Why You Definitely Have To Own This CD:
You’ll get a superb selection of the best modern Czech jazz bands regularly performing at the AghaRTA Jazz Centrum.
You’ll find out the complete history of the AghRTA Prague Jazz Festival.
You’ll be celebrating the 20th anniversary of the AghaRTA Jazz Centrum, the most popular jazz club in Prague.
You’ll receive a CD with an original design by Jiří Votruba.

The AghaRTA Jazz Centre opened on Krakovská street in Prague on 29 September 1991, on the day following the death of one of the world’s greatest pioneers and innovators of jazz, Miles Davis. The centre bears the title of his famous album from 1975. Thirteen years later, on the same day, 29 September 2004, the club moved to a new venue on Železná street. For more than twenty years, the club has been hosting some of the best modern Czech jazz ensembles. This CD contains a representative selection of their music. All the recordings are taken from the catalogue compiled by ARTA Records, our publishing label, featuring in equal measure both old friends and the new faces of Czech jazz. You’ll have the opportunity to compare musicians and composers active on the Czech scene for more than 20 years with those who have only recently begun to earn recognition. The collection also commemorates two legends of Czech jazz: the unforgettable Karel Velebný, who sadly missed playing in the AghaRTA Jazz Centre by a few months but is still with us nonetheless; and “the first lady of Czech jazz”, Mrs Vlasta Průchová, whose regular performances during the first few years of the club’s existence were always superb.
