The Break Orchestra: We expect a lot of new discoveries at the Koktebel Jazz Party

— What do you think of the festival itself, its venue? Any emotions?

— Emotions have not yet had time to take shape as we only came last night and gave a performance right away, but judging by today's programme we expect a lot of new discoveries and interesting concerts. And the place is great — the beach, the sea, the sun. The nature here is fantastic — it's one of the most beautiful places on earth.

— Is there anything you have found particularly memorable so far or that you liked especially?

— That we liked — sure! We liked yesterdays concert a lot. Especially Pyotr Vostokov's Big Jazz Orchestra — it was just an astounding performance.

— Whose performances would you like to see at the festival?

— Tom Harrell, Valery Ponomaryov.

— How did your performance go? How responsive was the audience?

— The audience was very responsive and passionate. It's just the right thing! We were very happy with our performance.
