After a successful album "Eldorado" and Feelin'The Spirit (Grant Green Tribute) ROMAN POKORNÝ - one of our most respected jazz guitarists, an inventive composer
and producer - plans for this year an interesting surprise...

11 and 12 of April 2016 Roman will be recorded new album at the Michael Brorby studio Brooklin, entitled the "NYC Session". It will be a copyright of the album, whose sound can also sign up to great american musicians. Behind the drums sits one of the best jazz drummers Byron "Wookie" Landham, who in the past collaborated with renowned musicians, such as was the organist Joey DeFrancesco or the legendary organist and pianist Shirley Scott. The baritone saxophone takes Frank Basile, whom to cooperate invite as jazz orchestras of the famous names (The Vanguard Jazz Orchestra, The Dizzy Gillespie All-Star Big Band, The Jimmy Heath Big Band...), so the pop stars of the moment like Michael Bublé. Accompanying the trio complements a phenomenal player on the hammond organ – Pat Bianci, which the musical critics of the renowned magazine Downbeat for the year 2015 the title of "Rising star", cooperates for example with the jazz-guitar icon, which is a Pat Martino or saxophone legend Lou Donaldson.

“I've always played american music and power-assisted articulation of a jazz album with excellent musicians in New York City is therefore the only honest step in the right direction in my music career. I want to do great album without compromise .”

Album NYC Session would be supported by the concert tour, should see the light of the world in autumn 2016. If you for it, then Roman Pokorný taking away its already the second statue of an Angel in the category of "Jazz" it remains to be seen...
