Jiri Marsicek Trio (CZE)

Jiri Marsicek on olnud bluusi austaja juba teismeeast saati. Ta kasvas üles bluusikitarri suurmehi Freddie King’i, BB King’i, Otis Rush’i, Magic Sam’i ja legendaarseid soulilauljaid Al Green’i, Otis Redding’ut kuulates. Nende loomingust mõjutatuna on ta kujundanud oma silmapaistva ja erilise stiili, mille juured ulatuvad sügavale 20. sajandi afro-ameerika muusikasse. Põneval teekonnal artistina on ta jaganud lava ameerika lauljatega Sharon Lewis, Lorenzo Thompson, Marilyn Oliver või Morganfield Brothers (Muddy Waters’i pojad). Oma bändiga, kuhu kuuluvad Jan Korinek Hammondi klahvpillil ja Jeff Boudreaux trummidel, on ta võlunud publikume tehniliselt suurepärase, samas õrna kitarrimänguga ja hingestatud lauluga viimased 6 aastat. 2016. aasta sügisel avaldas Jiri oma debüütalbumi “I Get a Feeling,” mis sai tunnustust mitmete Tšehhi tippmuusikute poolt. Teda võib kahtlusteta pidada oma riigi üheks säravaimaks ja paljulubavamaks nooreks bluusiartistiks.
