*** Vinyl LP ***

The jazz pianist, composer and arranger Emil Viklický is celebrating his 75th birthday. This re-edition reflects the prolific, versatile Moravia-born artist’s penchant for folk music, transformed into pieces fortrio plus special guests. The double-bassist František Uhlíř and the drummer Cyril Zeleňák have joined forces with other superb instrumentalists, the violinist Jiří Pavlica (70 this year), the cimbalom player Milan Malina, the saxophonist František Kop, and the singers Iva Bittová (65 this year) and the legendary Věra Domincová. Nine melodious compositions, one of them brand-new, are presented by stellar musicians and adorned by outstanding vocals, which at the socially and musically exciting time of the first release, in 1991, were not paid the attention they richly deserve. The music still comes across as fresh, inspired and inspiring, as clearly attested to by the current CD/LP re-issue, containing retrospective texts and, what is more, featuring photographs on the graphically compelling cover. Moravian folk music as performed by gifted, extraordinarily sensitive artists.
