Report from 1st Road to Ubud Village Jazz Festival 2014 at Betelnut

The first Road to Ubud Village Jazz Festival 2014 has been held successfully on 7th Feb 2014 at Betelnut. It was begun with an early jam session at Betelnut park, with Underground Jazz Movement, Astrid Sulaiman, Yuri Mahatma and Jelle Oortman Gerlings (tenor saxophone).

Meanwhile, on the 2nd set, Widi Noor and Ansuara Project had their chance to give the vocal improvisation with a fusion touch. Followed by Musicology, an ethnic-jazz group, formed by Badud Widjanarko, has given the different perspective of jazz. The band show their richness of sound with Sitar, tabla, matched with electric bass, and saxophone. Sandy Winartha Trio came as the closing band. His genuine arrangement of jazz standard songs, once again, proved that he is a mature and complete musicians.

Ondrej Stveracek will join Uwe Plath & Dian Pratiwi Quintet (Germany)

Ondrej Stveracek’s thunderous tenor sax recalls ‘new breed’ reedmen like Steve Grossman and Dave Liebman who honed their sound in the billowing wake of John Coltrane’s legacy. It is impossible not to hear echoes of the icon in this young Czech lion – a whole-horn, sound-for-its-own-sake approach with chops to support any idea that occurs – but he is clearly on his way to a more original concept with What’s Outside.

In UVJF 2014, Ondrej Stveracek will be performing with Uwe Plath (tenor saxophone), Dian Pratiwi (vocal), Dominique Elhert (drums), Sava Miletic (piano)

His mother was a classical music pedagogue, his father was a fan of jazz masters Oscar Peterson and Art Blakey, and his older brothers Marius and Alexander are respectively a professional bass player and saxophonist.
