Biography

“Pianist/composer Yelena Eckemoff works in that rarified area between modern classical chamber music and progressive jazz. Born and raised in Russia, Eckemoff attended the Moscow State Conservatory, where she studied concert piano and grew up in a strong classical foundation. She came to the United States before the collapse of the Soviet Union [in 1991], and continues to compose and ... Read more in Amazon's Yelena Eckemoff Store

Editorial Reviews

Review

If Eckemoff demonstrates anything, it lies in her artistry as an inquisitive, slow-paced, and free-of-sentimentality pianist able to express special emotional qualities. --Frank-John Hadley, Downbeat

Yelena Eckemoff is a virtuoso talent. There is a striking contrast of dynamic fusion of the more European classical with western improvisation. The truly captivating aspect of Forget Me Not is that no one influence is predominant over another. Eckemoff's chameleon like ability to change sonic colors and textures; most at will, make this release an artistic triumph. --Brent Black, Critical Jazz

Eckemoff s compositions offer a journey of introspection, exploration and emotional intelligence. One cannot help but be profoundly moved by hearing her approach and ideas. Though classically influenced in nature, each composition is entrenched in the modern jazz idiom. With a vast discography, that includes some of the leading figures in jazz today, Eckemoff has clearly established herself as a top ranking composer. The question is no longer whether she can be considered in the ranks of top composers; it is now how far her musical journey will take her. --H. Allen Williams, Jazz Times, 06/09/12

Readers of between sound and space will, I hope, be familiar with Yelena Eckemoff (link), who has been skirting the ECM fringe for some time now in her working relationships with such artists as Peter Erskine and, most recently, Marilyn Mazur. The latter provides a crisp and delectable palette to the Russian-born pianist's latest effort, FORGET-me-NOT, which also features Tord Gustavsen recruit Mats Eilertsen on bass. From the breathy clusters of "Resurrection of a Dream" it is clear that Eckemoff has written yet another distinct chapter in the storybook moods of her compositional development. Against a backdrop of twittering percussion and arco haunts she carries us through this slick opener with equal parts style and fortitude, riffing on the ether with her most unbound pianism yet. Mazur is splendid on cymbals amid a bevy of colorful kin, Eilertsen firm yet sensitive, soloing as if in memory of the lullaby that brought us here. Thus set, the album's tone moves in shades through the child-like wonders of the title track to its densest dramas in "Welcome a New Day." Along the way Eckemoff treats us to not a few surprises, of which the crumbling edifice of "Maybe" paints perhaps the most intriguing. The punctilious "Sand-Glass" further hones the set's serrations and leaves us prepared to dissect the delightful little groove that is "Five" (in both title and number). Eckemoff's classical roots come to the fore in "Schubert's Code." Making its timid entrance onto a stage draped with patterns of the nineteenth century, it nevertheless sparkles with clear and present reflections and showcases a real feel for detail. "Quasi Sonata," on the other hand, rolls out the retro on a smaller scale and feels most like fleeting reminiscence.Read more ›

Article first published as Music Review on Blogcritics - After three album releases in 2010 featuring piano, bass and drums, Yelena Eckemoff's 2011 project FORGET-me-NOT continues to explore the virtuosity that we've come to expect from the innovative jazz pianist who was born and raised in Moscow, Russia. Trained at the Moscow Conservatory, Eckemoff has expertise in classical music, jazz, experimental jazz-rock, and composition for various instruments and voice. Yelena has been composing since age five, and her album releases number about 20. Now making her home on a North Carolina pine tree farm, she also enjoys painting, photography and gardening. As her motto, "Striving to create the finest musical experience" is only one element embodied in her love of life.

With its ten original tracks (most spanning from 5-9 minutes apiece), FORGET-me-NOT provides beautifully minimalist moments, as well as passages full of mystique and intrigue. Recorded over the course of two days in Denmark, the thoughtful, delicate, and intimate compositions are meant for easy listening and reflective contemplation. The skillful trio (pianist Yelena Eckemoff, bassist Mats Eilertsen, percussionist Marilyn Mazur) presents the music in such a way that the boundaries between structure and improvisation are seamless. The disc runs 72 minutes from "Resurrection of a Dream" to the closing "Welcome a New Day." "Five" appears at track #5, and I only hope it's not bad luck to put the piece entitled "Seven" at track #8. "Sand-Glass" delivers its impressions with coherence and content. "Trapped in Time" could easily be an emblematic theme for this introspective music that exudes relaxed sophistication.

I just ordered Yelena's new disc "Forget-me-not" with much anticipation. Her artistry is breathtaking! I have all of her other work and it is at once mesmerizing, inspired, and delightful!
