This all-instrumental EP shows Konstantin Kolesnichenko's tasty harmonica and an jazzy quartet. The five world-famous songs get their new vision and interesting touch of harmonica sound.

A native of Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine, Kostantin's career has spanned 12 years. He began playing harmonica at age 19. In 2008 he joined the Bullet Blues Band a local chicago blues band and acoustic duo with guitarist Oleg Lavrik. The band opened for such greats as Guy Davis, Keith Dunn, Mikhail Mishouris blues band, Max Tavricheskiy and so on. He took part in the first international harmonica festival in Kiev, Ukraine in 2011.
In 2014 he released his first album "If You Want to See This Blues". Which was a mix of blues and jazz and gets a pretty good attention in public. He is pretty well known in ukrainian, russian and belorussian harmonica community but in USA and Europe he has a good auditory too.

"I love Konstantin's playing. Soulful, powerful, emotionaly strong" - Jelly Roll Johnson

Not common for harmonica!
From the very beginning of my harmonica journey I was wondered, why most harmonica players perform the same Little Walter stuff and although I love this stuff too I always look for harmonica players who think outside the box. Konstantin is one of these guys! EP is still in tradition it's funky, jazzy, but it's uncommon to hear such good harmonica playing in this music. Konstantin have some very bright ideas in his playing. I dig harmonica tone, especially fat warm overdriven tone.
