Two sides of one scene

Here's two very different videos, both filmed by me during this summer. From the improv unlimited on an unusually hot summer day in a sunny St.Petersburg park, to an elegant and romantic 1960s bossa in a dark jazz club in Moscow, they both represent different side of Russian jazz scene. Slava Ganelin (piano, percussion, synthesizer) and Vladimir Volkov (acoustic bass) perform at the Usadba.Jazz festival in St.Petersburg, Russia, July 1, 2012 (middle part of their 45-minutes non-stop improv performance)
Russian jazz vet Alexey Kuznetsov (guitar), Felix Lahuti (electric violin) and bassist Dennis Shushkov perform Alexey Kuznetsov's original "Alyosha" (1968) during the release party for Felix Lahuti's "Universalove" (ArtBeat, 2012) at the Alexey Kozlov Club in Moscow, Russia, on June 27, 2012
