Counting on Angels is a unique CD unleashing a new music form which straddles Russian classical music and contemporary improvised music. The album represents an accumulated experience derived from a decade of musical activity in Russia where drummer Ken Hyder and pianist Vladimir Miller played in main cities and out of the way towns from Leningrad to Vladivostok and from Arkhangelsk to Tuva. They have played with a plethora of Russian contemporary musicians including Valentina Ponomareva, Vladimir Tarasov, Sainkho Namtchylak - and the late Vladimir Rezitsky with whom they recorded as the trio, Northern Lights. Counting on Angels goes deeper into the Russian soul, strips down the music dramatically, presenting a sparseness and a clarity which is often reflected in the Russian landscape. At the same time you can hear echoes of Stravinsky, Moussorgsky and Shostakovich.
