In first half of the evening we will hear Vilém Spilka Quartet followed by Aga Zaryan Trio

8 pm - Vilém Spilka Quartet
The concert will feature the last, fully authorial album Waiting for Tom. The author of all songs is the bandleader, guitarist Vilém Spilka. The inspiration for the songs on the album Waiting for Tom was mainly the children of most of the band members.

Tom is the six-year-old son of saxophonist Radek Zapad and it's not easy – he lives with an autism spectrum disorder. Vilém Spilka Quartet was founded in 2013 and is another in a series of joint musical activities in which Vilém Spilka and Radek participate. Their current work preserves the years of joint playing built, almost telepathic, on the interplay of both musical friends. In addition, the combination of saxophone and guitar has unrepeatable sound compatibility and stands out best in the presence of a reliable and inventive rhythm section. It brought together drummer Martin Kleibl and double bass player Vlastimil Trllo.

Radek Zapadlo – saxophones; Vilém Spilka – guitar; Vlastimil Trllo – bass; Martin Kleibl – drums.

10 pm - Aga Zaryan Trio
Aga Zaryan is currently considered the most famous Polish jazz singer. She has 9 albums to her credit, most of which have been released by the prestigious Universal and Blue Note labels. She has collaborated with names such as Jacob Collier, Freddy Cole, Brian Blade, Geri Allen, Tomasz Stanko, Munyungo Jackson, Larry Koonse and many others.

Her new project is based on original compositions based on the lyrics of the American poet Sarah Teasdale. And compared to previous albums, he shows it in a more intimate light, accompanied by two probably the most sought-after jazz guitarists in Central Europe, Szymon Mika and David Dorůžka. A larger part of this new program will be premiered in Prague, supplemented by songs from previous albums written for her by David Dorůžka and other authors. In general, Aga Zaryan's music is very deeply rooted in 20th-century jazz music, but with its openness, color, expressiveness and intimacy, it is also one of the most progressive on the European continent in recent years.

Aga Zaryan – singing; Szymon Mika – guitar; David Dorůžka – guitar.
