On his new album „Invisible Faces“, released by Animal Music, bassist and composer Tomáš Liška returns to the style and sound of his successful project „Invisible World“ (2009), being supported by Serbian accordeonist Nikola Zarić, Turkish violinist Efe Turumtay, legendary Czech guitarist David Dorůžka and Czech percussionist Kamil Slezák.
This album has been nominated for the Andel award 2014 (Czech grammy) in the Jazz & Blues category.
It is the third nomination in a row for Tomas Liska’s solo CD’s.
The music unites the improvisational, classical, as well as song and jazz forms, working with contrasting layers and sounds, with space in the compositions, all of which creates a balance across these genres.
