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.
