The name of Konstantin Klashtorni has already received excellent reviews from critics in the smooth jazz genre. Both his debut and his second album were critically acclaimed by radio programmers in the United States, Canada, and Europe. Kostantin is maturing very quickly as a producer and writer, while his already strong skills as a saxophone player are continuing to improve and diversify. "Smoothing" is an attractive collection of commercial smooth jazz, where all sides of this type of music are presented in the best possible way. Keep an eye on Konstantin's music in the near future as well, since it is quickly becoming a standard to write and play by in the smooth jazz format. _______________________________________ Musicians: Konstantin - saxophones,flute,keys,programming Adir Kochavi - trumpet&flugel Yerman Aponte - bass guitar 'Gibi' Hubert Lourens - drums Alex Yarosh - guitars Arienne Groenewoud - backing vocals Ivo Stuivenberg - backing vocals ________________________________________ Some previous reviews: I'm very lucky - this treasure dropped into my mailbox and I had no idea what to expect. You need to go no further than Konstantin's website to find out about the man and his music and buy this CD. I've run out of superlatives to use about this album. I don't believe it - you won't believe it - you have to hear it. -Chris Mann - Smooth-Jazz.de- Listening to this CD (Downtown) still gives me goose bumps. I get such an awesome feeling listening to all the tracks. He's bound for greatness on this side of the Atlantic. -Mike James - Smoothjazzandmore.com-.
