Random musical reunion of old friends in 2007 gave reason to the formation of a band that regularly performs in the AghaRTA jazz club. From Ostrava travels keyboardist Boris Urbánek, a distinctive personality of Moravian jazz, the initiator of the band, drummer Michael Hejna played for the first time already in 1982 in his Jazz Laboratory. In the same year, Michal Hejna met with Štěpán Markovič in the very famous group, ESP, and in big band, Transjazz, with a fellow conservatory student Vít Švec. In 2009, a recording called “There Is Hope” (ARTA Records) was released. You will hear songs from the days of Jazz Laboratory, Urbánek´s tune “The Golden Sunday” and “Hedgehog In The Cage” by Jaroslav Šimíček among others.
