Album Notes
Sketches is a tenor player’s delight. The Coltrane influence is something I love hearing. The passion and spirituality in the music is moving. Also Ondrej’s soprano sound is other worldly and adds a great musical ingredient. Jerry Bergonzi (Jazz Saxophone Legend)

“When Ondřej Štveráček picks up his tenor sax, people tend to stop what they’re doing and tune in. His standout bebop playing, heavily influenced and inspired by John Coltrane, has become something of a showstopper… PRAGUE POST

The extraordinarily gifted tenor saxophonist Ondřej Štveráček enjoys the freedom of jazz with a similar exhilaration as other up-and-coming Czech musicians. He has been a regular member of Gustav Brom Big Band for many years now, has collaborated with the most outstanding young musicians from both the Czech and Slovak Republics as well as with artists from abroad (Jerry Bergonzi, Dave Liebman, George Mraz, Joe Cohn). Apart from activities as a sideman, he focuses primarily on his own concept of playing the saxophone, undoubtedly inspired by the jazz tradition.
Coltrane´s Sheets of Sound concept percolates through Štveráček´s phrasing and his tone resembles that of his idol’s as well. Coltrane and Štveráček also share great horn control and flawless technique. Štveráček is never intimidated by breakneck tempos, odd meters or complex harmonies. Even though one would be hard pressed to find a better teacher than Coltrane, Štveráček has recently been drifting further apart from his influence to find his own voice to the great benefit of himself and his listeners. He has already put out two albums with his band and is touring all major destinations in Central Europe. Both his debut What´s Outside and sophomore release The Form have garnered critical acclaim.
No wonder Ondřej Štveráček has picked out Gene Jackson to enhance his line up to let his saxophone shine and easily blend into the group´s chemistry. (JAZZFEST BRNO 2015)
