BEATA HLAVENKOVÁ -by Pavel Horák

BEATA HLAVENKOVÁ & KAPELA SNŮ (CZ)

EXTRAORDINARY PIANIST AND SINGER PRESENTING HER SONGS

WITH A REAL DREAM BAND DEEPLY POETIC, IMPRESSIVE, SOMETIMES EVEN INTIMATE SINGING ACCOMPANIED BY THE PIANO, TRUMPET, AND SYNTHESIZERS.

She seems to say goodbye to jazz, well, not really, but don’t expect jazz compositions. With her band, she sounds nearly like a rock band, but Beata is hard to put to any genre category. And we shouldn’t forget her poetry, impressive, sometimes intimate singing accompanied by the piano, trumpet, and synthesizers. Her Dream Band includes her husband and an album producer, Patrick Karpentski, bass guitar player Miloš Peter Klápště, and Oskar Török, trumpet player and drummer.
