The program ``Opera. Jazz. Blues`` includes rousing and lyric jazz improvisations, unexpected arrangements and fantasias on the pieces of classical, jazz and popular music composers. The genre of crossover is a synthesis of different music genres and styles, a fashionable but often risky device. It is only justified when top class musicians possessing a high taste and artistic convincingness venture to experiment in the area. This album is exactly the case.

The musicians came up with an idea of carrying out a jazz/classical experiment a few years ago, but it had to wait to be realized. It took more than a year to select the repertoire, discuss details and make arrangement of Mozart`s Alleluia, Glinka`s Inesilia that doesn`t sound like anything of itself, and the jazz hit Fly Me to the Moon that may seem so unwonted for Hibla Gerzmava. Combining classical depth and aesthetics with jazz harmonies and rhythms, an operatic voice with a swinging trio is not an easy task to accomplish, but Hibla Gerzmava and Trio of Daniel Kramer come through with flying colors.
