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.

Rajnošek B.and
fusion jazz
Bass guitar
Keyboard
Trumpet
El. guitar
Saxophone

Rajnošek B.and  composes and performs his own material. His rendition of jazz connects dominant melody with free-jazz approach. The material is written only by Bharata Rajnošek; he is also the most dominant soloist who uses the different timbre and dynamics of various wind instruments.

As the name suggests, the primary drive of the band is Bharata Rajnošek. A master of almost any wind instrument (especially the saxophone and trumpet) is a graduate from the Konzervatoř Jaroslava Ježka and from a course at the Berklee College of Music. He is a theatre music composer, a co-author of an opera, and an occasional collaborator at the concerts or recording sessions for a number of musicians of all genres.

Other members of the band are Jaroslav Friedl (guitar, also plays in Illustratosphere), Vítek Pospíšil (keyboards), Petr Dvorský (bass) and Otto Hejnic (drums).

B.AND is a group known for their forward motion and inventiveness … they are definitely not afraid of taking musical risks. A stimulating dynamic of interaction and spontaneity assures that the group live performances are always lighthearted and full of surprises.
