Todd Herbert, a brilliant saxophone player, goes on tours all over the world. His performances are highly appreciated in the USA, Germany, Japan and Great Britain.

Now he is a member of the sextet of Ray “Killer” Appleton, a legendary drummer, with whom he also recorded an album in 2011. Herbert has also cooperated with such famous musicians as Jimmy Cob and Tom Harrell.
Ilya Lushtak was born in Saint Petersburg and moved to San-Francisco with his parents, when he was three. There his career of a jazz musician began. Later Ilya moved to New York, where he became a frequenter of jazz performances. On September 2003 Ilya started his cooperation with Frank Wess, a legendary saxophone player from the Count Basie Orchestra, which resulted not only in numerous joint live performances, but also in the recording of two albums featuring the famous Hank Jones. Among Ilya’s colleagues are: Barry Harris, Jimmy Cob, Louis Hayes, Melvin Rhyne, Cedar Walton, Ray Appleton, Ronnie Matthews and Jimmy Lovelace.
Grigoriy Voskoboynik (contrabass) and Egor Kryukovskikh (drums), the musicians from Saint Petersburg, need no introduction, as they have already conquered the best jazz concert venues of the Northern Capital and accompany the world celebrities on a regular basis.
“In my view, jazz is one of the greatest music languages. Perhaps, it is the best invention of America,” Vangelis.
