Eugene Maslov - "Where the Light Comes From"


Sign in to view read count
Jazz Pianist Eugene Maslov's CD Where the Light Comes From (Blue Canoe Records) is an imaginative endeavor which not only shows off Maslov's extraordinary talent as pianist but demonstrates his remarkable abilities as composer, arranger and producer as well.

Eugene Maslov has been an active touring and recording musician over the past decade. He has recorded and performed with Shirley Horn, Toots Thielman, Gary Burton, Eddie Gomez, Omar Hakim and Pearl Bailey--as well as many others. Maslov now brings his prolific experience and encyclopedic knowledge of jazz form and improvisation to a format with a balanced concept, astutely and poetically rendered within the tight chemistry of his backup musicians which include guest appearances by Hubert Laws (flute) and Vinnie Colaiuta (drums).

The strength and entertainment value of this effort lie in Maslov's unique musical ideas, deeply rooted in contemporary post-bop jazz. “The irony of Where the Light Comes from," says Maslov, “is that in my arrangements and compositions I am actually trying to touch upon the different shadows of the listener's feelings."

The recording displays a sense of timelessness with an eye bent on the future. Eugene's original compositions, as well as his arrangement of the Miles Davis classic “Nardis," demonstrate the true beauty and originality of this extraordinary jazz artist.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
