When most American jazz buffs think of the Czech Republic, they probably think of bassists George Mraz and Miroslav Vitous or keyboardist Jan Hammer. However, Europeans knowledgeable about the same topic probably think of Emil Vicklický, the acknowledged "Patriarch of Czech Jazz Piano. Known for combining the melodism and tonalities of Moravian folk music with modern jazz harmonies and classical orchestration in a distinctly individual style, Vicklický grew up in the former Czechoslovakia, where his father was a university art professor. He graduated in 1971 from Palacky University.

Together Again is a collaborative album by pianist Emil Viklický and bassist George Mraz. Both these musicians are from the Czech Republic, but Mraz has lived in the US since the 1960s. Recorded at Realistic Sound Studio, it was produced by Siggi Loch and mixed by Klaus Scheuermann. Theme From 5th Part of Sinfonietta". A Bird Flew By". "U Dunaja u Prešpurka". Moon, Sleeping in a Cradle".

Emil Viklicky and Venus Records are pleased to announce the release of Emil's latest CD, Sinfonietta~The Janacek of Jazz (VHCD 1034). Eleven of its dozen tracks were recorded at Avatar Studios in New York last year with George Mraz on bass and Lewis Nash on drums. The twelfth track, "Sinfonietta," recorded in Prague in 2007 with Mraz and Laco Tropp on drums, originally appeared on the CD Moravian Gems (CubeMetier 2007). Janácek was inspired by Moravian and Slavic folk music, which he incorporated in a modern, highly original synthesis. His work attained its mature form first in the 1904 opera Jenufa (often called the "Moravian national opera"), and later with the symphonic poem Sinfonietta, and other chamber works and operas. A century later, Emil, like Janácek, has taken the music of his native Moravia and melded it into a larger mainstream, in this case American-style jazz.

Viklicky won more prizes and ultimately a scholarship to study composition at the Berklee College of Music in Boston. So it was that he spent five years in the American system: "I learned everything you need to know there: the fundamentals of composition and arrangement, but also what it takes to succeed as a professional musician," he recalls. Back in Prague he reaped the benefit of that: Viklicky was not only the best jazz pianists in the country, he was also one of the most celebrated film music composers, one of the most formative teachers, one of the most important neoclassical.
