The band Limited Edition, the founder of which is the pianist and composer Jan Hala, first showed up on the Czech Jazz Scene in 2001. The group had been introduced as a jazz antipode of Hala’s fusion formation Hot Line and this also influenced the acoustic setup - originally with two wind instruments. Outstanding Prague jazz musicians gathered in Limited Edition: Hala brought in a splendid saxophonist Rostislav Fras and a drummer Pavel Razim from Hot Line, bass player Vit Svec and Premysl Tomsicek on trombone are two other jazz celebrities. The junior support, a trumpeter Miroslav Hloucal, extremely talented representative of the forthcoming Czech jazz generation, joined the team in 2005. Hloucal was replaced by Michal Gera in November 2008. The repertoire of Limited Edition focuses mainly on modern jazz with the significant elements of Latin music. Besides Jan Hala’s original compositions the band sticks to the pieces of Don Grolnick, Horace Silver, Milton Nascimento, Ivan Lins, John Coltrane, among other world-class jazz composers.
