Favorite Recordings presents Le Polaroid by André Solomko. Born in the Ukraine in 1965 and now based in Finland, Solomko is primarily a rich and engaging personality, but above all, a brilliant saxophonist and true musical aesthete whose contagious passion will not leave anyone indifferent. After beginning a meteoric career in the USSR, fate led him to Finland, where after some difficult years, he started Vinyl Jam, a label/studio/group based in Helsinki that resulted in two self-produced albums between 2006 and 2009. These albums captured the attention of some international collectors, including Pascal Rioux, founder of Favorite Recordings, who immediately felt in love with André's style and analogic sound. Rioux offered to produce André's third album, released in 2012 and titled Où es-tu maintenant? (FVR 070LP). Hailed by some renowned amateurs and tastemakers, this third album also met notable success in Japan, thanks to the support of local label P-Vine Records. True to André's passion for film music and '80s jazz-funk, but also to his tradition of always producing and recording his music in analog, Le Polaroid is a continuation of its predecessor and builds a stylized musical kaleidoscope. Surrounded by a team of talented guest musicians such as Alain Mion (Cortex), Mr. Day, and Finnish singer Stiina, Andre Solomko appears at his best, displaying a subtle sense of melody and remarkable ease for composition. Housed in a deluxe LP in a tip-on jacket.
