New cd

Petr Zelenka will release in september 2008 his long-awaited album Memory Flash. It will feature eight of his original instrumental pieces in performances by world-renowned artists living in Paris, where Petr lived and worked from 2003 to 2007. The ensemble consists of Frenchman Olivier Zanot on soprano and alto saxophone, Israeli Yoni Zelnik on contrabass, and Canadian Karl Jannuska on drums and percussion. The compositions themselves show the influence not only of contemporary jazz, but also Arabic, Scandinavian and Moravian folk music. Zelenka, like David Dorůžka and Jaromír Honzák, his colleagues, friends and frequent bandmates, writes music that blends genres, blurring the borders between jazz and other styles. His rich, intricate, authentic music is thus firmly rooted in the context of Europe’s modern original jazz scene. The album was produced at Svárov studio with the help of sound engineer Lukáš Martinek, and mastered by the renowned Bob Katz at Digital Domain in the USA. The album design is the work of Aleš Najbrt and photographer Václav Jirásek.
