David Dorůžka/Robert Fischmann/Martin Novák & Special Guests:Gilgul CD Release Concert

David Dorůžka/Robert Fischmann/Martin Novák & Special Guests
Gilgul CD Release Concert

Friday 22/09/2023 from 19:00

The trio of guitarist David Dorůžka, flutist and singer Robert Fischmann and percussionist and drummer Martin Novák will present their debut CD Gilgul (the word for "cycle" in Hebrew), released on September 1st on the Animal Music label. For this unique occasion the trio will be joined by three guests who also contributed to the album: saxophonists and clarinetists Luboš Soukup and Marcel Bárta and trombonist Štěpán Janoušek.

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, collaborated with many of today’s leading musicians, and having spent extensive periods in New York and Paris. After recent collaborations with jazz icons Lizz Wright, Jeff Ballard and Hilmar Jensson, Dorůžka teamed up with flutist Robert Fischmann and drummer Martin Novák to explore a sound which is less jazz-centered and more world-oriented. The core of this unusual sounding ensemble is the legacy of Jewish music with its many facets that have evolved on various continents over the centuries. However, the trio takes great liberties in incorporating all these elements, and so it easily happens that traditional Chassidic chants are followed by metalcore passages, and melodies from Medieval Spain are heard next to sounds inspired by the contemporary New York downtown scene. Jewish music is nothing new to members of the band as they have previously collaborated with Israeli musician Yair Dalal and American multi-instrumentalist Alan Bern among others, and Dorůžka’s earlier CD Autumn Tales (selected as the Best jazz album of 2016 by Czech Jazz Radio) bears influences of both Ashkenazi and Middle-Eastern music.

Admission: seating CZK 350, standing CZK 200. There is no need to reserve a seat when purchasing a seating ticket.
