Akopov is a Russian born composer who began classical piano at 7, at 15 joined the Moscow Jazz Studio and by 17 had participated in his first jazz festival. Now 28 and living in Los Angeles, Akopov heads the quartet "Kroog" and has played and recorded with various jazz artists. A blend of acoustic and fusion jazz Akopov is very talented and holds a degree from UCLA in film scoring. The song "Spirited Childs Play" is exactly what Akopov makes playing the piano sound like. A warm and harmonic musician we can expect only greater things from this young composer.

A Russian-born pianist, Andrew Akopov moved to the United States in the early '90s and shows on this impressive CD that he is a world-class jazz improviser. Akopov composed and arranged all ten selections on this CD, music that can be considered post-bop. Gary Meek, on tenor, soprano, and flute, is sometimes a little reminiscent of Ernie Watts, playing with intensity and strong control over his horn.

Musician and composer Andrew Akopov acquired an ear and technique at an early age while growing up in Russia. His love for classical composers and passion for American jazz standards led to his participation in the International Moscow Jazz Festival at the young age of 17. After finishing his studies at the Moscow Music Academy in 1977, he immigrated to the United States to pursue his passion for jazz. In the mid-1980s, Akopov founded the group Kroog which performed his original compositions
