The second step of our journey to the east will allow us to discover a record that should have been a classic, it's also the first time we talk about this musician here.
Anatoly Vapirov has an important discography that includes many excellent records, unfortunately they are almost all self-produced and practically not distributed. This is unfortunate because this musician is in my opinion one of the most interesting actual saxophonist.
