Little Finale

«Moscow @ 3 am» is a second album by Igor Butman Big Band which features music by Nick Levinovsky, one of the most gifted contemporary composers. Nick Levinovsky is known not only as a groundbreaking composer, he’s a pianist and creator of the famous USSR jazz band called “Allegro” in which Igor Butman used to play in 1983-87 till his departure to the US. Levinovsky moved to New York in 1990, and Butman moved back to Moscow in 1995, but this fact doesn’t prevent the musicians from successful collaboration lasting for already 27 years! «Moscow @ 3 am» is a long-expected fruit of partnership between outstanding composer and the hottest Russian jazz orchestra, Album was recorded in 2007 in  Moscow, mastered and edited at Avatar studio in New York. What makes the record even more valuable is participation of the world’s most famous jazz musician, amazing Wynton Marsalis!
