A formation of progressive jazz musicians, nowadays situated in various parts of the Czech Republic and Europe (Brno, Prague, Helsinki, Basel), originally formed in the dynamic environment of the Janáček Academy of Music Arts in Brno. The original repertoire, the straight and energetic interpretation, the intense musical statement reminds us of the inspirations of The Bad Plus or John Zorn. In 2018, the band released its debut album entitled 'Tyče nevyhnutelné' (Championship Music), for which it was awarded 3rd place in the ČRo JAZZ Czech Jazz Harvest 2018. The debut album contains compositions by the group's leader Pavel Zlámal, which classify the album as contemporary modern jazz. Certain inevitable overlaps beyond this framework point to Zlámal's generally unbridled approach to creation, which de facto represents his life credo. The band released its second album (double album) 'Anchors & Hearts' at the end of 2020 on Ma Records.
