Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Grammy® nominee Eldar Djangirov called astonishing by Billboard debuts on Motéma with his eighth release, and first trio project since 2009.

With high-intensity precision balanced by a touching sensitivity, Eldar Djangirov, Armando Gola, and Ludwig Afonso soar in breathtaking glory through a rock and classically-tinged jazz set that ranges from Radiohead to Gershwin. Features guest turns by Joe Locke & Chris Potter.

Review

He s a genius beyond most young people I ve heard. --Dave Brubeck (New York Times)

His command of the instrument is beyond staggering. --Bob Doershuk, DOWNBEAT

A blend of musical intelligence, organizational savvy, enthusiasm, and prowess that was all the more impressive for seeming so casual ... an ebullient impressionist. --New York Times

Right after spending seven proud years with Sony Classical’s jazz department,
the versatile and always confident Eldar Djangirov have decided to switch over to
the Motema production label, not only to resume his successful recording career,
but to further enhance his colourful artistry a step further and to finally get greater
production involvement beginning with this album. Recorded live in the recording
studio and released to absolute acclaim in 2013, Breakthrough exudes the world
class artistry, composition brilliance, high voltage swing and solid interplay as his
trio pushes the envelope in piano jazz performing, as he serves up an electrifying
combination of ‘new’ original compositions and classy takes on classic standards.
Starting off on a high mark with the new original classic Point Of View Redux, the
kaleidoscopic track set has plenty for everyone that consist of takes on standards
like Somebody Loves Me, Irving Berlin’s What’ll I Do, Radiohead’s Morning Bell,
Bill Evans’ No Moon At All as well as captivating original compositions such as In
Pursuit, Tokyo Pulse and the title track. With cameo appearances by multi-reeds
giant Chris Potter (on the impressively layered title track) and vibraphone master
Joe Locke (on the dizzying Blink), Breakthrough is a bonafide masterpiece which
highlights Eldar’s impressive piano stylings and robust composing skills whom he
handles with true expectation and swinging vitality as the thundering solos brings
down the house with titanium force. This timeless labour of love is an electrifying
fun filled blast that will certainly be hailed as one of his celebrated achievements.

Great pianist, great music! Amazing! His classical training is evident with fantastic results. I would compare him to Michel Camilo and Arturo Sandoval for the technical prowess and great interpretations. Strongly recommended.

I have another of Eldar's CD's on a different record label -- Breakthrough is on the Motema record label. The music is great, but the CD was produced badly: I now own four copies of the CD, and each one has the same defect, which causes the CD to skip wildly in the middle of the sixth track, "In Pursuit." Each time I requested a replacement disc, either the original seller or the record label itself was willing to re-send a new copy of the disc. After the fourth go-round, I gave up.

As for the music, it's fun, lively, energetic -- everything good jazz is. I think Eldar is working with a new bass player and a new drummer, and they're both extremely gifted. If only the CD didn't skip. When I play it now, I have to program around the 6th song. I hope the people at Motema get their equipment working better for other releases.

Eldar is an extremely gifted musician. It is really thrilling to listen to a young man who will grow into one of the finest musicians the world of jazz has ever seen.
