Vitali - One can’t help being impressed by your technical ability as a musician.

Vitali’s style probably best described as fusion rock or fusion jazz. I’m also quite taken by how fluid Vitali’s delivery sounds. The fact that Vitali T surrounded himself with other like-minded musicians who are similarly talented allows Vitali T Project to explore musical terrain that would be off limits to lesser musicians. The songs itself features a solid structures, and the melody lines is quite memorable. This is important! All the technique in the world won’t sound that impressive if the song isn’t good. Songs flow smoothly from start to finish and feels quite satisfying emotionally.

Vitali's new album is burnin'. He has killer chops and lots of amazing tones. His composing is clever and sophisticated. If you're into guitar, check this one out.

In my opinion, record “Sides” by Vitali T Project is very impressive and great debut! After all that, probably, will be not that easy to move ahead with such fine level of playing and composing. With all the heart I wish you new interesting ideas and success! Good luck Vitali!

The Vitali's debut album is a great work for an indie musician. it show mature compositions, nice guitar skills and interesting arrangements, plus the album mix is well done. Now I'm so curios to listen his next solo work.

The generous helping of 12 tunes on “Sides” showcases Mr. Tkachenka’s ability to demonstrate a wide range of expression. There is a true feeling of joy and happiness that comes out of the music.

As a friend and former teacher of Vitali's, I am extremely proud of his CD release "Sides". This is not only a great showcase of consistently excellent guitar playing, but also a very musically diverse CD that keeps me interested from start to finish. Way to go Vitali! I'm looking forward to the next one.

With his instrumental CD, Sides, Vitali Tkachenka reveals many dimensions as a composer and guitarist. The combination of versatility and chops makes this a record that's both impressive and a lot of fun to listen to.

Восем гадоў таму беларускі гітарыст Віталь ТКАЧЭНКА, не скончыўшы айчынную прыватную ВНУ, рушыў у ЗША. Бо вырашыў навучацца джазу на яго радзіме. Зараз ён выкладае ў Інстытуце музыкі і медыя ў Атланце — тым самым, які скончыў. Выдаў некалькі кніг па ігры на гітары, безліч метадычных дапаможнікаў — друкаваных, аўдыя- і відэа-, уласны магнітаальбом. З’яўляецца музыкантам — прадстаўніком фірмы, якая займаецца вырабам гітар, музычнага абсталявання і выпусціла імянную ткачэнкаўскую мадэль гітары. Выправіўшыся ў Маскву, ладзіць прэзентацыі вырабаў кампаніі, завітаў у родны Мінск, дзе правёў цыкл майстар-класаў. “К” цікава было даведацца, чым адрозніваецца музычнае і, шырэй, мастацкае навучанне за акіянам.
