20:00 Vladimir Tarasov and Vladimir Chekasin
Vladimir Tarasov and Vladimir Chekasin, masters of Russian and international jazz scene, are going to give a concert at Sixteen Tons for the first time and for one night only. Vladimir Chekasin, a composer of the cult "Taxi Blues" movie (a laureate of the 1990 Cannes Film Festival), will perform with his long-time friend and laureate of the "Triumph" Award Vladimir Tarasov. Both are widely known since the 1970s for their participation in the Ganelin Trio, described by critic Chris Kelsey as "arguably the world's greatest free jazz ensemble" of the 1970s and '80s. Later on, they worked with other top Russian jazz musicians, artists, and directors. It might be wrong to limit the Chekasin-Tarasov duo to some genre rules because everything they do on stage has long gone beyond any musical patterns and conventions. Experimenters and innovators who had a great influence on the Russian jazz scene, teachers of many and many successful Russian musicians, they very rarely get together, especially in Moscow. The July 11 concert is going to surprise and delight the audience. The stock of the duo's ideas is inexhaustible, and the energy of recent 70th-anniversary jubilees will be enough for a dozen or two full-fledged bands and a couple more orchestras.
