About the album

The opener Ya Tashus', which gives the album its name (Russian for "I'm wild about it"), is fascinating due to the contrast between Sascha Stiehler's reduced and accented piano playing on a complexly structured rhythm base. The clear, full sax sounds of the bandleader whirr above it. And then you are already hooked in the Evgeny Ring world. It is a world far from the Olympian higher-faster-further philosophy that bets on the ensemble effect instead of technical possibilities. For this to succeed, masters of the profession are required. And this succeeds superbly on Ya Tashus'. In the peaceful On The Verge, Dominique Ehlert, who otherwise sends out sparks, plays the drums in an extremely restrained manner, just as the ambience requires. Above all (or should we said behind all), a contrabass sound of a special kind floats; gentle, full, clear, present and discreet are the attributes, which are appropriate all at the same time for the mode of playing of Philipp Rohmer. They know their Kurt Weill, they know their Thelonious Monk and Bill Evans, and of course they also know their Miles Davis. The only composition not by them on this debut album is by Miles, Nardis (and Miles composed it for Cannonball Adderley, but never recorded it himself). But the Evgeny Ring Quartet interprets this Nardis as if it came from Scandinavia. That is what is particularly special about the Evgeny Ring Quartet: When they do use material from others, then firstly only as an exception and secondly not as a copy. More than this exception is not required either, because Evgeny Ring and Sascha Stiehler prove that they have a high level of composing skills. By the way, we do not think it is reprehensible at all if you want to accompany the infectious groove by snapping your fingers and following the rhythmic complexity by nodding your head not necessarily in time. We are talking from experience.
  • “Great music, full of twists and turns and use of a modern language.” Jerry Bergonzi
  • Tijdens Burghausen Jazz Festival in 2009 was het publiek uitzinnig tijdens het optreden van het Evgeny Ring Quartet: ze werden als popsterren behandeld
  • Tijdens het festival ontstond spontaan een nieuwe categorie van de debuterende "European Jazz Prize for the Next Generation" namelijk "Best Soloist"
  • En de prijs ging naar: drummer Dominique "Gaga" Ehlert!
  • Dit is een kwartet met enorme diepgang en integriteit, maar ook zorgeloos swingend en gevoelig
  • Met compositiekwaliteit in huis van Evgeny Ring Sascha Stiehler
Der albumtitelgebende Opener Ya Tashus' (russisch f�r ?da steh ich drauf?) fasziniert durch den Kontrast von Sascha Stiehlers reduziert und akzentuiert gespieltem Piano auf komplex konstruierter Rhythmus-Basis. Dar�ber flirren die klaren, satten Sax-T�ne des Bandleaders. Und schon ist man in der Evgeny-Ring-Welt gefangen. Einer Welt, die fern des olympischen H�her-Schneller-Weiter-Gedankens auf Ensemble-Wirkung setzt statt auf Ausstellung des technisch M�glichen.

Evgeny Ring Quartet

Born in Rostov-on-Don, Evgeny Ring moved to Leipzig in October 2007 to study saxophone at the renowned College for Music and Theater. Thanks to his friendly disposition, he quickly found new friends among fellow students and selected three of them to found a quartet. As the Evgeny Ring Quartet, they want to express their musical view of the world in a rustic ensemble sound as the symbiosis of Russian and German culture with the kind support of their college mentors Johannes Enders and Richie Beirach.  In more than 60 concerts (among others, in Burghausen where they also filled the Double Moon 'talent scout' with enthusiasm) and a Russian tour, they have made name for themselves in the German and Russian...
