A truly rare union of two exceptional musical personalities, which already promises an extraordinary cultural experience

At the end of April this year, singer Jan Smigmator will perform as the first ever Czech jazz vocalist in New York's legendary Carnegie Hall. Accompanied by the American jazz league, he will sing the most famous songs of the Great American Songbook, which have always been the mainstay of his repertoire.

For his solo debut in the world's most prestigious concert hall, he invited pianist Jan Steinsdörfer, Hammond organ player Jan Andro and members of Tony Bennett's accompanying quartet to collaborate. (Gray Sargent - guitar, Marshall Wood - double bass, Harold Jones - drums). This exclusive jazz formation will be complemented by one of the greatest tenor saxophonists of all time, the American swing matador Scott Hamilton, with whom Jan Smigmator recorded an album dedicated to the work of the Gershwin brothers in 2018. After his debut at Carnegie Hall, Smigmator in the company of Scott Hamilton will follow up with a concert series in the Czech Republic, during which he will also visit Prague.

He will thus return to the Hybernia Theatre with his solo concert after exactly nine years. In December 2014, he performed here with great success and sold out the theater to the last seat as part of the "SWING Gala" project, accompanied by Felix Slováček's Big Band and American trumpeter Jumaane Smith.
