Luboš Soukup, one of the leading figures of contemporary Czech jazz, has reunited his band “Points” and enlarged it to a septet. The group features some of the best Czech horn and sax players backed by a brilliant rhythm duo. This exceptional album contains progressive and intimate music on the border between contemporary classical music and free improvisation which the author himself has labelled a “universe of sounds".
