Emil Viklický Trio ft. Miroslav Bukovsky/John Mackey (CZ/AUS)
The famous Czech jazz pianist and composer will play with his trio and with his special guests from Australia: trumpeter Miroslav Bukovsky and saxophonist John Mackey. They will play their own compositions, as well as modern arrangements of jazz standards. “Moving easily between classical and blues styles, Emil Viklický explores interesting harmonic variations. This unique fusion of folk with jazz makes for a very engaging program, one that manages to be both fresh yet familiar at the same time.” – John Adcock (Jazz Journal UK). "One of the best contemporary pianists, Viklicky´s soloing and comping, his touch, voicings and intervals have a good deal in common with fleet, tasteful pianists like T. Flanagan, J. Rowles and B. Charlap". – Doug Ramsey (JazzTimes). "Emil Viklický Trio has the same collective energy as Esbjorn Svenson Trio, though without electronics and rock input". – John Fordham (The Guardian) (p; b; dr).
