Musician

Yakiv Tsvietinskyi

Born:

Jazz trumpeter Yakiv Tsvietinskyi is one of the modern voices of the Ukrainian jazz scene. Deeply rooted in classical and modernist music as a composer, Yakiv creates jazz pieces with developed complex textures while maintaining the freedom and spontaneity of the improvisational nature of jazz. His trumpet style combines the influences of Chet Baker’s lyricism, Clark Terry’s feel of motion, Tomasz Stanko’s sound and Kenny Wheeler’s unpredictability.
