TOP 7 excerpt remind


:My Top 7 albums of CZ jazz & impro 2o1o:

TOMÁŠ HOBZEK - Stick It Out (Animal Music)
Cyrille Oswald – tenor sax, Dan Tepfer - piano, Tomáš Liška - double bass, Tomáš Hobzek - drums.

When i listened to this album first i forgot completely that was made near Prague. And adventure keeps continuing with Tomáš, Tomáš and Cyrille ~ i dont know Dan much yet. Overall feeling is much like smart modern acoustic jazz, not without intuition. Watch them.

ŘEJ ŠTVERÁČEK QUARTET - What's Outside (Cube-Metier)
řej Štveráček - tenor sax, Ondrej Krajňák - piano, Tomáš Baroš - double bass, Marián Ševčík - drums, Radek Němejc - percussion on Three For Kate, Africa and Get Out Of Town.
Keep meeting Ondřej since years ago, when he played middle period Coltrane almost exclusively. Since then, he found ideal bandmates in Slovakia. His first project as a leader is, no wonder, traneing in straight ahead ;b  Central piece of the album is famous Africa, not to mention beautiful ballads. Once, at Jazz Černošice, Ondřej's quartet used Luboš Šrámek on electric keyboard instead of Ondrej K on acoustic, and it was a different kind of blue. 
Otherwise, these guys  are funniest partners at the bar after the show and did also Jazz at Prague Castle live album (Multisonic 2o11), which has one major minus ~ it is too short.

TEMBRYO (Fluidum Records)
Jan Faix
- piano, synths; Filip
Černý - guitar, live electronics; Jan Kyncl - tenor sax.
Released as free mp3 download and limited edition on USB key in 1o pcs of originally designed big safety matches boxes. 
First class european free improvisation in more acoustic setting than are their actual performances. Try it ;;;

VOJTĚCH PROCHÁZKA TRiO - Amoeba's Dance (Animal Music) 
Vojtěch Procházka - piano; Adrian Fiskum Myhr - double bass; Tore T. Sandbakken - drums.
Trio launched during Vojta's studies in Oslo with former schoolmates. Original compositions plus pieces by Herbie Nichols, Kurt Weill, Paul Motian and Ornette Coleman. On their concerts, they are actually mostly improvising, as you can hear on Procházka's MySpace. And this albums has one of most enjoyable cover arts in Animal Music catalogue.

POiNTS (Animal Music) 
Luboš Soukup - tenor and soprano saxes, clarinet, vocal; Miroslav Hloucal - trumpet and flugelhorn, kalimba; Tomáš Liška - double bass; Tomáš Hobzek – drums and percussion. Guests: Petr Kalfus - alto and soprano saxes; Marcel Bárta – bass clarinet; Jan Jirucha Jr. – trombone; Dorota Barová - vocal; Milan Cimfe - percussion.

I also like their live album from Jazz Getxo (Errabal 2oo9)
