Classical jazz in all his shapes and ways, played with elegance, grace, and panache. And in legendary Reduta, which gives a new dimension to every jazz concert with its authentic way.

He played piano since age five – and when he came to Thelonious Monk Institute, „a factory of talents,“ in 2001, he has already played with the best jazzmen. Let’s mention Barry Harris, Herbie Hancock, Terence Blanchard, Kenny Barron, Bobby Watson or Jimmy Heath.

Danny has traveled all around the world, from South Africa to Columbia, from Japan to France. During his career, he was a partner for the stars of the stars, The Mingus Big Band, Marcus Strickland, Steve Nelson, Roye Hargrove.
Patrizia Ferrara is a singer of unbelievable charisma and charm. je zpěvačkou nevšedního půvabu a charisma. Her peculiar singing contains all elements of classical jazz, but also other forms of European music and German jazz tradition. She is working with Danny Grissett and singer Dean Bowman since 2005, and they have astonished the audience during their American tour. Patrizia was a jewel of many important clubs and festivals all around the world, for example Blue Note NYC, Brooklyn Academy Of Music NYC, Joe Zawinul's Birdland, Austrian General Consul Rabat Morocco 2013 &2015, Le Pietri Rabat Morocco, Porgy & Bess, Vienna City Festival 2004, and many others.
Tomáš Baroš is a real master of Czech double-bass playing. He was a jazz enthusiast since his youth, and has played with many important Czech jazzmen, for example Emil Viklický, or Radovan Tariška. In 2003, Tomáš has won International Junior Jazz award, and is praised ever since. In 2012, he's won the International Jazz Prix Competition Award for his elegant play, and has recorded more than 40 CDs as a sideman. In this moment, Tomáš plays together with Gene Jackson, Brian Charrett, Tony Lakatos, Joe Cohn, Kalman Oláh, or Paul Bollenback.
Most of the drummers adopt the style and get used to it – but that’s not the case of Gene Jackson. His every performance is unique, he is simply adjusting the tempo and genre of his colleagues. As he said: I follow where the music takes me as opposed to dictating where the music goes."…I follow where the music takes me as opposed to dictating where the music goes.“
Gene, born in 1961, was among others best musicians of his generation from the very start. Even at Berklee College of Music in Boston, his roommate and later co-worker was Branford Marsalis, Marvin Smith or Billy Kilson. He had moved to New Yorl later and during next ten years he was getting his reputation among the best player from the West Coast of the USA. Hugh Masekeal, Greg Osby, Terence Blanchard, Andrew Hill and dozens of others were pleased to meet Jackson’s enthusiasm and professionality. No concert was a routine for him, he has been stylish, inovative and simply perfect from the beginning.
In 1991, Gene has met a bassist Dave Hollander, and they have collaborated for the next ten years in one of the greatests jazz trios of their time: The Herbie Hancock Trio. They yearned for new styles and perfect interpretation, and it was this desire that connected Hancock, Holland and Jackson and made their shows unforgettable. From the 1996 the trio has changed to the quartet with Craig Handy, the tenor-saxophonist. To the year 2000, the quartet had played all over the world, from Europe to Asia. In that time, Gene was also a member of The Mingus Band or Robin Eubanks Mental Images Group.
A lattest success of his phenomenal carrier was the tour around the Germany and West Europe. He has travelled through the Italy with Antonio Farae, and also Switzerland and France with The Mingus Band. His most fruitful CDs were recorder in Cologne with Stafford James and Alex Sipiagen.
The Czech Republic has appealed to Mr. Jackson a lot – he already played with Ondřej Štveráček last year, and this year will be very special for every fan of a good music. Reduta Jazz Club, one of the greatest European jazz clubs, is just the right place for such launch, and it will be the top of the Jackson’s tour in the Czech Republic.
Solivan has made a name for herself as a hard swinging, passionate vocalist who has a commanding stage presence and is able to captivate audiences with her joyous exuberance and whit. Having performed and recorded with the likes of Christian McBride, Peter Bernstein, Jeremy Pelt, Bruce Barth, Gregory Hutchinson, Jonathan Blake, Xavier Davis, Michael Kanan, Steve Wilson, Gene Bertoncini and Lewis Nash, Solivan has been consistently raising the bar for singers of her generation.
Jordan Richardson at Blinded by Sound concludes "The exquisiteness, expression and sentiment of her singing are supreme. She is well beyond the go-through-the-motions singers of the genre by an enormous margin."
In 2007 Solivan made the move to New York and began to sit in at many of the jam sessions the city has to offer. Smoke Supper Club was her first consistent "hang" and a venue that led to many of her later musical collaborations with Jeremy Pelt, Ugonna Okegwo, and others. Being a part of the scene has been a big part of the learning process and has been the catalyst for musical collaborations with Peter Bernstein, Steve Wilson and Lewis Nash. This visibility and consistency on the bandstand opened doors for gigs at the famed Smalls Jazz Club, Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola, Birdland, The Blue Note, and many others. And have led her to become one of the first call singers on the scene. Later, she has jumped into the big band arena, being unique as the only contemporary female vocalist leading big band.
In Reduta, she will play together with Walter Fischbacher, the man of many jazz faces, master of piano and electric piano and leading figure of Austrian jazz.
Wynton Marsalis, nine times Grammy winner and a first jazzman who obtained Pulitzer's Price, has played in Reduta! The audience of a concert at 20th June was astonished. Mr. Viklický has brought a very special guest for his concert, one of the most genuine trumpeters, composers and lecturers, considered to be the most influential contemporary jazzman - Wynton Marsalis. Another special guest was the co-player of Mr. Marsalis, amazing trumpeter Marcus Printup. The harmony of Marsalis's and Viklický's band was truly unique. We are sure that the concert has instanty become a part of the history of Reduta and jazz itself, such as other concerts in Reduta - of Cecil Taylor, Enrico Rava, or Chris Barber.
