The show provided a wonderful talk with  Internationally trained Pianist, Vlad, originally from Uzbekistan and  which  included  the  powerful role that his son played in the creation of this special album. The CD features 12-year-old drummer Aleks Girshevich with legendary bassist Eddie Gomez and veteran pianist  and proud father, Vlad Girshevich.

 Comments :

“Pianist/composer Vlad Girshevich is a thrilling and adventurous talent.” – Bass Players United

“Folks on the Colorado music scene have been talking for years about the tremendously talented drummer Aleks Girshevich, who was born in 2001.” – All About Jazz

Algorithmic Society, the debut recording from the Gershevich Trio, brings together three generations of musicians: 12-year-old drum prodigy Aleks Girshevich, his father veteran pianist Vlad Girshevich and legendary bassist Eddie Gomez.  Their mutual respect shines through on this album of originals written by the father and son team with Aleks creating the grooves and Vlad penning the melodies.

The author of a clutch of novels, plays, and short story and poetry collections, MICHAEL MIROLLA describes his writing as a mix of magic realism, surrealism, speculative fiction and meta-fiction. Publications include the novel Berlin (a 2010 Bressani Prize winner); The Facility, which features among other things a string of cloned Mussolinis; and The Giulio Metaphysics III, a novel/linked short story collection wherein a character named “Giulio” battles for freedom from his own creator. Other publications include the short story collection The Formal Logic of Emotion; a punk novella, The Ballad of Martin B.; and two collections of poetry: Light and Time, and The House on 14th Avenue (2014 Bressani Prize). His short story collection, Lessons in Relationship Dyads, which came out last year from Red Hen Press, won the 2016 Bressani Prize. The novel Torp: The Landlord, The Husband, The Wife and The Lover, set in 1970 Vancouver, was published in the Spring of 2016 with Linda Leith Publishing out of Montreal. The short story, “A Theory of Discontinuous Existence,” was selected for The Journey Prize Anthology, featuring the best short stories in Canadian journals for that year; and “The Sand Flea” was a Pushcart Prize nominee. Born in Italy and raised in Montreal, Michael now makes his home in the Greater Toronto Area.
