Charette / Štveráček / Šoltis SPACE TRIO (USA/CZ/SK)
This super trio evolved organically when NYC organist Brian Charette started working in Prague with the Young Lions, Dano Šoltis and Ondřej Štveráček. The trio has its foundations in jazz but uses subtle electronics and mashed-up breaks to defy genres. The chemistry of this great organ trio is sublime. The trio´s leader, Grammy nominated organist Brian Charette, has become an integral part of the New York jazz scene in the last 20 years. Brian has recorded and played with everyone from Joni Mitchell to Lou Donaldson. He was named runner up in the Downbeat 2012 Critics Poll in the category "Organ: rising star" and he has been writing regularly for Keyboard Magazine for the past 2 years. The extraordinarily gifted tenor saxophonist, Ondřej Štveráček enjoys the freedom of jazz with the same exhilaration as the remaining up-and-coming Czech musicians. He has collaborated with many outstanding musicians: Jerry Bergonzi, Dave Liebman, George Mraz, and Joe Cohn. His CD, What’s Outside was nominated for an Anděl in 2012 as "The Best Album of the Year". Dano Šoltis is one of the most sought-after drummers on the European scene because of his energetic, flexible yet sensitive style. He is a founding member of the top Czech jazz group, Vertigo, which won an Anděl for their debut album.
