Honored Artist Ruslan Huseynov performed a bass guitar cover on the soundtrack to the film “Once Upon a Time in America” ​​(1984).

The epic crime film was co-written and directed by Italian filmmaker Sergio Leone and stars Robert De Niro and James Woods.

The bass guitar cover of “Deborah’s Theme” has never been performed before. The video featured ballerina Aslana Aliyeva.

Typically, “Deborah’s Theme” is performed by a symphony orchestra. The musician tried to perform “Deborah’s Theme” in an original way, shooting a video with Aslana Aliyeva’s beautiful dance and stills from the film.

Emin Abishov and Lachin Aghasiyev took part in the work on the video. The musician expressed special gratitude for the implementation of the project to People’s Artist Mirjavad Jafarov, Honored Artist Jabir Imanov and sound engineer Toofan (Promıx studio).

In particular, Ruslan Huseynov is one of the participants of many international jazz festivals. He was a member of the musical group “Rast”.

In 2015 he wrote a composition for bass guitar for the first time in Azerbaijan. The music track is called “In Minutes”. A music video was also filmed for the song. It took him two years to write the piece of music.
