Chillaxing Jazz KolleKtion – Groove Jazz N Chill #8

gjnc8Multi-instrumentalist Konstantin Klashtorni is by far the most prolific musician of the smooth jazz genre. Most recently residing in Heiligenhaus, Germany, the circumstances of the Corona pandemic prompted him to move back to his homeland, Ukraine. The possibilities of development as a musician had deteriorated to such an extent that he now took this step.

He hopes to move into a house near Kiev next year and build a new studio there to continue his successful productions. Still from his period in Germany comes the album Groove Jazz N Chill #8, which was created in the series Chillaxing Jazz KolleKtion. As usual Konstantin has written, produced, arranged, mixed and mastered all tracks.

Doesn’t man look for what is beautiful and worthy of praise? If you can’t achieve it in life, however, it can be realized in your dreams. Konstantin has written his own anthem for you with True Dreams, understand it as a musical accompaniment.

Chillaxing Jazz Kollektion – Groove Jazz N Chill # 7

Multi-instrumentalist Konstantin Klashtorni, best known as the most active musician in the Smooth Jazz genre, hadn’t appeared in months. Not until September of this year did the relief news come, a new album is released. Considering his huge total works, the question arose, in which section will the album be released?

Chillaxing Jazz KolleKtion presents Groove Jazz N Chill #7. That’s called constancy.  Exclusively composed and recorded by Konstantin himself. He also manufactures and distributes his albums and thus demonstrates his economic independence as a creative artist.

Memories of Us opens the album with a soft breeze of melody and a nicely balance of keys and sax. The swelling and decaying wave-tone provides an atmospheric basis for the use of piano and saxophone. Changing Seasons emphasizes a harmonious sonic collage of different sounds, which is very close to the spherical sounds of New Age music.

Chillaxing Jazz KolleKtion – Groove Jazz N Chill # 6

The facts about the multi-instrumentalist Konstantin Klashtorni are quickly put together. Since this multi-talented Ukraine born artist lives in a small city nearby Düsseldorf and built up his own studio, his musical activities are literally exploded. Personally, I consider him to be the most active musician in the Smooth Jazz genre.

I admit that activity is not everything. But his creativity and diversity of ideas sets new standards. Equipped with intuitive intelligence and the nose of a truffle hunter his melodies inspire me again and again. Influenced by the musicians Paul Hardcastle and Brian Culbertson I see him today on the same level. Among his numerous series includes Chillaxing Jazz KolleKtion.

Just released in this series is his sixth album, that was exclusively composed and recorded by him again. When you play the first piece Dearest, you immediately notice a certain closeness to the genre, which has since been forgotten, but as New Age still adequately describes the sound. Starting with a trippy water effect Konstantin quickly dives into the portfolio of his sound equipment, where the crystal clear acoustic guitar ensures a melodic constancy.

Releasing so many records I wonder from where Konstantin Klashtorni get all these inspirations for new songs. What is his working receipt? Konstantin comments꞉ “I listen a lot of different music, I like country music, many pop songs (not all) are of great inspiration. Latin music I like a lot, there is a special drive in it, which helps my grooves to sound a bit distinctive. And of course there is a bunch of Smooth Jazz music where i get my inspiration from. I just need a small idea, usually harmonic, some chords progression or sounds.

Further laying down grooves and the rest is more mechanical process, everything after flows by itself. Specially melody, I’ve been through all these years wherever I lived, famous for playing short 8, 16 bars sax solos being able to tell a story, so, for me to create a nice melody is much easier and naturally than for overwhelming amount of mates. I’ve been accumulating for many years ideas and experience, and now is the moment to “write all this in stone” and I like it much more than just playing saxophone.″

Klashtorni opens the album with Have Your Way, a reverie with crystal clear sounds and acoustic guitar in the lead. When the sun rays of the new day are warming up nature, then we are greeting with Good Morning. Konstantin catches the loveliness of the moment with sweet tones.

Chillaxing Jazz KolleKtion – Groove Jazz N Chill #2

Multi-instrumentalist Konstantin Klashtorni is known to have released two series. Kool&Klean and Chillaxing Jazz Kollektion. I asked him to describe the difference between both series from his personal sight as artist.

Konstantin explains꞉ “Kool&Klean is more groovy, trendy and experimental. I try to open another sound dimension still staying within SJ genre. Chillaxing Jazz Collection is more chill out orientated, with ballad and romantic feel to it. And style wise it’s on edge with New Age, at least I approach it this way. Although it’s about an idea I had before creating both series, some songs can be slightly in the different vein (nobody is perfect).″

Keeping that in mind Happiness outshines the audience mood in the true sense of word with the utmost relaxation and peaceful contemplation. Touch is a physical mode of interaction between two human beings. In a pure mental sphere music can touch in a spiritual moving. This is the intention of the second tune.

Chillaxing Jazz KolleKtion – Groove Jazz N Chill #1

Multi-instrumentalist Konstantin Klashtorni has traveled the world and joined many groups in the past. Now he is recording his music as a one man band. Asked why he doesn’t perform with other musicians anymore, he has a simple answer.

“The reason I’m not touring is that the planes and hotels is not exactly my thing, I can’t get used easily to time zone change, to different food, etc. Playing live is not bringing me that joy as it was before, although I still play live and have my chops in place, – on the other side producing DOES. Since some time I stopped looking for legacy in music that many SJ artists are after, instead have chosen for comfortable life style.″

Konstantin serves the aptly melody to the breezy Summer Wind. Gentle guitar sounds are underpinned with supreme keyboard sounds. Colors allures with a soulful bounce and impressive melody. Sigh is an emotional human expression, a sigh of relief, compassion or caressing. All this speaks through Konstantin’s music.
