Geboren 1994 in Kiew, lebt Danil Zverkhanovsky mittlerweile als Gitarrist und Komponist in Berlin.

Ukrainian guitarist and composer Danil Zverkhanovsky had spent the last ten years abroad and the best part of those were in Berlin. After releasing his debut original album «In Pieces Suite» in 2017 produced yet another few years back by his then teacher and mentor Kurt Rosenwinkel, he’s finally back with a followup «Work In Progress». The album is being released digitally on Danil’s new DIY label Dnipro & Kruchi and is broken up in three EP’s and accompanying materials (Vol.1 out since 11.11.2022; Vol.2 released 06.01.2023 and Vol.3 set for 10.02.2023). His playing and writing here is still mainly Jazz but it’s gradually taking on more playful stylistic twists. The setting is basically a trio with Igor Osypov on bass guitar and Jesus Vega on drums; together with Zverkhanovsky it’s a flexible group well suited for live performances.

In 2022 just like most other Ukrainian artists abroad Danil had been busy participating in and co-organising various benefit concerts in venues like Donau115, ZigZag and A-Trane as well as a long string of other locations.

«Work In Progress» is a decorated guitar trio session consisting of nine diverse originals and seven short interludes. On different occasions the arrangements feature ensemble and solo brass and woodwinds as well as some electric piano, synths and post effects. The main recordings took place in November 2020, the tunes being written and revisited between 2010-2020. Unlike «In Pieces Suite» in this collection the songs mostly have little to do with one another conceptually - it’s a setlist of small forms that should be instantly familiar to an experienced listener. The producer-slash-artist’s original idea was to go for a «modern Rudy-Van-Gelder kind of thing» and it was assumed that it wouldn’t be possible without a certain openness to the approach, hence the records’ title.
