Igor Lazarev Guitarist

Live Reviews

„Super likeable people and brilliant music – pure energy. Thanks a lot!“
Elke Bauschert (Ebene 3)

 

„Christian Kussmann, his bass player for the last two and a half years, is able to show what he can in terms of solo playing, taking turns with Lazarev, who often reminds of Joe Satriani or John Scofield when playing, surprising everybody time and again.“
Uwe Deecke (Heilbronner Stimme)

 

“Thank you, Igor, for the wonderfully funky, groovy & rocking concert. For sure, this wasn’t the last time here at the Jazzclub Hürth!”
Jazzclub Hürth

 

“The Lazarev Project Group – guitar – bass – drums – took the KOMM stage with concerted high-energy jazz rock and with virtuosity, feeling, diversity and contagious enthusiasm. You want to hear this kind of music again.”
Max (KOMM Düren)

 

“Again, thank you for an outstanding concert. You even surpassed my expectations with your exciting, diversified and inspired play.”
Gerd Harthus (Jazz Folk Bike)

 

“After a few beats already, no one in our music workshop audience doubted to witness an extraordinary concert. Igor Lazarev (guitar), James Morgan (bass) and Bernhard Spiess (drums) not only set a mark of uncompromised craftsmanship by their virtuos and enthusing fusion jazz, they also delighted through the dense atmosphere of their complex instrumental compositions. What a great concert!”
Hans-Peter Herkenhöhner (Musikwerkstatt Siegburg)

 

“Incredebly versatile guitar play by Russian Igor Lazarev performing his very own songs, many from his current CD. Not any less creative: Christian Kussmann on bass, again and again playing solos on the highest level. And really very well together with drummer Bernhard Spiess. That was an intelligent and fantastically well hearable guitar fusion premiere. Please come again!”
Peter „PeeKay“ Kallen (cafe-a-gogo.blogspot.de)

 

“The Lazarev Project Group convinced all our guests – it was a hammer of a show!!”
Markus Salomo (www.alte-molkerei.info)

 

“You simply must have heard the Lazarev Project Group. The three musicians including Igor Lazarev inspire through powerful and energetic fusion jazz and always find delicate sounds as well in their compositions.”
Dieter Müller (www.jazzclub-erfurt.de)

 

“Igor Lazarev bridges the gap between jazz und earthy blues rock. Most virtuosic and with great enthusiasm and passion for the diversified self-written set, it is impressing and entertaining to watch the Lazarev Project with its outstanding musicians. A great fun even for an audience that is not too keen on jazz!”
Axel Kemper-Moll (www.jazzsession-offenbach.de)

 

“What a terrific night at the Hamborner Ratskeller with the Igor Lazarev Trio: Virtuosity and tremendous musicality paired with an unlimited joy of playing plus a good-humored and infectious stage presence. One of the most beautiful concerts here in the last years!”
Sabine and Christian (www.hamborner-ratskeller.de)

 

“We received a lot of enthusiastic feedback by expert listeners as well as random guests. A very successful evening, in other words: amazing fusion
jazz at world-class level!”

Volker Venohr (www.lechenicher-jazzfest.de)

 

“What an inspiring band! Great music! Outstanding artists! This is how you do live jazz!”
Martin Tilke (www.jazzin-erftstadt.de)

 

“It was fascinating how you amazed our audience as a trio. That was another guitar highpoint after gigs of Mike Stern or Dean Brown, for example.”
Peter Hayduk (www.jazzcluboase.de)

 

“The Lazarev Project Group delivered a great concert here at the Verden Jazz and Blues Days. Keep on being successful!”
Heiner Stöve (www.jazzundblues.de)
