The Simpson Trio
blues
Double bass
Drums
Guitar + vocal

The Simpson Trio is a soul blues band that swings. Growing up in Memphis, Ryan Simpson heard a variety of great music, from blues to rock-a-billy to Memphis soul to jazz. He was also able to meet, learn from, and perform with many great Memphis musicians. After several years of playing in local bands and studying music at the University of Memphis, Ryan moved to the Czech Republic and became a part of the Prague music scene. The blues is the foundation of everything the Trio plays, and whether the Trio is playing Otis Redding, Van Morrison, or Nat King Cole, the blues can always be heard.

Otto Hejnic Trio
arranged jazz standards
Piano
Drums
Double bass

The Otto Hejnic Trio is that relatively unusual creature, a drummer-led piano trio. The group hails from the Czech Republic where One, its debut, was recorded in late 2011. It's an impressive first release. The trio—Hejnic, Ondrej Krajňák on piano and Josef Fečo on double bass—proves to be a tight and dynamic unit. The music, all Hejnic's original tunes, displays straight-ahead, Latin and European classical influences combined to create an album of varied moods and tempos performed with a consistently high standard of musicianship. 

The compositions on One move from the gentle, meditative, sound of "Preludium For Angela" to the more aggressive, edgier music of "Labyrinth." The trio is more than capable of matching that movement.

Trumpet and flugehorn player Mr. Julius Baroš and his trio is a very good opportunity to make your Prague visit an experience.
