Only a select few Czech musicians can claim the honor of being nominated for a Czech Music Industry’s Anděl Award for every one of their albums. One of them is the pre-eminent Czech bassist Tomáš Liška, now releasing his fifth album, ‘Hope’ with his group.

As with his previous releases, Liška offers a canvas of pure, transparent instrumental music structures built on strong, captivating melodies rather than bringing attention to elaborate solos.

The resulting musical space allows for elegant, free improvisation, benefiting from a rich palette of moods created by Liška’s outstanding international ensemble: the Serbian accordionist Nikola Zarić, the Turkish violinist Efe Turumtay, and the phenomenal Czech drummer Kamil Slezák.
