Ira & Igor
This 52-minute CD features Ira Schulman on flutes, tenor saxophone, clarinet, and Igor on guitar, collectively known as new reincarnation of Ogogo. Igor's tone is reminiscent of that big late 50s guitar sound, fused with an edge that comes from surviving tha assault of the 60s. However, Igor's tone is only the background for writing style that forces the listener's spirit to fly beyound the restrains of our daily limitations and boundaries. On the sheer power of his own strength, Igor has survived against great odds to keep an artistic vision filled with sense of purpose, heart, and imagination. Ira Schulman has been a powerful force for few decades in keeping jazz idiom alive and in the front of many listeners' consciousness. A veteran of number of recording projects, Ira strikes to continually develop an art form and refuses to repeat himself.
