Igor's Debut Jazz Album
About the project:
I moved to U.S. from Israel in 2011, completely changing my professional career and life course. For the past nine years living in New York and Los Angeles, I had a privilege to perform with many great artists and to compose/arrange music for commercial projects such as films, TV, Broadway shows etc... As much as it feels very fulfilling contributing your art and craft to other people's visions, it is important to every artist to develop their own voice. I've been constantly working on my own music throughout the years and now’s the time to release my first jazz album as a bandleader!
Music in this album reflects my personal journey for the past nine years, and I’m sure it will speak to many people, as we are all constantly moving in our lives, physically and emotionally, changing places, phases of lives and life perspectives… The music I chose to record is a variety of original compositions starting from the time living in New York and until most recent music composed just few months ago, and it also will feature nine-time Grammy Award nominee incredible jazz vocalist Tierney Sutton!
Recording an album is a big challenge for an independent artist like myself, both artistically and financially. Especially now, as we are all going through difficult times due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, many artists including myself have lost our sources of revenue from public performances, live shows and concerts. It is very important for us to stay engaged with our audiences and to continue to create a valuable content. As long as I’ve been working hard to take care of artistic part (developing musical ideas, composing, arranging, finding the right musicians, rehearsing and bringing music to live), this project still needs help with financial part, so it will be possible for me to cover all the expenses involved the process.
I need to raise $9,500 which will go towards renting recording studio, paying to musicians and engineers, mixing, mastering, CD manufacturing and distribution. Every little will help and I will very appreciate your support!
