History of the club
Igor Butman's club is the assignee of the legendary LeClub and the jazz epicenter of the capital. Opened in February 2007 on Chistye Prudy two months after the closure of LeClub and over the next seven years has repeatedly got on the list of the best jazz clubs in the world according to the most authoritative American magazine Downbeat. In April 2014 Igor Butman's Club on Chistye Prudy returned to its roots: we moved to the premises of the former club Le Club on Taganka (now - the restaurant "Steak'c")! On Taganka, jazz life is again bubbling, important musical events are happening and new projects are being born!
The main actors of the world jazz history acted in Igor Butman's Club: Randy Brecker, Bill Evans, Mike Stern, Dave Weckl, Dizzy Gillespie All Star Big Band, James Moody, Roy Hargrove, McCoy Tyner, Gary Bartz, Christian McBride, Dave Holland , Eric Marienthal, Christian Scott Quintet, Carmen Lundy, Lionel Loueke, Tony MacAlpine, Virgil Donati, Peter Bernstein, Sean Jones - this list can be continued for a long time and will be updated with new names. The most venerable Russian jazz musicians consider it a good tradition to present our new albums and programs. On Mondays, Igor Butman's Big Band plays in the club (by the way, this is the only opportunity to hear the best orchestra of the country on the chamber stage).
