Ondrej Pivec

Primary Instrument: Organ, Hammond B3

Born: March 4, 1984

It was called “Mantis” and they performed occasionally in Prague and around the Czech republic....

”....this music refers to one of the historical jazz models - organ soul jazz, but impresses with its spontaneity, quite rarely heard on our local recordings, in perfect professional achievement”
Dr. Lubomir Doruzka, 2008, MF Dnes

”Predominantly own pieces are truly well-played with a flavour of freshly found understanding, with the joy of sharing the music.
