*In process of stocking. 2022 stock* A great, unprecedented show! Two of the most influential artists in Lithuania, Vladimir Chekasin and Vladimir Tarasov performed as a duet at the 8th OCT-LOFT Jazz Festival. Titled “La Grande Sonata”, it was absolutely a one-of-a-kind performance specially presented to the Chinese audience. As the former members of the legendary Ganelin Trio (GTCh), they shared the glorious years with Vyacheslav (Slava) Ganelin. Together they have nurtured the aesthetics of Soviet new jazz. The Trio was arguably the world's greatest free jazz ensemble. With this album and also the DVD, we are striving to restore that wonderful night - to witness history, and to draw the great spiritual power from their music.
