​ "The Art of Solo Guitar" is my dedication to this beautiful instrument. In addition, my desire to put this instrument on a new level. Music world which I did create on this CD using jazz standard and classical music, full of rich melodies. I am sure that this "The Art of Solo Guitar" will appeal to everyone. ​

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
