Attention please: Norrköping news calls Karl 2000 "Newjazz of best kind" (Sweden, 8/29/2012)


"Albert Ayler goes Punk! Freaky, funny. stunning!" SWING JOURNAL (Japan) (9/20/2012)


"When you have three American musicians — two from Greenville, SC — interpreting Russian folk music, you might expect it to get a little wild and full of pastiche. This new band and their new, self-titled debut album, play up the Soviet-ness of their act…from the name to the red CD jacket to the pseudo-Cyrillic spelling of the song title names. The music itself is sometimes playful with the whole Russian theme, but filtered through the boundless energy of outside jazz, it becomes clear that, ultimately, the band does mean business." SOMETHING ELSE! REVIEWS (December 2012)

"The whole album is free of gimmick and engaging. There is no dichotomy between the organically occurring energy of the band and the studio. One could almost imagine friends and well-wishers in the booth, drinks in hand watching and cheering them on." MOSCOW DOES NOT BELIEVE IN MONKEYS. maxwellchandler.wordpress.com/tag/karl-2000/


"Part of the beauty of Karl 2000 is its ability to create an intense sensation of impending chaos without abandoning either structure or melody." ALL ABOUT JAZZ (December 2012).

Track Name: A Cliff On The Volga
Есть на Волге утёс, диким мохом оброс
Он с вершины до самого края.
И стоит сотни лет, только мохом одет,
Ни нужды, ни заботы не зная.
И стоит сотни лет, только мохом одет,
Ни нужды, ни заботы не зная.

На вершине его не растет ничего
Только ветер свободный гуляет.
Там могучий орел свой притон там завел
И на нем свои жертвы терзает.
Там могучий орел свой притон там завел
И на нем свои жертвы терзает.

Из людей лишь один на утёсе том был,
Лишь один до вершины добрался.
И утёс человека того не забыл,
И с тех пор его именем звался.

И поныне стоит тот утёс и хранит
Все заветные думы Степана,
И лишь с Волгой одной вспоминает порой
Удалое житьё атамана.
И лишь с Волгой одной вспоминает порой
Удалое житьё атамана.

There is a cliff on the Volga river covered with wild moss
From its top to its bottom
And it stands there for hundreds of years covered with moss
Knowing neither need nor care.
And it stands there for hundreds of years covered with moss
Knowing neither need nor care.

Nothing grows on the top of it
Just the free wind floats around
A mighty eagle made his hideout there
And there it torments its victims.
A mighty eagle made his hideout there
And there it torments its victims.

Only one man among all others was on that cliff
Only he was able to get to the top
And the cliff didn’t forget this man
And from then on it was called by the man’s name.

And that cliff is still there and it still keeps
All the cherished thoughts of Stepan (Razin)
And along with only the Volga river it remembers sometimes
The glorious living of the rebel leader
And along with only the Volga river it remembers sometimes
The glorious living of the rebel leader!
