"Tarasov's intellectualized percussion - rich moods are imperceptibly born from tiny details." Virgil Mihain / "Russian Jazz New Identity", Quartet books, London
"He doesn't want to interfere with the process, the flow of ispiration, coming from within himself. There is a stream of subconsciousness, or consciousness, that he doesn't want to disturb." Howard Mandel / "Down Beat", USA
"Enriching the part of the main instrument he brought forth devilish rhythms from any thing which happened to come across his hands - from bells, cocktail shakers, gongs and even tin box." Francis Davis / "Atlantic Journal", USA
"Vladimir Tarasov a drummer of rare subtlety and cunning, takes sensual delight in the very touch of his extensive array of instruments, from finger chimes to cymbals. He is also a master of decorative brushwork." Nat Hentoff / "The Wall Street Journal", USA
"It is a credit to Tarasov's sensitivity and creativity that this obvious play is utilized with such subtlety." Milo Fine / "Jazz Forum", Poland
"Tarasov was virtuosic with one drum stick on a small hand-held disc." Mary Campbell / "Associated Press", New York
"Along drum solo, which Tarasov littered with hushend, chopped - of sounds as if trying to restrain his exubererance." John Fordnam / "The Guardian", London
"Vladimir Tarasov - wove exhilarating patterns through the most demanding tempos." Geoff Chapman / "The Toronto Star", Toronto
