Libor Šmoldas Organ Trio
jazz and blues
Hammond organ
Guitar
Drums

The most distinguished Czech writer on jazz, the late Lubomir Doruzka noted thatLibor Smoldas most definitely attested to his current standing alongside the finest guitarists of the generation of players in their thirties, words of praise which were duly upheld by the US specialized website All About Jazz, commending the immaculate musical coordination shown by the band in every performance. Its leader's outstanding instrumental and creative dispositions as a guitarist receives a mighty boost from the creative potential of his fellow- players, organist Jakub Zomer and Vaclav Palka on drums. The Libor Smoldas Organ Trio is a continuation of his former quartet which over the seven years of its existence, it has produced three albums, and has played hundreds of gigs on platforms in this country, as well as in the UK, Italy, Poland, Bulgaria, and on tour in the United States.

Daniel Bulatkin Quartet
original sax time
Keyboard
Saxophone
Drums
Double bass

Daniel Bulatkin is a new face on the Czech jazz scene. He was born in 1999 in Prague, where he currently studies high school. When he was 15 years old, he won 3rd place in the prestigious solo piano improvisation competition ‘Pianist of the Year 2015’ organised by the company ‘Petrof’. He defended his 3rd place in the following year of the competition, which was won by Vít Křišťan.

He is a private student of many recognised pianists in the Czech Republic and abroad (Omer Klein, Brian Charette, Vojtěch Eckert, Jiří Levíček etc.) and he also perfects his craft on several workshops (among others with the bebop legend George Cables).

The new jazz ensemble under his leadership formed in August 2016 on a studio session with American players Neil Wetzel (alto sax) and Gary Rissmiller (drums). The original premise of the group was to perform less known compositions of famous musicians of the post-bop era (Bill Evans, Woody Shaw, Herbie Hancock etc.), however, the group now focuses more and more on original compositions of all members. 

The foundation of the band consists, aside from bandleader Daniel Bulatkin (piano), the Dutch saxophonist Cyrille Oswald (or alternation by Andy Schofield (sax, 6.8.), Tomáš Baroš (bouble base) and Marek Urbánek (drums).
