David Dorůžka: electric and acoustic guitars / Josefine Lindstrand: voice / Michał Barański: bass / Łukasz Żyta: drums and percussion
The guitarist David Dorůžka whose renown has long ago surpassed the borderlines of the Czech scene and whose debut album “Hidden Pahts” (2004) has been crowned with anumber of accolades, has released his second album. It is composed of his own pieces on the poetry of Emily Dickinson (in English), the Czech 20th-century poet Jiří Orten (in Czech) and on the lyrics of the Swedish singer Josefine Lindstrand (in Swedish) who joined Dorůžka in the studio and performs in all the three languages on the album. The accompaniment is provided by the Polish rhythmic duo Łukasz Żyta (drums and percussion) and Michał Barański (bass). The intimate and candid music in excellent performance and faultless sound received the “Anděl” Award for the best jazz album of 2008.
