Triology

Jazz formation Triology presents acoustic concept of a piano trio. This project started after a long collaboration of these musicians with soloists such as Martin Uherek or Lukáš Oravec. Founding members of the trio are pianist Jakub Tököly and double bassist Peter Korman. Their admiration and respect for jazz tradition and geniuses of European classical music influenced these them in such a way, that they decided to create their own project, in which they could incorporate all these aspects, thus realizing their musical vision together through musical interaction.

Each of the members has collaborated with many renowned artists of the jazz scene, but their main shared idea is to create music that is connected to the present era, while at the same time remebering the history and development of musical composition and interpretation.

Progressive colorful playing of pianist Jakub Tököly, combined with an earthy sound and swinging pulse of double bassist Peter Korman and in symbiosis with dynamic and expressive support of drummer Peter Solárik, Nothing but New trio creates an extraordinary musical experience.

The band’s repertoire includes mainly original compositions of the band members, inspired by jazz greats such as Bud Powell, Miles Davis or Kenny Kirkland, African- American gospel music but also melodic delicacy and urgency of the French Impressionism. At the same time the trio enjoys interpretation of the greatest jazz compositions, by Duke Ellington, George Gershwin, Thelonious Monk or Herbie Hancock.

Next year the band is releasing their debut CD, which presents the result of their collaboration over the past year. It features original compositions by Jakub Tököly and Peter Korman. The most significant titles are Nothing New, Nocturne La Nuit and Blues For Monk, as well as arranged jazz standard I Thought about You. Recording took place in recording studio Studio na Orlí in Brno, Czech Republic.

Nothing but New trio also enjoys cooperation with an alto saxophonist from a famous Roma musical family, Jan Fečo. This young musician brings energy, virtuosity, sense of melody and is gradually becoming an unmistakable element of the band.
