Friday, Sept 28 – Andriy Tykhonov Quartet: Russian Roulette

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’s performing genres include swing, bossa nova, samba, ballad, movie themes, ragtime, rock, blues, country and Russian and Ukrainian folk music. This diversity lends inspiration to his improvisation, adding depth to each tune without ever losing the color and intent of its genre. Witness this truly beautiful performance of A Wonderful World as well as the saucy Jazz Room performance of My Heart Belongs to Daddy.

Russian Roulette features two Russian piano players – which will be the last one standing?

  • Andriy Tykhonov and Mark Meitine – keys
  • Clark Johnston – double bass
  • Sean Habermehl – drums
  • Robin Habermehl – saxophone
