The ensemble will perform original compositions as well as music of modern jazz masters Herbie Hancock & Kenny Kirkland - at times lyrical, at times angular, and always filled with the beauty of rhythm.

"The inspiration for this concert came after my first visit to Prague, which coincided with the rise of International Jazz Day, the project launched by Herbie Hancock in his role as UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador for Intercultural Dialog. It took a few years but the inspiration is finally becoming reality despite the significant hurdles supplied by the visa process. Jan and I originally met in 2014 at Agharta at a show he played there as a bassist in a singer’s band. We spoke for a while after the show and he let me know that he also played alto sax. We exchanged contact information and on the flight home the idea of creating an opportunity for Czech and American jazz artists to collaborate began to take shape in my mind. Bringing Karel Růžička and Ondřej Pivec out from Brooklyn in October of 2015 was kind of the pilot for this idea and this concert coming up on February 18th is the first one where the musicians are coming all the way from the Czech Republic. So I would say, it’s in the spirit of Herbie Hancock’s call for intercultural dialog though jazz that this concert comes about. Also, my mother’s side of the family is Czech so this project is particularly close to my heart."
