"From Kyiv to San Francisco" may well be the subtitle for this album featuring Ukrainian Elena Martynova as lead vocalist.
Produced by Swiss Smooth Jazz guitarist Fabio Mignola, it also casts the appearance
of German based Konstantin Klashtorni (Kool&Klean, Groove Jazz N Chill)
and US Rock Hendricks (Diana Ross, Jackson 5, Marvin Gaye, Michael Bublé, Paul Hardcastle),
both on the saxophone.
Completely realized online without the musicians ever meeting, it contains two-hand compositions
by Martynova and Mignola, who also took care of the mixing and mastering in his own studio.
The music style ranges from acid jazz to bossa nova in a variety of musical colours and tones
which will entrance the listeners with Elena's smooth vocals and dreamy lyrics.
