"The compositions and musicianship on Deep Tone project are a distinctly modern and deftly textured crafting of classical elements and European chamber jazz. The themes are constructed as pleasant explorations, occasionally taking more adventurous turns but always grounded in melody. Ionenko has wisely opted for an all-inclusive format and it is a very rewarding one that should lead to broader exposure for all involved."
Karl Ackermann, New York City Jazz Records
"Very sensuous music, with more than enough of the intellect to engage the mind. This music has enough twists, turns and surprises to claim originality of conception. Highly recommended."
Bud Kopman, All About Jazz
"Deep Tone music may be referred to as a contemporary jazz. Interesting, catchy compositions, which often amaze the listener by recurrence in the narration are their asset. It is a very nice, modern and fresh music!"
Krzysztof Komorek, Jazzpress Magazine
"They are bad asses who make you listen. It’s like a bomb that would unlikely explode. But…
The prettiest thing about the Deep Tone quartet is they don’t show off. They’re into humble practice–perform–record mode. Though they should show off, coz they the are the top-notch Ukrainian jazzmen who write and perform music you want to listen to.
There’s no wonder, you can hear quite a few recordings of quartets like this around. But one of the kicks is they are the Ukrainians, not Americans. The other kick is you want to play it again, no matter who they are. There are influences from the mod-60’s jazz to up-to-this-moment music.
They can do things from mellow though in-depth, ECM-kind jazz to almost rock-heavy stuff. Definitely, this is Alex Pavlov’s electric guitar that changes colours and moods from mild to rough. But there are also these great interplays between guitar and bass, and sax and drums. They, despite of lots of jobs and gigs around, stands for that blessed term – ensemble.
Are there any “hits” on this, second, Deep Tone album? I guess, ‘Megalomania’ and ‘Contemplation’ can tell a lot about the band. But, sorry, I have to go to listen to the whole album again. Chances are it would explode."
