But Odyssey would not be himself if he'd stuck with the same musical setting throughout his creative career. Mixing the rich heritage of the great Russian classical music tradition and strong jazz improvisation skills, Bogussevich creates an unique blend where strings swing pretty hard, in spite of the soft nature of their sound attack, and piano switches naturally from fugue progressions to elaborate long improvisational lines and back. Released by Russia's oldest record label, Melodiya, this album could be described as an effective effort to mutually enrich both classical and jazz traditions of the cross-cultural, multinational melting pot of Russian and - speaking more wide - European and world music cultures.
