With his smooth, warm tone and pianist John Escreet's rolling, uncluttered Horace Silver-like ease, Russian tenor saxophonist Sergej Avanesov's Secret Language instantly rewards the listener like an old school Blue Note session.

Proudly citing his inspirations John Coltrane, Joshua Redman, and Keith Jarrett, Avanesov admits to meticulously studying our vast jazz heritage and it's far reaching echoes influence the nine muscular originals that comprise Secret Language . Fleet and fearless, double bassist Boris Kozlov and drummer Samuel Sarkisyan provide their ever evolving leader with a tensile, yet shifting palette, at once enveloping and freeing Avaneso's reflective meditations ("14," "Yoomi") and bloder explorations, the brooding, intense, title excursion and the ranging "Short Memory." A talent to listen for.
