Jazz Artist Ilya Serov Releases Second Album, 'Back In Time', Homage To Big Band Era

Back in Time, the second album from up and coming jazz trumpeter and vocalist Ilya Serov, is now available on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, CD Baby, GooglePlay and Apple Music.

Serov's homage to the Big Band Era, Back in Time features the artist's smooth trumpet playing and unique vocal style. The album is highlighted by Serov's collaborations with Grammy-winning percussionist Poncho Sanchez (the sensuous Latin beat of "Tangerine") and pianist Roger Kellaway (the swinging Gypsy jazz of "C'est Si Bon" and classic pop swing of "L-O-V-E") as well as acclaimed sax player Eric Marienthal ("Old Devil Moon.")

Despite his youth, Serov has impressed his fellow musicians.

"(Ilya) is a great, great trumpet player; and I love his voice," Sanchez said. "Ilya has a great thing here because it's commercial enough for the mainstream to enjoy and like, but it's hip enough for the jazz folks to like also because he's a great trumpet player. He can sing the tunes and play them. That's the edge he's got."

Trained at the prestigious St. Petersburg Conservatory, Serov decided to follow his love of jazz, cultivated as a teenager in the Russian city of Saratov, by pursuing his dreams in the U.S. He now is building a following among fans and seasoned players alike as one of the scene's budding new talents.

Serov released his first album September in the Rain, also a big band outing made up entirely of vocal numbers, in 2013. Visit www.ilyaserov.com for more information.
