Trumpet and flugehorn player Mr. Julius Baroš and his trio is a very good opportunity to make your Prague visit an experience. Let yourself be embraced with good jazz and snap your fingers to swinging jazz or ballads, projected by scintillating tones of Mr. Baroš. His playful melodic lines and imaginative improvisation flowing out of his horn and with his excellent backing group will make any jazz standard stomp your feet. Just open your ears and let the music do the rest by joining a jazz cruise along the Vltava River.

Tuesday
swing of the 30'

Let yourself be carried away by amazing atmosphere of American 20's and 30's, just like Czech singer and actress Adéla Zejfartová did already back in her years of studies at conservatory of Prague. Her love to the „sunny" music led her to the legendary Original Prague Syncopated Orchestra, where she performs up to the present day and where she met other musicians, who feel amazed by an old music. In 2012 they established Sunny Swing Quintet (or Quartet/Trio). Tonight Adéla will be accompanied by Trio, performing: Václav Tobrman – piano, Antonín Šturma – double bass, Michal Zpěvák – clarinet. You can hear their interpretation and contemporary stylisation of the most famous songs of golden jazz and beginning swing era. With reference to famous American singers of the date, e.g. Ruth Etting or Anette Hanshaw, Adéla will bring you back to feel the authentic atmosphere of the jazz age.

swing and standards

The trio, compound of mature musicians, will play songs from the rich jazz and swing repertoire to create a cosy atmosphere.

Sunday
original sax time

The group originally assembled in early 1995 to perform at the Prague Spring music festival. The current line-up features bandleader František Kop (1959) on saxophones, Petr Malásek (1964) on piano, Martin Lehký (1973) on bass guitar, and Pavel Zbořil (1964) on drums. In its choice of repertoire, the band predominantely relies on writing its own music (Kop, Malásek) distinguished by sophisticated composition treatment of individual pieces, ranging across a wide spectrum of styles and inspired by multiple musical influences (blues, funk, latin, ethno, free). Nonetheless, the band by no means omits jazz standarts and pieces composed by such modern jazz giants as J. Coltrane, T. Monk and others.
