Dushevy blues

Russian translation by Ludmila Borisova

A Healing Song by Eli Yamin and Clifford Carlson from the jazz musical “Message From Saturn”




We had the good fortune to visit the music school in Abakan, Siberia and get to work with many talented musicians.  Big thanks to Alex, the jazz saxophone teacher and Natalie, the vocal instructor.  What a pleasure it was to work with you and your students.  Check out young drummer, 18-year old Lena.  Her shuffle was so good in the workshop, we invited her to play the encore with us on the concert.  LaFrae picked up the harp and little sister held it down!

Thanks to Irina, Igor, Elena and all the organizers and volunteers of the Abakan International Festival.  We were so honored to take part in such a fine celebration of world culture!

Bob Stewart, deeply engaged with bass student at Abakan music school
