Igor Butman & the Moscow Jazz Orchestra

“Russia’s Number One Jazz Personality,” Leningrad-born Igor Butman studied alto saxophone with Gennedy Golstain at the Mussorgsky School of Music in the 1970s. While it’s hard to imagine an atmosphere less sympathetic to jazz than Soviet Russia, Butman’s passion for the music drove him to teach himself English in order to talk with American musicians playing in the Soviet Union. The Moscow Jazz Orchestra plays big-band jazz as though it never fell out of style during the rise of bebop.
