Sergei Zhilin and "Phonograph-Simpho-Jazz". The Program “Legendary Melodies of the 20th century”
We listened to these songs always and everywhere. They are constantly accompanying our lives: from FM, TV or from a neighbor's window. Music that became a symbol of its time.
“Legendary Melodies of the 20th Century” is a unique program of Sergei Zhilin’s “Phonograph-Sympho-Jazz” orchestra. It gave a second life to the hits from all over the world.
Over the past ten years, the orchestra of Sergei Zhilin has rightfully won the title of one of the most popular groups in Russia. Without it, it is no longer possible to imagine either the jazz life of Moscow, or the musical television projects of the TV First Channel.
Dozens of stars cooperate with the “Phonograph-Sympho-Jazz”, among which are Larisa Dolina, Hibla Gerzmava, Alexander Gradsky, Tamara Gverdtsiteli and many others.
About his orchestra, Maestro says, “This is a strong community of bright individuals.” The corporate identity of the “Phonograph” is easy to recognize from the first minutes by its impeccable sense of rhythm, harmonious work of the brass section, inventive improvisations and filigree technique of performance.
The program “Legendary Melodies of the 20th century” is the focus of the most popular melodies and masterful improvisations, hits of the past century and compositions that claim to be legendary in the new millennium: everything from classic and evergreen jazz to rock and roll and powerful funk.
