Chillaxonic – 2nd Facet

Multi-instrumentalist Konstantin Klashtorni produces new music faster than I can review it. Chillaxonic is an artificial word made up of Chill Out and Sonic. This label stands for a combination of the music styles jazz, chill out and electronica. This is the second album of a long lasting series.

Violet Twilight spreads a magic fluid of excellence combining piano and synth sounds for your personal dreams. As overlay he caresses the listener with soothing sax.

Soulful Awakenings acts as a tender wake-up call polished up with a wonderful mix of wavering sounds and flute. Together We Fly brings the ethereal to sonic perfection. Sax, synth and piano are found in seamless triad.

Konstantin Klashtorni – 2nd Facet

Ukraine-born multi-instrumentalist Konstantin Klashtorni has released his album 1st Facet under the project name Chillaxonic. It is probably due to the effervescent creativity of this gifted artist that he publishes his works under more and more new names. On the other hand, this name also results from a combination of the music styles Jazz, Chill Out and Electronica, which can be found on the new album.

We are already used to it from Konstantin that he utilizes the advantages of his own studio and records the album quasi all by himself. However this album features Michael Simon (trumpet) and Alex Yarosh (guitar) as guest musicians on selected tracks. Konstantin has written, mixed and recorded all tracks.

As always he creates a continuation and in this case it’s called 2nd Facet. Get this album as download on Amazon.com.

Konstantin Klashtorni – 7×7

Multi-instrumentalist and producer Konstantin Klashtorni is one of the most popular musicians in the field of smooth jazz on CDBaby. Browsing the list of top sellers you will certainly find most of his albums there. He is known by his projects Kool&KleanChillaxing Jazz KollektionLove Suggestions, eJazz Artistry and Smooth Jazz. Furthermore he has released three compilations packed with the best pieces in his opinion: Best Of Chill Jazz I, II and III (2019). An overwhelming creative force.

For the first time Konstantin joined the prestigious label Skytown Records with his album 7×7 reminding on his 49th birthday. The title song introduces into the album with a cloud of synth sound before flute and piano take control over the sonic theme polishing it to perfection.

Konstantin returns on Charmed to his native instrument, the saxophone. At the same time, however, it is evident that he likes to perform the melodies with different instrumental approaches. Moments Like These proves Konstantin’s exquisite compositional talent. Also impressive is his sense for supreme arrangements.

Konstantin Klashtorni – 7 x 7

Konstantin Klashtorni has done more than most in extending the global reach of smooth jazz. Originally from the Ukraine and now domiciled in Germany this fine multi instrumentalist has been building an extensive discography for the last sixteen years and is all set to add to it with the February 14 release of the superb “7 x 7”. The date is significant in that it coincides with Klashtorni’s 49th birthday, a milestone that he has used to bestow the album with its title. “7 x 7” is a sumptuous eleven track collection of gentle rhythms and compelling melodies that draws on all Klashtorni’s experiences as solo artist, master of chill and king of cool.

In fact, if you want to know what “7 x 7”, or for that matter Konstantin Klashtorni, is all about then look no further than the vibe drenched title cut that glides along like light on water. Klashtorni is well known for delivering his jazz with a major slice of cool and they don’t come much cooler that the superb “Moments Like These”. Elsewhere, and with expansive production throughout, the chilled out “Timeless” really gets the job done while the warmly inviting groove of “Sensitivities” might just be the ultimate antidote to a stressful day.

Sounding more like a request than a song title “Hypnotize Me” hints at the sublimely addictive quality of Klashtorni’s music and although the easy grooving “Charmed” provides a timely reminder of his artistry on sax it is with “Just For 2” that Klashtorni takes an enticing walk on the romantically melodic side. “Nothing Stands Between Us” proves to be a slice of textbook mid tempo smooth jazz of the kind that never gets old while the first single to be selected for radio is the sunshine filled “By The Bay”. It will go for adds on February 10th and talking of sunshine the dazzling “Reflections Over Water” where Konstantin comes up big on flute might well get in your head and not go away. “Late Night With U” brings “7 x 7” to a close and its ‘feel good’ aura that is all pervading could well be a fitting metaphor for the entire CD.

The new project starts stylistically, where Konstantin’s previous albums left off. Ineffable elegantly mixes pleasurable sounds of guitar, synths and sax to the typical Klashtorni groove. Ethereal is the attribute for extremely light and delicate music, as if not of this world.

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.
