Oct 07, 2023, 7:30 PM – 10:30 PM

Sam First, 6171 W Century Blvd #180, Los Angeles, CA 90045, USA

Ruslan Sirota (piano), Kira Levin (vocals), Mike Gurrola (bass), Gene Coye (drums)

When asked how he might describe his music Ruslan throws a quizzical look, “That's a tough one!”  He settles on  “jazz meets everything else,” with a laugh, and then adds,  “My preferences gravitate more towards a certain level of musical content, rather than to a certain style or a particular vibe that I favor over any other. This leaves things pretty open for me, stylistically, both as a musician and a fan”.

A Grammy winner, Ruslan is just as at home in elegant concert attire as he is in his Chuck Taylor's and blue jeans. Currently living in Los Angeles,  Ruslan has already traveled the world, playing with some of the biggest names in Jazz and pop music.  Like most great musicians, however, Ruslan recalls humble beginnings. “Around the age of six I put music to a local poet's song describing the beauty and charm of our little town.” That little town was Uman, in what is now Ukraine. Ruslan calls Uman his “first hometown” and it was there that his father, leader of a top 40 party band, infused him with a love for music. Since then Ruslan has scored a full scholarship to the prestigious Berklee College of Music, and has recorded with everyone from Chick Corea, Stanley Clarke, and Bob Mintzer to Kamasi Washington, Thundercat, and Josh Groban.
