Russian jazz composer Yuri Markin to be honored with an evening of his music on the day he turns 75

Yuri Markin, an outstanding bassist on the 1960s Moscow jazz scene, a pianist and arranger in 1970s and 80s big bands, a jazz educator, and a composer who studied with Rodion Shchedrin at Moscow Conservatory even before he launched a jazz career, to be honored in Moscow with an evening of his music (including his unique Jazz Symphony for Big Band!) on his 75th birthday.
