BLUE IN GREEN RADIO - 'Away from you' ALBUM REVIEW by Imran Mirza
Milovanović now finds himself firmly embedded within a wave of artists flying the flag for contemporary Serbian jazz.
Recent releases from flautist Milena Jancuric, vocalist and saxophonist Sanja Markovic, saxophonist Max Kochetov and Majamisty TriO each feature extensive Serbian ensembles and have served as fantastic pieces of music to represent the country's burgeoning scene with Jovan Milovanović's 'Away From You' sitting highly amongst this wave of projects.
POLITIKA - 'Away from you' ALBUM REVIEW by Vojislav Pantić
The first strong impression comes from Milovanovic’s great potential as an author. He smoothly flows through various types of today’s mainstream: themes are meticulously shaped and memorable, the groove is moving and modest, and guitar cords provide a warm base for developing appealing musical ideas.
It’s very clear that he had studied at a serious school, but we can’t often hear such great authorial competence in the very first recording.
TWISTEDSOUL - 'Away from you' ALBUM REVIEW by Imran Mirza
'Away From You' not only demonstrates Milovanović's skill as a guitarist but also as a producer presenting tracks masterfully composed with buckets of personality.
A brilliant piece of work that will hopefully inspire further releases.
SK JAZZ - 'Away from you' ALBUM REVIEW by Jan Hocek
The album Away from you is the author's personal story, in eight songs (one is in two versions) he reflects his life experiences, experiences, and the influence of important jazz personalities. The result is a relaxed, positively tuned recording fueled by a mixture of hard bop and grooves.
Inspirations are metamorphosed in an extremely original way!
TIME MACHINE MUSIC - 'Away from you' ALBUM REVIEW by Branimir Lokner
Pojava Jovan Milovanović Quarteta je ne samo na domaćoj več i internacionalnoj sceni “prava” stvar, a “Away From You” je moderno ostvarenje koje vrlo mudro spaja neka starija viđenja sa novim vremenom, novim tendencijama, nudeći autentično viđenje jazz forme, koje će verujem od strane ovih aktera, tokom vremena biti dalje razvijano i usavršavano.
The appearance of the Jovan Milovanović Quartet is a "real" thing not only on the domestic and international scene, and "Away From You" is a modern achievement that very wisely combines some older views with new times, new tendencies, offering an authentic view of the jazz form, which I believe will by these actors, to be further developed and perfected over time.
Milovanović and his excellent quartet consisting of Aleksandar Cvetković on drums, Kristijan Mlačak on tenor and soprano sax and Milan Nikolić on acoustic and electric bass - both collectively and individually they are at a very high level.
