Notes & Reviews:

CONCEPT ART ORCHESTRA is an occasionally performing Czech big band composed of first class Czech jazz musicians, led and conducted by the trumpeter and composer Štepánka Balcarová. Their album called THE PRAGUE SIX contains six first-time recordings of contemporary compositions by young Czech composers who have formed the group of the same name and majority of them are also among the band members. Large original compositions lie at the border of jazz and classical music and use all expression possibilities and perfect interplay of the orchestra, as well as improvisation skills of its individual members.
