David Dorůžka/Robert Fischmann/Martin Novák
Often lauded as one of the leading figures of the Czech jazz scene, David Dorůžka has been active as a professional musician from the age of 14, having played concerts all over the world, collaborating with many of today’s leading musicians, and having spent extensive periods in New York and Paris. After recent collaborations with the likes of Lizz Wright, Jeff Ballard and Hilmar Jensson, Dorůžka teams up this time with flutist Robert Fischmann and drummer Martin Novák to develop music inspired by various Jewish cultures, an endeavor which Dorůžka already started on his 2016 award-winning album Autumn Tales. The trio takes great liberties in incorporating elements of Jewish music, and so it easily happens that traditional Chassidic chants are followed by metalcore, and melodies from Medieval Spain are heard next to sounds inspired by the contemporary New York scene.
