Raivo Tafenau is no doubt one of Best know Estonian jazz musicians.

His first album “Alone together” was released in 1998. In cooperation with Ricardo Padilla, Sergio Bastos and Estonian top musicians the album “Ice on Ipanema” came out in 2003. Young jazz vocalist and composer Kadri Voorand uses her improvisational skills and strong original expression to create a wide range of contemporary jazz. Voorand has won a plethora of competitions and prizes in Estonia as well as abroad, most recently the Young Jazz Talent of the Year award issued in Estonia. Her debut CD "Tunde kaja" ("Echo of the Feeling") from 2009 features one of the leading saxophonists in Finland and Sony Jazz Award winner Jussi Kannaste. "Voorand's interpretations ranged from whispers, jests and romantic murmurs to smooth, intimate storytelling. Even untranslated language was clear." (AllAboutJazz, Phillip Woolever).
