Modern jazz performed by Josef Vejvoda Trio (piano, double bass, drums).
The Josef Vejvoda Trio was founded in 1998 by Josef Vejvoda (son of the composer of the world-famous „Beer Barrel Polka.“), a top-ranking drummer in many projects on the Czech jazz scene.
The trio mostly perform their own compositions variously written by all three members with influences coming from the area of jazz as well as from classical music. They have made numerous recordings on compact disc and for radio and television; and they have appeared in many concert halls both in the Czech Republic and abroad.
Among the many they have accompanied is American jazz trumpetist Benny Bailey. A recording of that performance has come out on the compact disc A Meeting to Build a Dream On, and in a Czech Radio poll it was selected as the best Czech jazz album of 2001.
In 2003 they brought out the compact disc One Minute Dance with original compositions of all three members of the trio, some of which can also be heard in the film Victims and Murderers.
