Giant of Russian Jazz George Garanyan Passes Away

Luminary of the Russian jazz, the Peoples Artist of Russia George Garanian has died at the age of 75 in Krasnodar.
      The famous saxophone player, conductor and composer suffered a heart attack two days before the expected concert in Krasnodar. The concert will not be canceled, however - on January 13 his colleagues and friends will perform in his honour.
      George Aramovich Garanian was born in 1934. His parents had nothing to do with music, but encouraged their sons craving for music. In the 1950s he already played in the Orchestra of the Central House of Artworkers.
      A turning point in the music career of George Garanyan was an invitation to Oleg Lundstrems orchestra that consisted of Shanghais immigrants who returned to Russia in a body.
      Even at quite a considerable age, when performing on stage, George Garanian produced an impression of a very light musician, who easily darts off into most audacious improvisations at first chance.
