The leading jazz pianist Najponk is one of the Czech music scene’s few artists able to harness their poetic prowess to narrate “stories” that are accessible to the broader public, not just to jazz aficionados. He draws directly from classical jazz roots, which is able to present free of excessive experimentation, with distinction and crystalline clarity. Najponk’s music excels in its ingenuity, virtuosity, enthusiasm, and its light-fingered yet sophisticated phrasing. The author himself commented on his piano recital program as follows: “My solo performance will include standards, jazz classics (Eubie Blake, DukeEllington, Victor Young…) and compositions of my own.”
