Hristo Vitchev is a jazz guitarist and composer who just recently completed a tour of Korea with his quartet this past October, and is now planning for an upcoming 10 day/cities tour of Japan. Aside from touring, Vitchev has a number of musical endeavors in the works including a new fusion project with the Errol Rackipov Group.
The Errol Rackipov Group is led by virtuoso vibraphonist and master composer Errol Rackipov (Errol is one of the first students that Gary Burton took under his wing back in the days). This is a truly international group that showcases some of the most exciting improvisers on the scene today.
On piano, they have none other than Martin Bejerano (the pianist for Roy Haynes, Russell Malone, Dave Holland, and many other legends of jazz). On sax, the great reedman from Vienna, Austria - Lubomir Gospodinov. On drums, the masterful Costa Rican drummer and phenomenal composer Rodolfo Zuniga. On bass is one of the most in demand and up and coming bassists in Miami, FL, Mr. Josh Allen, and on guitar, Hristo Vitchev.
Their debut album "Pictures from a Train Window" is literally being pressed now and will be ready for an official release in the coming weeks.
This record is an unique fusion of the lyricism of impressionistic chamber music with the romanticism of Argentinian tango and the edge, excitement, and exploratory spirit of modern jazz with the diverse sonic tapestry of the Eastern European folklore traditions.
