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

Roman will be recording new album "NYC Session" at Michael Brorby’s studio in Brooklyn on 11 and 12 April 2016. It will consist of own compositions and the sound will be carved also by great American musicians. One of the best jazz drummers Byron "Wookie" Landham will sit behind the drums. Byron collaborated with renowned musicians, such as the organist Joey DeFrancesco or the legendary organist and pianist Shirley Scott. Frank Basile will play the baritone saxophone. Frank plays with famous jazz orchestras (The Vanguard Jazz Orchestra, The Dizzy Gillespie All-Star Big Band, The Jimmy Heath Big Band...), as well as with current pop stars like Michael Bublé. The trio will be complemented by a phenomenal player on the hammond organ – Pat Bianchi, whom the musical critics of the renowned magazine Downbeat gave the title "Rising star" for the year 2015. Pat plays for example with the jazz-guitar icon Pat Martino and saxophone legend Lou Donaldson. “I've always played American music and recoding of the jazz album with excellent musicians in New York City is therefore the step in the right direction in my music career. I want to create an album without compromises.” Album NYC Session will be supported by a concert tour. It be released in autumn of 2016. It is yet to be seen if Roman Pokorný will get another Angel”award in the category of "Jazz".
