Frantisek Uhlir

Born 24.7. 1950 in Usti n/Orlici in Czech Republic.From 1965 has studied double bass,piano and composition at the conservatory in Brno.During his studies has played at the orchestra of the Janacek's opera-house and at the Brno Philharmonic Orchestra. He graduated the conservatory at 1971 with the concert for the double bass and chamber orchestra by J.K.Vanhal(1739-1813).

The first touch with the jazz was listening to the Voice of America that came on midnight for an hour.In this broadcasting I've heard first the Bill Evans Trio with Scott LaFaro on the bass and I was very impressed not only by his playing, but with the way, how this trio played together. I've really been influenced by everything I've heard, but of course I paid special attention to the bassplayers as Ray Brown,Paul Chambers, Ron Carter and Scott LaFaro.
