Russian born Olga Bukhalova is a young vocalist with a rich tradition of classical music and opera. She first became interested in jazz when she was introduced to her grandfather’s record collection were she heard Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald and other greats. Later, after hearing the Count Basie Orchestra at Disney hall, she fell truly in love with jazz. Having lived and travelled in Europe for six years, she has a natural love for language, currently being fluent in five. With the ongoing support of her musical partner Benjamin, her family, and her fans, Olga is looking forward to exploring the immense legacy of jazz, rediscovering songs by such geniuses as Strayhorn, Mandel, Ellington, Jobim, and other great composers and then present them for the modern audience.
   Benjamin, raised in the Midwest from a musical family with strong roots in classical music, made his move to Los Angeles in 1987, becoming a fixture in the jazz scene ever since. Some notable artists he has performed with include: Joe Pass, Anita O’Day, Annie Ross, Rosemary Clooney, Ernie Andrews, Barbara Morrison, The Jimmy Dorsey Big Band, Johnny Crawford, Ben Vereen, Red Holloway, Ray Brown, and Rob Mullins.
In addition to performing on numerous recordings and live concerts throughout the greater LA area, Benjamin has toured United States,Europe,Japan and Thailand. Benjamin has also opened for such greats as Joe Zawinul and Tony Bennett, to name just a few. Today Benjamin makes his home in Long Beach, CA where he continues to perform actively and teach all levels of music.
