Mix modern jazz and groove, add a pinch of experiment, season it with a Czech melodic sense and you get a band called Vilém Spilka Quartet.

The conscious musical roots of the quartet members lie in the colorful history of jazz, but their subconscious is trying to emerge to the surface just as vehemently. And because saxophonist Radek Zapadlo, bassist Vlastimil Trllo, drummer Martin Kleibl and guitarist Vilém Spilka also share a penchant for improvisation and transformation of interesting musical material, they logically meet in a band, which allows them to bring their artistic vision to the world unfiltered. The jazz foundation of all the members will be reflected in carefully selected jazz pieces by Wayne Shorter or Thelonious Monk, the uncommon approach to music in their original compositions. All band members like to surprise and inspire each other on and off the band stand, but they enjoy surprising their audience as well, for instance with songs penned by the famous and infamous Czech hitmaker Jan Nedvěd. Of course, there is much, much more to look forward to.

This fairly new quartet was founded in 2013. The combination of saxophone and guitar has always had a unique sound compatibility and is even more outstanding in the presence of a reliable and inventive rhythm section. It features seasoned drummer Martin Kleibl, whose engagements range from the Brno Philharmonic to the multigenre OK Percussion Duo, and a busy bassist Vlastimil Trllo whose services are used by many bandleaders ranging from folk to pop music.
