This show is a celebration of ILYA SEROV's new album "Back in Time" that features the music of the Great American Songbook . Ilya will appear on the stage of the iconic Hollywood jazz club Catalina with his 10-piece big band. Special guest of the show Grammy Award - winning and Oscar- nominated pianist and composer, Roger Kellaway

New album "Back In Time" is out!

September 10, 2018

New Record, Featuring Serov's Vibrant Interpretations of Classic Pop Standards, Includes collaborations with Acclaimed Musicians Roger Kellaway, Eric Marienthal and Poncho Sanchez.  Arranged by Tom Kubis, produced and mixed by Val Gabriel.


 Back in Time, the second album from up and coming jazz trumpeter and vocalist Ilya Serov, is now available on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, CD Baby, GooglePlay and Apple Music.

Serov's homage to the Big Band Era, Back in Time features the artist's smooth trumpet playing and unique vocal style. The album is highlighted by Serov's collaborations with Grammy-winning percussionist Poncho Sanchez (the sensuous Latin beat of "Tangerine") and pianist Roger Kellaway (the swinging Gypsy jazz of "C'est Si Bon" and classic pop swing of "L-O-V-E") as well as acclaimed sax player Eric Marienthal ("Old Devil Moon.")

Despite his youth, Serov has impressed his fellow musicians.  

"(Ilya) is a great, great trumpet player; and I love his voice," Sanchez said. "Ilya has a great thing here because it's commercial enough for the mainstream to enjoy and like, but it's hip enough for the jazz folks to like also because he's a great trumpet player. He can sing the tunes and play them. That's the edge he's got."


Trained at the prestigious St. Petersburg Conservatory, Serov decided to follow his love of jazz, cultivated as a teenager in the Russian city of Saratov, by pursuing his dreams in the U.S. He now is building a following among fans and seasoned players alike as one of the scene's budding new talents.  


Serov released his first album September in the Rain, also a big band outing made up entirely of vocal numbers, in 2013. Visit www.ilyaserov.com for more information.

New single "Swing 42" is now released

Jazz trumpeter ILYA SEROV swinging his way through summer in the studio

(Published: August 01, 2017) on JazzCorner.com

 

LAGUNA BEACH (1 August 2017): Jazz trumpeter Ilya Serov has been cooped up in the recording studio all summer working on his second album, but Tuesday night in Laguna Beach, he's going to take a break to make the live performance debut of the first single, "Swing 42," featuring the dapper swingman dueting with Grammy winner and Oscar-nominated pianist Roger Kellaway. Accompanied by his 10-piece big band, Serov will be joined by Kellaway on stage at the Pageant of the Masters 2017.

 

Brandishing a fresh whimsical arrangement by Tom Kubis, Serov's snappy muted trumpet reading of Django Reinhardt's "Swing 42" is a frisky and fun summer frolic bolstered by Kellaway's fanciful piano flourishes and a four-chair horn section.

 

"‘Swing 42' is one of my favorite of Django's tunes. It has such positive energy. I really like the music of that era and I had been compelled to do a rendition of this tune for a while. I am glad we finally did it. It was so much fun and of course it was such an honor and a pleasure to work with an award-winning legend, pianist Roger Kellaway, who is a featured guest on the track. His brilliant play brought so much to the sound," said Serov, a classically-trained musician from St. Petersburg, Russia who resides in Los Angeles.

 

At Tuesday evening's performance, Kellaway will introduce Serov as part of the Rising Stars series in which "world-famous musicians and music aficionados introduce their favorite up and coming performers." The two musicians first formed a bond after meeting a few years ago, which led to the collaboration for Serov's sophomore outing.

 

"I was fortunate to have met Roger several years ago and was featured on a couple of songs during one of his shows. It was an unbelievable experience for me and very encouraging. We stayed in touch and I am proud to call Roger and his lovely wife, Jorjana, my friends. I feel blessed to have been able to work with him and honored to have him play on my album," said Serov, who also teamed with Kellaway to lense a video for "Swing 42" here.

 

Last month, Serov appeared on SiriusXM's The Dave Koz Lounge to talk about "Swing 42" as well as the album in progress, which will consist of standards and tunes from the Great American Songbook Serov is producing.

 

A trumpeter and debonair vocalist, Serov released his debut album, "September in the Rain," in late 2013. A year later, he was named Best New Artist at the Hollywood International Music Awards. Although the new session consists of big band, swing and straight-ahead jazz, Serov is also an imaginative alchemist who experiments with contemporary jazz, R&B, pop and world music nuances.

New creation - Jazzohorn - is here!

10.20.2016

It's been hard to keep it a secret for the last two years, but finally it is my great pleasure to introduce to you a new instrument that I created in collaboration with an amazing trumpet maker Andy Taylor with "Taylor Trumpets".  We called it  "Jazzohorn". This instrument was custom-made for me and it's one of a kind. I’m particularly excited about the tone of the instrument that has a color palette as nuanced and groundbreaking as the design of the instrument itself.  When I first picked up the instrument, there was this sense of newness and innovation about it that I felt a rare chemistry and a bond with it. You will soon hear its beauty in a composition that I’m recording now. My vision is to design the experience to both amaze a first – time jazz listener and delight a long time devotee.I can't wait to show you this horn in action! I will be posting more pictures and videos of this instrument, so please stay tuned!

A new video just came out!
