The saxophone player and composer Luboš Soukup is one of the leading exponents of the young Czech jazz generation which he has been successfully representing in Denmark, his new home of several years. In the Czech Republic he has been known above all as member of the Czech-Polish quintet “Inner Spaces” (the holder of the prestigious “Anděl” Award for the best jazz album of 2012), of the progressive big-band “Concept Art Orchestra” (the holder of the same award in 2015), of the “Points” formation and a number of other projects. Soukup recorded this album together with his Scandinavian quartet and a special guest: the guitarist and singer Lionel Loueke who has collaborated with such luminaries as Herbie Hancock, Sting, Cassandra Wilson, Santana, Marcus Miller and Terence Blanchard. Soukup’s compositions recorded in the exquisite performance of his band boosted by Loueke’s sensuous energy offer an extraordinary musical experience.
