As our name implies, Lev Kushnir Jazz Agency is a unique, specialized live jazz music service based in Moscow, dedicated to providing only the highest quality music for corporate events, benefits, weddings and other personal celebrations. Our ensembles are made up of experienced professionals that provide elegant renditions of songs in the standard jazz repertoire by the great composers of the 1930’s and 1940’s such as George Gershwin, Cole Porter, and Irving Berlin.
Lev Kushnir Jazz Agency was established in 1999 by Lev Kushnir, an accomplished professional musician and teacher.
Our musicians also have the ability to play music from the classic jazz era of the 1950’s and 1960’s featuring great artists such as Duke Ellington, Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, and John Coltrane. In addition, Lev Kushnir Jazz Agency ensembles can play the smooth Brazilian sounds that became so popular in the bossa nova era of the 1960’s, represented by the compositions of Antonio Carlos Jobim and others.
Because each event is unique, we provide combinations of musicians to match the acoustics of the room, the number of guests attending the event, and the mood of the evening. Depending on whether you want a background guitar trio for dinner, an elegant saxophone quartet for some dancing, or a vocalist leading a quintet, we can offer any of the following combinations of musicians below:
piano/bass or piano/sax duo;
trio — piano, bass, drums or sax;
quartet — trio with saxophone or trumpet;
trio or quartet with female or male vocalist;
large ensemble/big band.
Please note: these groups are the most commonly requested types of bands. Lev Kushnir Jazz Agency works with you to come up with the most appropriate sounding band for your unique function.
While there are other agencies that provide music for formal events, Lev Kushnir Jazz Agency musicians are specialists committed to creating the highest quality jazz music at all times. Because of this devotion to our art form, the music is always delivered with a fresh vitality that you won’t find in our competitors’ music.
