The audience will see performances by vocalist Liana Zainullina, saxophonists Andrei Bataleev and Ilya Lednev, guitarist Rodion Grishchenko, vocalist Denis Kuzmin, bassist Kasyan Lekus, drummer Omar Saidov and pianist Daniel Adiyants.

The Seven Note Collective and Ksenia Zhironkina, a participant of the VIII Future of Jazz Festival, will perform at the Igor Butman Jazz Club. The club will also host a jam session, during which this year’s participants will demonstrate their improvisational skills in a more informal setting.

“This project is truly unique: it is here that young musicians are creating the history of modern jazz. Over the years, the festival has presented to the Moscow public Oleg Akkuratov, Kate Davis, Francesco Kafiso, Evan Sherman, Mark Whitfield, A Boo, Russell Hall, Jake Labazzi, Julius Rodriguez, Philip Norris, Victoria Kaunova and many other young talented performers. This year we will present musicians from all over the country who have already taken their first confident steps on the Russian jazz scene: some of them perform in the All-Russian Youth Jazz Orchestra, some have their own youth and already very successful groups. For example, the team of Andrey Bataleev last year won the student showcase competition at our forum-fest Jazz Across Borders “, – said Igor Butman.
