In Moscow "Golden Palace" casino a concert took place, dedicated to revival of a legendary "Arsenal" ensemble. Arsenal was the first professional group in USSR to play really contemporary music. Their style constantly changed: from classical jazz-rock in the footsteps of "Blood, Sweat and Tears" to funk-fusion. Leader-sax player and composer Alexei Kozlov any forms were tried: from suite to break-dance performed by musicians themselves. "Arsenal" gave birth to careers of many outstanding musicians and bands.

In the concert 6 classical jazz pieces were performed. Let's guess, what style will be playing in revived "Arsenal" and what surprises to anticipate from them.
