Oleg Butman and Natalia Smirnova are the most passionate, harmonious and musically ballanced couple of the Russian Jazz scene. The musicians convey pure chemistry between them to the audience as well as their onstage musical partners and this ignites the sparks of passion in them making this for which the couple is famous.
Their first album Passion was released in 2009 under the IBMG label. It's been a huge hit and top seller of the label. Their next album Runaway made top 10 of iTunes downloads in the Jazz category of 2013. Their third album Piano Trio From Russia. Vol.2 (2013) was ordered by a music producer for the japanese market. This LP was re-released 4 times and the sales have been extremely successful.
Their latest album Moment Of Happiness (2017) is a totally new experience with Natalia singing her first songs in Russian, revealing her that she is not only a virtuoso pianist, but also viable vocalist with a beautiful and tender timbre and a four-octave vocal range. Some instrumental compositions also include vocalizations and scat singing on top of piano solos.
The Butman-Smirnova duo has collaborated with many world stars such as Eric Marienthal, Randy Brecker, Donny McCaslin, Steve Turre, Gregory Porter, Mike Rodriguez, Danton Boller, Essiet Essiet, Wayne Escoffery, Leon Foster Thomas and Mark Whitfield.
Their music goes beyond mainstream Jazz to include Jungle, Funk, Latin, Swing and even some unusual time signatures of unknown origin. At the same time, ttheir catchy melodies, consistent forms and original ideas clearly expressed in their solos, make Oleg and Natalia's music easy to like and understand. Their programs are complemented with original arrangements of Jazz vocal standards.
