about

Korinek-Najponk GrooveKeepers is a convergence of musicians who share the love of Blues, Jazz and Soul music. This combination of some of the finest musicians in Europe brings together freedom of creative expression along with deep respect for the tradition and the feeling of the music. Lead by blues man Jan Korinek on Hammond Organ, together with Najponk on piano, Osian Roberts (UK) on sax, drummers Marek Urbanek and Tomas Vokurka, they will take you on an alive and enlightening ride, deep into your souls.

This record is a spontaneus meeting on two afternoons in the spring of 2016. Enjoy!

We thank you for supporting us, you will help us create BLACKTOWN SESSIONS VOL 2 in the spring of 2017!

Jan Korinek’s musical style evolved from pure blues roots into a soul-jazz-funk feeling with strong blues influences, exploring and presenting the roots of this great music. He is a performer and multi instrumentalist who never gives less than everything he has each time he takes the stage. Over years of touring, recording and surviving in the music business ensure that his soul has stories to tell filled with the blues as well as humor.

Najponk's music comes directly from the roots of jazz, i.e. the blues and a swinging rhythm. His playing is a distinctive rendition of classic jazz without any needless avant-garde experiments. It is rich in inventiveness, virtuosity and enthusiasm. He belongs among the "storytellers", which is the higest achievement in the world of music. His own compositions greatly reflect the development of the jazz tradition within its original rules.

Since embarking on a career as a professional saxophonist in his teens, Osian Roberts has performed in over twenty five countries worldwide, gaining experience with such jazz giants as Cedar Walton, George Mraz, Peter Ind, Hod O'Brien, and Peter Washington, and developing in the process a unique voice on his instrument that is firmly rooted in the bebop tradition.
