The first major Russian jazz musician to make an impression in the United States, Valery Ponomarev has always had an attractive tone, a swinging style, and a strong interest in keeping the hard bop legacy of Clifford Brown alive. After playing in Russia for many years, he joined Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers, a perfect outlet for his style, from 1977-1980; he recorded nine albums with Blakey for such labels as Roulette, Timeless and Concord. Ponomarev has since freelanced, usually leading his own quintets and recording extensively for Reservoir. Don't miss the Valery Ponomarev Quartet live in concert at Jazz Forum in Tarrytown.
