Viklicky and Printup in Olomouc

SOURCE: Published:
Marcus Printup New video has surfaced from an engagement that trumpeter Marcus Printup played with the Emil Viklický Trio during Printup's visit to the Czech Republic in 2007. YouTube identifies the first piece as “In Holomoc Town," but that is likely a misspelling or alternate spelling of “Olomouc," the name of Viklický's Moravian hometown. And where is Olomouc, you might ask. It is southeast of Prague (Praha) and northeast of Brno (thanks for the map, Google).

Viklický is the pianist, Petr Dvorsky the bassist, Laco Tropp the drummer. The gig was at a jazz club with the unlikely name Tibet, in Olomouc.



Steel yourself for an untimely end to “A Night in Tunisia" just when Laco Tropp is on a roll——among other drum strokes. But the shock is softened by what has gone before.



Word is that on his current visit to the US, Viklický recorded a duo album with his sometime collaborator Scott Robinson, the Jim Thorpe of jazz multi- instrumentalists.
