After studying the Bayan, a Russian Accordian, he received a guitar for his 16th birthday from his brother. Zhenya came to the U.S. in 1999 and took up American Jazz under the tutelage of talented guitarists from Wisconsin to Denver to Southern California.

Camarillo-based guitarist Josh Meehan has loved Jazz since hearing John Coltrane as a teenager. He has played in many local ensembles including Pacific Standard Time with Joe Horswell, Paul Brown Quartet, and ‘Nuff Said. His influences include Joao Gilberto, Bill Frisell, Thelonious Monk, Doc Watson, and Nels Cline. More info at http://www.zhenyarocks.com/Main.html
