Andrey Polovko, Evgeny Ponomarev, Grigory Voskoboynik and Peter Mikheev have been actively performing together since 2011. While paying tribute to such Jazz Greats as Stan Getz and Charles Mingus, the musicians have always been keen on playing their own original music. The band's performance history also includes numerous collaborations with various vocalists (Johnny Kelvin, Sharlene Hector, Olga Abdullina, Kristina Kovaleva, etc.). In 2017 Evgeny Ponomarev completed his work on Quartet's brand new program consisting entirely of original compositions. The premiere took place on the New Stage of the Alexandrinsky Theater in St. Petersburg. Since then this program have been played at a number of other concert venues and jazz clubs in St. Petersburg and Moscow and became a part of some significant international jazz events, such as «Jazz Across Borders» (2017) and International Jazz Day (2018).
In early 2019 Evgeny Ponomarev Quartet recorded their debut album «N.N. SONG» which will be released on all major digital platforms on June, 27. A week after the release, on the 4th of July, all the music from the album will be performed at this very concert.
