Vladimiras Tarasovas has the ability to reach the heart of a listener with his drum and percussion sounds. On 26 September, the closing evening of the 20th Vilnius Mama Jazz festival, he will appear with his quartet.   

Although Tarasov is often introduced as a jazzman, music of this multidisciplinary musician cannot be reduced into a neat category. He is a composer, percussionist and a creator of visual arts projects who has collaborated with jazz bands and academic music ensembles for many years and even some exotic performers such as Tuvan throat singer Sainkho Namtchylak. Tarasov is an artist who creates his own genre rather than realizing his ideas within the framework of a particular style.

The percussionist has crossed the globe during his awe-inspiring career. He has performed at joint projects with such renowned musicians and artists as Andrew Cyrille, Anthony Braxton, Thomasz Stanko, Mark Dresser, Gyorgy Szabados, Kazutoki Umezu, and many others. His music and audio-visual projects have been staged at the Pompidou Centre in Paris, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, in the experimental cavern CMS of the European Nuclear Research Organization, one hundred meters below the ground.

Tarasov is a visionary. His creative work remains relevant and is even ahead of his time. A great example is his opus Atto IV rereleased by the Finnish indie electronics label a few years ago.

The drum and percussion guru, who previously appeared on the Vilnius Mama Jazz scene in joint projects with Vladimiras Čekasinas or the Lithuanian Art Orchestra, will perform at the 20th festival with talented friends Vytautas Labutis, Eugenijus Kanevičius and Mindaugas Vadoklis.

“The point of departure for our programme as a quartet will be the Tapestry cycle, two parts of which we staged in 2014 and 2015 at Vilnius Mama Jazz festivals. This should be music closer to new bop, although it is hard to say what the end result will be. Everything will come to light during the concert,” the leader of the quartet said with a smile in his face. When asked about the composition of the group, he added: “We’ve played with Vytautas, Eugenijus and Mindaugas in my big band and in other collectives. Each of them has its own style and all of them are great musicians. I really like collaboration between Ornette Colemann and Don Cherry. I wanted to find an equally appealing combination of the alto saxophone and the trumpet for this performance, and immediately realized that I cannot do without Labutis and Vadoklis.”
