The Brno B-SIDE BAND of bandleader Josef Buchta has a new video for the composition Meeting Point, which is part of the album with the same name.
Meeting Point – important moments and expectations. A place with an atmosphere and pulsing with life. A place that cannot be missed. It recalls the emotions of a thousand tales. The jazz piece Meeting Point by the composer and pianist Jiří Levíček together with another 8 compositions and arrangements by contemporary jazz composers, is on the album with the same name, which shows the Brno big band in a completely different light than that which visitors to their concerts with the singer Vojtěch Dyk are used to. This instrumental jazz album was issued at the end of 2014.
A unique short musical film, shot in the South Moravian metropolis, was created for the project. Its title was taken from that of the composition. The director of this video is Hana Kovaříková, who has long cooperated with the B-SIDE BAND also in fashioning their tours and directing their concerts. The filming and editing is the work of the young and talented film-maker Filip Novák. “It is wonderful that it was possible to film a modern big-band video, with the participation of every individual member of the group and the team. I have to say that the final form of Meeting Point was a great and pleasant surprise. At the same time I cannot disguise my great personal pleasure at fulfilling my dream of riding in a film on my Moto Guzzi.” Adds Josef Buchta, bandleader of the B-SIDE BAND.
The first live performance of the pieces from the album Meeting Point will take place on Tuesday 19 December at 8.30 p.m. in the Metro Music Bar.
