Robert Balzar Trio: One Day

rbt4

Following in the footsteps of great Czech bassists such as Miroslav Vitous and George Mraz, bandleader, innovative composer and bassist Robert Balzar demonstrates fine bass technique along with focused and strong support by pianist Jiri Levicek and drummer Kamil Slezak in their new project One Day. Originally recorded for Czech Television as a live concert in a forest, the project features trio’s own compositions and adapted jazz standards.

Robert Balzar is a leading Czech bassist who has played with Joe Newman, Benny Bailey, Tony Scott, Benny Golson, Wynton Marsalis and John Abercrombie amongst others. In the Czech Republic he has collaborated mainly with the legendary Czech chanson singer Hana Hegerová and with singer Dan Bárta. In 1996 he formed the Robert Balzar Trio which was awarded the Best Czech Group of the Year in 2000. His recordings Travelling and Alone both became the Best Czech CD of the Year while Overnight was nominated for the Czech Grammy Awards.
