The Bohemia After Dark Project (UK/CZ): Tribute to the giants of Bop 

This international sextet focuses on authentic performances of both classics and neglected gems from the discographies of pioneering bebop drummer Kenny Clarke (1914-1985) and bassist Oscar Pettiford (1922-1960), either as leaders or sidemen. 

In addition to Clarke and Pettiford, other Giants of Bop featured in the band's repertoire include Charlie Christian, Dizzy Gillespie, Thelonious Monk, Charlie Parker, Bud Powell, Fats Navarro, Tadd Dameron, Wardell Gray, Miles Davis, John Lewis, Horace Silver, Cannonball Adderley and, for the band's "vocal edition", the singers Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald, Carmen McRae and Annie Ross.

The project is named after the Pettiford composition "Bohemia After Dark" and Kenny Clarke's iconic album of the same name (Savoy, 1955), which was also the recording debut for Cannonball Adderley, ushering in a new phase in the development of hard bop. While the title refers to the "Café Bohemia" jazz club that had opened in New York that year, an association with evenings of great jazz in Bohemia's capital city is hard to resist!
