McCoy Tyner Quartet at Prague Castle, Wakushoppu 0.3 in Café v lese & more

This week starts with quartet of longtime John Coltrane sideman, pianist McCOY TYNER (with Gary Bartz - alto sax, Gerald Cannon - double bass, Eric Gravatt - drums; update - on drums was Francisco Mela and Bartz played also curved soprano. Highlight for me was Tyner's ballad Search For Peace, last piece before encore. I believe concert video will be soon available at jazznahrade.cz under Zaznamy z koncertu flag) in palatial Spanish Hall of Prague Castle on Monday, April 11. On Tuesday, there is great postbop quartet of virtuoso tenor saxophonist Ondřej Štveráček at Jazz Dock (with his Slovak bandmates Ondrej Krajňák - p, Tomáš Baroš - db, and Marián Ševčík - dr), who released very fine album What's Outside (Cube-Metier) last year, and Swiss CHRISTPH STIEFEL INNER LANGUAGE TRIO at Jazz Time same day.
