Bassist Victor Dvoskin has performed internationally for more than 25 years, releasing more than 25 jazz recordings in Russia, the U.S., France and Israel. He has performed with Joe Henderson, Bobby Hutcherson, the Great American Music Ensemble, Gary Bartz, René Marie, Joe Locke, Jeff “Tain” Watts, Nick Brignola, Jon Faddis, Joe Kennedy Jr., and Christian McBride. He has performed at such venues as Bratislava Jazz Days, Jazz Yatra, Le Mans Jazz Festival, Prague Jazz Festival, Leipziger Jazztag, Helsinki Jazz Festival, Grenoble Jazz Festival and Red Sea Jazz Festival, plus regional performances at such locales as Wolftrap, Blues Alley and One Step Down.

Dvoskin initially gained popularity in the former Soviet Union in the early 1970s. During his nine years with Allegro, a jazz combo led by pianist Nikolai Levinovski, he developed a strong audience following and Soviet jazz critics considered him the number-one bass player of the 1980s. The first performance in 1990 of his own group, “Victor Dvoskin Quartet: Live at the Grenoble Jazz Festival,” was issued on CD by the French jazz label Thelonious, earning three stars in the Penguin Guide to Jazz.

He first came to Washington, D.C., in 1991 as a part of the Russian/American jazz quartet, Jazznost, which included Sergei Gurbeloshvili (tenor sax), Louis Scherr (piano) and Tony Martucci (drums) and toured both countries extensively from 1991 to 1993. The group’s first CD, “Joint Venture,” was released on Timeless Records and received four stars from DownBeat. These musicians, joined by Gary Burton (vibes), Ryan Kisor (trumpet), Don Alias (percussion), Igor Butman (sax), Paul Bollenback (guitar) and Ken Willaman (cello), recently came together again to record as Partners in Time, resulting in the chart-climbing CD release, “Equinost” (Intersound).


Pianist Harry Appelman has performed on concert stages on five continents. He has been chosen three times to participate in U.S. State Department music tours overseas -- to South and Central America, Eastern Europe, Turkey and Cyprus, and South Asia. He performed in Egypt in February 2008 with the Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra, and has performed at the Festival Gnaouas et Musiques du Monde in Essaouira, Morocco and the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland. Mr. Appelman has toured the United States and Canada with the Woody Herman Orchestra and the Artie Shaw Orchestra. He was a finalist in both the 1987 and 1988 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Piano Competitions (finishing second in 1988) and one of three prizewinners in the 1989 Great American Jazz Piano Competition. Appelman has performed in small groups led by Conrad Herwig, Eddie Daniels, Gary Thomas, George Garzone, Jerry Bergonzi, Jim Snidero, Valery Ponomarev, Brian Lynch, Don Braden, Vincent Herring, Jack Wilkins and Walt Weiskopf, among others. Mr. Appelman was named in Washingtonian magazine's February 2003 "Great Music" issue as one of the D.C. area's best jazz artists. He currently performs in the area at Blues Alley, the Millenium Stage at the Kennedy Center, Wolf Trap, Twins, and other popular jazz venues.
