Tribute To Tommy Flanagan On High Quality 180g Vinyl LP!


Russian-born pianist Vladimir Shafranov teams up with Peter Washington on bass and Kenny Washington on drums for this tribute to American jazz pianist Tommy Flanagan.


Vladimir Shafranov was educated in Leningrad Conservatory on violin and piano. Already as a teenager he began playing jazz at the local scene, much to dismay of his teachers. He emigrated to Israel in 1973 and then to Finland in 1974.

While in Finland he was one of the most in demand pianist especially accompanying visiting Americans. Greatly encouraged by many of them to move to New York he did so in 1983 and was very active in Manhattan Jazz Scene playing at clubs such as Bradley’s, Blue Note, Village Vanguard, Village Gate among others. He was a duo partner with bassists like Ron Carter, Red Mitchell, George Mraz, and Buster Williams, led trios with Ron Carter-Al Foster, Rufus Reid, Victor Lewis, George Mraz, and Albert “Tootie” Heath to name but a few.

He also played with many top soloists such as Freddie Hubbard, Dizzy Gillespie, Art Farmer, Clifford Jordan, George Coleman, Pepper Adams and accompanied singers such as Carmen McRae, Ernestine Anderson, Etta Jones, and Jimmy Scott. Since 1998 he and his family settled on Åland Islands and has become one of best-selling jazz pianists in Japan

Recorded at Van Gelder Studio in New Jersey on April 11&12 , 2019.
