Vertigo Quintet & Dorota Barová
The jazz formation Vertigo Quintet originated around 2002 as a young dynamic group of musicians(Marcel Bárta, Vojtěch Procházka, Oskar Törok, Rastislav Uhrík and Daniel Šoltis) united in their search for an original musical expression. The ensemble which has been an important player on the Czech jazz scene for fifteen years, soon developed its individual, distinctive sound. This album is their second recording (for their debut in 2005 the band received an “Anděl” Award) and it is the result of a collaboration of many years with the singer and cellist Dorota Barová, today a regular member of Vertigo. The result is a fragile and atmospheric music that is highly refined in terms of arrangement and composition. Very listener-friendly, it combines inspiration by free jazz, world music, contemporary classical music and pop music. The album was recorded in Poland in collaboration with the sound engineer Tadeusz Mieczkowski.
