Vadim Neselovskyi

”More than just a strong pianist, Neselovskyi is a composer who blends form and freedom in new ways. His two compositions resemble mini-suites... taut arrangements that nevertheless provide a challenging foundation for improvisation. He also has a keen ear for reharmonization; his lightly swinging arrangement of “My Romance” is completely fresh. The changes beneath the familiar melody retain the lyricism of the original but ultimately go in a completely different direction.”

John Kelman, AllAboutJazz

“Neselovskyi's a remarkable pianist: Ukrainian-born, raised partly in Germany, at home with blues, funk, and Latin, with an extra Middle European dimension. It's like John Lewis' classical one, but with Slavic and Romantic harmonic and rhythmic extension and the rest further extending the band's palette.”

Robert R. Calder, AllAboutJazz

“...his solos are passionate and brilliantly improvised. And through his background of classical training, he has developed exceptional composition skills. Beautifully constructed to showcase Burton’s talents, ‘Prelude for Vibes’ is a great opening track, whilst ‘Get Up and Go’ demonstrates the pianist’s harmonic knowledge.”

Robert Gibson, MusicWebInternational

“Pianist Vadim Neselovskyi is a player and composer and equally adept at both sides of the talent.”
