Libor Šmoldas Organ Trio
Prague is home to one of Europe's top jazz guitarists, Libor Šmoldas. Besides leading Czech and European musicians, he has worked, toured and recorded with international stars such as bassists Jay Anderson and George Mraz, drummers Jeff Ballard and Adam Nussbaum, organists Sam Yahel, Ondřej Pivec and Brian Charette and legendary saxophonist Bobby Watson. Libor’s concert activities span four continents—Europe, the USA, Australia and China—in cities like New York, Dublin, Sydney, Beijing, Istanbul, Berlin, Amsterdam and London, in the world’s most prestigious jazz clubs like Pizza Express, Iridium, Dear Head Inn, Bennett’s Lane, Smalls and Blue Note. Libor has released multiple albums both as leader and sideman. Still young, at the age of 36, Libor is widely considered to be one of the best jazz musicians in the Czech Republic and a leading representative of his generation. Critics appreciate his smooth, melodic approach backed by his apparent love of jazz. The Libor Šmoldas Organ Trio will surprise you with its positive energy with which the musicians play their own originals inspired not only by the jazz tradition but also by blues, funk and soul. It’s a classic Hammond organ trio taken to a modern-day musical expression, yet keeping the tradition of this wonderful set up. Libor Šmoldas – g; Jakub Zomer – org; Marek Urbánek – dr.
