Biography

What makes Igor’s music and playing so unique is its complexity. There is a quality to his playing and compositions that has absorbed the rich traditions of jazz music in this country but has also added something new and unidentifiable. His compositions flow with ease and vitality off odd time signatures. There is also darkness and a mystery to his sound that is all his own. No one else sounds like that—and that’s one of the highest compliments you can give to a jazz musician. The complex emotions that feed the sounds of great artists in the jazz tradition have to do with the experience of enormous conflicts. You can’t fake that quality, and Igor has it.
