如果我们理解的俄罗斯文化是陀思妥耶夫斯基、普罗科菲耶夫、夏加尔以及斯拉夫歌曲的话，那么The Second Approach无疑是深深根植于此的。他们音乐的即兴风格带有鲜明的俄罗斯烙印。
The Second Approach呈现的是似乎很难被定义的音乐，在获得了大量的关注和喜爱之余，也激发了许多争议。乐队由经验丰富的作曲家、钢琴即兴大师Andrei Razin领衔，另外两位成员分别是著名吉普赛乐队Romen的歌手Tatyana Komova，和俄罗斯最重要的低音提琴手之一Igor Ivanushkin。他们的音乐融合了世界音乐、现代创意爵士和当代古典乐等元素。
The Second Approach的灵感源自于21世纪的泛欧主义精神，俄罗斯的传统文化也丰富了其内涵。因此，乐队吸引了很多高水平的音乐家跟他们合作，包括伟大的法国圆号手Arkady Shilkloper，俄罗斯萨克斯风手Oleg Kireyev及其美国同伴Mike Ellis，俄罗斯萨克斯风手Yury Yaremchuk，还有德国鼓手Klaus Kugel和美国长号手Roswell Rudd。
1999年，乐队在成立仅一年之后，就获得了三项俄罗斯爵士记者协会奖（Russian Jazz Journalists Association Awards）提名。
2001年3月，乐队作为表演嘉宾在德国斯图加特参加了俄罗斯著名导演塔可夫斯基（Andrei Tarkovsky）的回顾展，并在德国和俄罗斯发行了专辑《Ex Tempore》。同年，乐队在德国卡塞尔爵士音乐节（Kassel Jazz Festival）和波兰罗兹的Lodz 4 Cultures Festival上演出。
The Second Approach project’s origin is Russian culture, if we mean Fyodor Dostoevsky, Sergei Prokofiev, Marc Chagall and Slavic songs. Their style of improvised music was definitely and unmistakably born in Russia.
What the band performs seems to go beyond standard definitions. It provokes controversy, interest and liking. The leader of the trio is an experienced composer, master of piano improvisation, Andrei Razin. A unique singer, member of well-known Gypsy band “Romen”, Tatyana Komova, and one of the key acoustic bass players in Russia, Igor Ivanushkin, complete the band. The musical arsenal of the Second Approach combines elements of ethno music, modern creative jazz and contemporary classical music.
The ideas of the Second Approach lie in the area of pan-European spirit of the 21st century, enriched by Russian traditions. This is why the idea of work with this trio attracted so many high class musicians, from the French horn great Arkady Shilkloper and sax man Oleg Kireyev to his fellow saxophonists Mike Ellis, and Yury Yaremchuk, drummer Klaus Kugel of Germany, and trombonist Roswell Rudd of USA.
In 1999, only one year after the band was created, it was nominated for Russian Jazz Journalists Association Awards in three categories.
In March 2001, their CD “Ex Tempore” has been released both in Germany and Russia, while the trio performed in Stuttgart, Germany, at filmmaker Andrei Tarkovsky’s retrospective with “In Memoriam Andrei” program. That same year the trio played at Kassel Jazz Festival (Germany) and at Lodz 4 Cultures Festival in Poland.
