George Garzone is presenting his New Group featuring Vladimir Kostadinovic on drums, Lenart Krecic on tenor saxophone and Ameen Saleem on bass. In November 2019 they will be on Europe Tour: (Serbia, Slovenia, Croatia, Italy, Spain, Austria, UK, etc) between Nov 15 and 24, 2019. to promote George's album "Crescent".
The emphasis here is on musicianship. Half of the eight tunes on Crescent album are skillful interpretations of standards: Dave Brubeck’s “In Your Own Sweet Way,” Jimmy Van Heusen’s “Like Someone in Love,” Billy Eckstine’s “I Want to Talk About You” and Fred Lacey’s “Theme for Ernie”-each of which Garzone lodestar John Coltrane recorded on one late ’50s album or another, whether his own or as a sideman with Miles Davis.

-Paiste Welcomes Vladimir Kostadinovic To Its Family Of Artistst-

Vladimir Kostadinovic now endorses Paiste cymbals, the company announced. He says he chose to play Paiste Masters, complemented by models from Paiste’s Masters Series.  “I’m really happy to announce my new cymbal endorsement,” Vladimir Kostadinovic says. “I’m now officially playing Paiste cymbals! I’ve checked every major brand on the market and was truly surprised by the unique sound of Paiste. I’ve always thought they were mostly suitable for rock and pop music but with their Masters series they offer an unbelievable sound for jazz.. I am very happy to be a member of the Paiste family!”
