Tribute to Herbie Hancock and The Headhunters music
What to expect? A delightful blend of jazz, funk, electronica and improvisation transcending the usual genre boundaries and delivered by the highest calibre musicians.
As the brains behind the project, pianist Vít Pospíšil approached drummer Otto Hejnic and from then on there was a clear plan about who else to invite. Lukáš Chejn’s guitar style is synonymous with groove and funk, while nobody can deny bass guitarist Tomáš Uhlík’s status as an infallible pillar on which players can rely to deliver the goods.
Their unequivocal mutual chemistry, however was truly put to the test during many years of collaboration as part of Jazz Efterrätt. Later they invited one of Europe’s leading solo trumpet players - Jan Hasenöhrl - to join their funk-fuelled rhythmic frenzy, who brought with him a delightful blend of polished classic technique and refined jazz solos as well as experienced saxophonist David Fárek.
