Doug Hammond & Jiří Slavík (USA/CZ)
Doug Hammond and Jiří Slavík met not long ago, but their collaboration already sounds like they’ve known each other for decades, in part due to their shared comprehensive view of art. Drummer Doug Hammond played with some of the greatest names in jazz such as Charles Mingus and Sonny Rollins. As a composer he came up with a highly individual and original sound based upon rhythmic spaces and melody; harmony plays a secondary role here. His music derives from life-long experience and continuous research. Slavík, who is two generations younger, through this cooperation gets directly to the source of musical wisdom, authentic sound and natural creativity. Doug Hammond – dr; Jiří Slavík – p.
