Jazz Podium 2: ROBERT JUKIČ & BIG BAND RTV SLOVENIJA »WOMBAT HENRY & CAPYBARA JANE«

Big band RTV Slovenija
Lojze Krajnčan, conductor
Robert Jukič, bass

Multitalented Slovenian bass player Robert Jukič has been appearing on stages of national and international jazz clubs and festivals for many years. The long list of groups and artist he collaborated with as an instrumentalist and composer knows no limits: national, nor musical. He fell in love with music when he was a teenager, when he played the electric bass in various ensembles which left a mark on his further work. He appears on more than 60 CDs as a bass player, composer or arranger, and he published 11 of his own. The music reflects the diverse influences that inspire him: from jazz to classical music, folk, blues, country, alternative pop, chansons and world music. 

For the Lent Festival, he prepared three premieres with funny and expressive titles and with international ensembles. After many years we will be able to hear one of the oldest big bands of the world - Big Band RTV Slovenija has been making music since 1945, and was led by many important conductors such as Bojan Adamič, Jože Privšek or Lojze Krajnčan.
