On the playground

The young (25 years), guitarist Libor Šmoldas, a member of the increasingly popular Organic Quartet, records and releases his debut album called On The Playground. He put together a the trio of musicians of his generation. Along with him there is organist Ondřej Pivec and Polish drummer Lukasz Zyta, passing longtime collaborator David Dorůžka and Jaromir Honzák. The album includes 6 originals and an two standards: „Valse Hot“ and Sonny Rollins' „Just One Of Those Things“ written by Cole Porter. The lightness and playfulness with which the band presents Libor own and inherited music resonates fully with the best traditions of the organ trio as a specific band in the history of the jazz. Sound engineering was provided by Luke Martinek, who collaborated with Organic Quartet. Also, this album is based on the new jazz-oriented independent label Animal Music. The cover of this album is the work of graphic designer Ales Najbrt. The album comes first October, exclusive distribution by SONY BMG Music Entertainment.
