PolkaBEATS 2010 / 2014 / 2016 / 2019
The Jindřich Staidel Combo has freely accepted the burden of two great traditions: polka and jazz, which both – according to them - have their roots in the Bohemian city of Olomouc. Linking polka and Bohemia won’t raise any eyebrows – but jazz might well lift the roof. Proudly defining their sound as jazzpolka, we might be inclined to give them the benefit of the doubt, or at least the freedom to invent themselves as this combo stakes its claim with STAIDEL IS BACK, a fireworks display of polka avant-garde that is simply fun and irresistibly danceable, regardless of labels, regardless of rules.
