Recording Arts news (2020)
  • Finished rather challenging mix and master of Lukas Oravec Orchestra in 2020 entitled "Light of Blue". This is a group of young, outstanding jazz big band musicians from Central EU presenting their original works in memory of Rostislav Fras, Czech tenor saxophonist, who left us way too soon. You can read a nice review of it here.
  • My collaboration with Adam Booker, jazz bassist and composer from Appalachian State University in Boone, NC, has rendered a nice CD album release. Not only I performed on this studio release, but also mixed and mastered it to analog tape. You can read a review of it here.
  • Finished a mix and master to tape of "Sperkasa" - fabulous group of London-based jazz musicians lead by percussionist and drummer Marek Dorcik. You can learn more about it here.
