...New album "eg" coming soon...
"It is jazz, and it is not jazz. It is modernism, but full of tradition at the same time. It is a semi-improvised, complex musical structure thats swirls with a perfectionistic care about every sound and every detail." (beehype)
The musical collaboration between the accordionist Roman Zabelov and the drummer Jan Šikl began in 2012. Their cinematic music is based on broadly conceived jazz that blends with traditional folk and is crowned by abstract vocals. The acoustic colour, the real-time processing, as well as the richness that goes beyond the genre, all play a significant part. Their earlier work, such as the “Secret Session”, was released at their own expense although their actual debut album “Eg”, which originates from more in-depth studio work and follows the release of the single “Lék”, will be produced under the supervision of Matouš Godík (Hidden Orchestra, Floex) and released in autumn 2018 by the Prague publisher Minority Records on LP, CD, and digital download. The debut album will feature musicians from the Czech jazz scene, as well as other guests, and extraordinary colourful instrumentals.
