Andriy Tykhonov’s piano lead is inspired by two decades of performances both in the Ukraine, where he is recognized as one of the country’s leading jazz pianists, to southern Ontario where he has commanded concert halls in Toronto and across Waterloo region.
Andriy has performed with artists such as Dave Young (bass) and Reg Schwager (guitar). His performing genres include swing, bossa nova, samba, ballad, movie themes, ragtime, rock, blues, country and Russian and Ukrainian folk music.
Andriy’s improvisation is inspired, adding depth to each tune without ever loosing the color and intent of its genre as witnessed by a truly beautiful performance of A Wonderful World as performed by the quartet.
His compositions have brought to life elements from stride piano through to swing, and will be available in the following CD collection:
• June 2008, One More Time (Kitchener, ON)
• December 2004, Live in Manhattans (Manhattan’s, Guelph, ON).
• January 2003, Live from the Floor (KWCMS, Waterloo, ON).
• June 2002, Andriy Tykhonov (Kiev, Ukraine).
