Four in Blue /CZ/
The band leader Radek Zapadlo (Vilém Spilka Quartet, Cotatcha Orchestra, Ondřej Ruml and Matej Benko) set up the band inspired by the legendary recordings of Jimmy Smith Back At The Chicken Shack and Midnight Special. He got surrounded with equally experienced players so that the band's lineup would respect the original recordings. Kristian Kuruc (rising jazz star from JAMU Jazz department) plays the drums, Vladan Ronner (Mulligang, Milan Kašuba Trio etc.) on the Hammond organ, Vilém Spilka (known not only as the head of his own jazz quartet but also as the artistic director of two major festivals JazzFestBrno and Strings of Autumn) on the guitar and frontman Radek Zapadlo plays the tenor saxophone. The repertoire of the band is dominated by earthy blues accompanied by jazz standards.
