VLATKO STEFANOVSKI picture
Vlatko Stefanovski (b. 1957) is a virtuoso ethno-rock jazz fusion guitar player from the Republic of Macedonia.

Born in Prilep, he started playing guitar at the age of 13. Stefanovski was one of the founding members of Leb i sol with whom he recorded 13 albums between 1978 and 1991. He currently splits his time playing with his VS Trio, in an acoustic partnership with Miroslav Tadić or composing for film and theatre.

Stefanovski has played a wide variety of guitars, including a Gibson SG, a Fender Stratocaster - heavily modified with Schecter and Radulović parts, a Telecaster, a Radulović super-strat and a Pensa-Suhr super-strat. The influence of ethnic and folk music of Southeastern Europe and more specifically of the music of the Republic of Macedonia are recognisable in his occasional use of odd meters (5/4, 7/8) and non-traditional scales (e.g., the Phrygian dominant scale).

1967/ 1976
"Trio is a good Rock album in Classic Fusion field. Recorded by Leb i Sol's axeman with Mihail Purushev (drums, percussions) and Aleksandar Pop-Hristov (bass) and therefore entitled "Trio", "Trio" present good music. But Jazz? Certainly not all the compositions are Jazz. Sure is not Jazz "Igri Bez Granci", a good Rock but certainly are Jazz "Kalajdzisko oro", "Ne Ssi go prodavaj koljo" and "7/8 oro", three Macedonian traditionals. Electric guitar is the dominant instrument and basically electric guitar influence the style of the album. That not for this is not Jazz. And, incredible, the best of Power Metal song that I listen to in my life is "Ufo", the third track in this album, that present great neoclassic electric guitar and double bass drums with a good Hard Rock/ Fusion intermezzo with a great guitar solo. I wrote: "neoclassical electric guitar" and I repeat: "neoclassical electric guitar". Except for "Igri Bez Granici" and the three traditionals this is the style that Stefanovski use, so that this album is similar to Joe Satriani's albums for style... Extremely similar. Not for this "Trio" is a tribute to Joe Satriani. Rather "Trio"was composed so unwittingly. Probably "Gluvo Doba" is too close to POP for the presence of vocals but it is true that this is a good piece of modern mix of genres and its complexity (because Gluvo Doba" is not a simple song to be analyzed)is the winning element of this album.

Certainly "Trio" is an album that should be studied thoroughly, but from what I have already written reflected a fundamental thing:"Trio" is a fusion album Because The Compositions are a mix of different genres, especially rock, covered in a jazz key. Therefore, in conclusion, "Trio"is aFusion of Rock album? Hmmm... I do not know. What I can say is that "Trio" is a great album.

1967/ 1976
This is a great compilation of Vlatko Stefanovski's OST. Leb i Sol guitarplayer composed music for "Suicide Guide" (first 3 songs), "Gipsy Magic" (track 4 & 5), "Three Summer Days (from track 6 to 8), "Journey To The Sun" (tracks 9, 10, 11) and "Skyhook" (from track 12 to 14). This compilation is a summary of these experiences.

I do not know these films but the music is good also as simple songs for albums. "Suicide Guide" is the first soundtrack summary on this compilation: "Suburban" is a good song, with tons of magic and feeling as "Taxy Blues" is a strange mix between Funky, R&B and Blues with great bass lines, guitar and sax. "Kisses In The Park" present a good accordion and guitar in a modern POP ballad. "Gipsy Magic" is presented with two tracks, "Gipsy Song" and "Cherga", basically similars to Goran Bregovic soloist songs but with more various sounds and colours. From "Three Summer Days", "Three Summer Days main theme" is a mix between Vangelis and Folk, in a World Fusion full of magic and feeling. "In The Family" is a dramatic slow tempo song with geat synths and acoustic guitar, "New World For Us" is a good Dance/ R&B songs with good vocal lines. "Journey To The Sun", if I'm wrong, is a Turkish film. So the music is a mix between Jazz and Turkish Folk. And the music is dramatic. Interesting the use of clarinet in "Flooded Village". "Skyhook" ("Nebeska Udica") is a dramatic film which speaks of the war in former Yugoslavia. "Skyhook Main Theme" is a dramatc hymn with great powerful and rebellion in its vein! This is a magical song as "In The Shelter" that have more Folk in the vein and "Basket Match" that is more traditional in Fusion view (in Pat Metheny style).

A great compilation, is this. A great example of World Fusion (for music) and movies. At the same time, if, as me, you do not know the films, the music remain great. Wrote with passion and devotion the compositions included in "Kino Kultura" are all magical.
