NEW CD
An Invitation to "Discover Who We Are"


The work is almost finished and a date has now been set...! The new Robert Balzar Trio album, "Discover Who We Are", is set to hit the streets in mid-October. The CD's release will be celebrated with a concert at Prague's famed Jazz Dock on the evening of 17 October. "Discover Who We Are" was recorded/mixed at Sear Sound studios in New York City last April by renowned engineer James Farber. The equally celebrated Mark Wilder applied his touch to master the album. The disk features a mix of original songs by Robert, a couple pieces written by new Trio pianist Jiri Levicek, along with some well-chosen interpretations. We think it sounds fantastic and can't wait to showcase it in less than two months! Hope to see you then at the Jazz Dock!!

New York 2013
It's official!
The new Robert Balzar Trio album was recorded during a rewarding mid-April trip to New York City. A three-day session at Sear Sound with renowned engineer James Farber at the board resulted in the guys putting most of their current repertoire on tape. The album will be titled "Discover Who We Are" and remains on track for a September release this year, to be followed by a promotional tour.
Producer Dan Stomierosky says, "The guys played their hearts out and the session was fantastic! James captured a very rich, natural sound for the Trio and I can't wait to get this project out the door so people can hear it!"

MID-YEAR UPDATE
No big news for Robert thus far in 2012 but sometimes no big news is not such a bad thing! Robert's touring schedule continues to be busy, juggling the demands of playing Trio dates with Dan Bárta, gigs with Illustratosphere in various configurations, J.A.R. concerts, not to mention many dates with the Robert Balzar Trio by itself. Should you happen to be on the Iberian Peninsula in early July, Dan Bárta and the Robert Balzar Trio are playing a couple shows in Portugal and Spain (see the Concert Calendar for details). Planning for the new Robert Balzar Trio album continues, watch this space for further news about that project!

2011: THE YEAR IN REVIEW

As another year draws to a close, it's time once again to take a moment and recap Robert's activities over the past twelve months.
Arguably the biggest Robert - related news in 2011 was an announcement by legendary Czech chanteuse Hana Hegerová of her retirement from live performances. Robert had been a member of Hana's touring band for over twenty years
Funk-rap ensemble J.A.R. released their latest album "Dlouhohrajici decka" to great acclaim in late 2011! The new disk shot straight to number 1 on the Czech album charts with the band promoting it during their traditional November tour.
Robert along with fellow Illustratosphere members Dan Bárta and Filip Jelinek, reunited with their former Sexy Dancer's bandmate Dara Rolins during successful Illustratosphere tours of both the Czech and the Slovak Republics (additional dates are being planned for 2012!).
And speaking of Dan Bárta, The Robert Balzar Trio played numerous live dates with Dan throughout the year in continued support of their popular late - 2010 album "Theyories".
Last but no doubt the closest to Robert's heart, The Robert Balzar Trio played an increased number gigs throughout 2011. The Trio is currently focused on building new repertoire for their next album, tentatively titled "Discover Who We Are", to be recorded sometime in the new year.

Please be sure to come by a gig in 2012 and discover for yourself what the RB Trio is up to!
Happy Holidays!!

NEW J.A.R. RELEASE

Long-running funk-rap outfit J.A.R. have released their first new album in five years, "Dlouhohrajici decka". The album debuted at number one on the Czech album charts and is available at all the usual retail locations throughout the Czech and Slovak Republics. Robert has been a member of J.A.R. since 1998 and the new release prominently features his bass playing. J.A.R. will be touring over the next few months in support of the new album. Many live dates are scheduled for November including the traditional annual Prague appearance on 17 November. For the non-Czech speakers, the album name roughly translates as \"Long playing children\". You may draw your own conclusions from that!

HANA HEGEROVÁ RETIRES FROM THE STAGE

It is with great sadness that we pass along the news that Hana Hegerová has decided to retire from her busy schedule of live performances. While she has not ruled out making the occasional guest concert appearance, nor does she plan to stop making new albums, citing health reasons Hana decided to no longer continue her rigorous touring schedule. Robert has been a member of Hana's touring band since 1990 and has also played on numerous studio recordings as well.
Robert comments, "I will miss playing Hana's show, it's been a part of my life for a long time! Playing a Hegerová concert was different in many ways from my other projects: the volume level gave the show a different dynamic; I often played with the bow which I really enjoy and don't get to do as much as I might like elsewhere; playing without a drummer is a very different experience and I have always enjoyed playing alongside Petr Malasek, Fr. Kop and Zd. Fiser. Everybody knows Hana is she well loved by her fans. She has her own very distinctive image and she worked hard at her craft right up to her last concert. I wish her all the best in retirement!"




 
August 19 2011
LAST CHANCE, NO LONGER LOST
Dan Bárta and the Robert Balzar Trio made a recent appearance on the Czech television music program "KLOBOUCEK" performing four songs from their album "Theyories". If you were lucky enough to catch the show, here is a bonus video for you! One additional song was performed and taped but it was shown on a different telecast of "KLOBOUCEK". And if you did not catch the show when it aired, this video is your opportunity to see a great performance by the guys!

ON THE ROAD AGAIN

While Prague thaws out from the long winter, March and April are both shaping up to be big "concert months" on Robert's schedule. A fourteen date Illustratosphere tour is scheduled to kick off in Brno in early March. This tour will feature vocals from special guest Dara Rolins. For those unaware, Robert, Filip Jelínek, Dan Bárta, and Dara Rolins were all members of the short-lived Czech funk supergroup Sexy Dancers. In addition to the Illustratosphere tour, Robert also has dates scheduled for the continuing promotion of the recent Dan Bárta / Robert Balzar Trio album "Theyories". And if all of that weren't enough, perhaps the most exciting news is a dozen or so Robert Balzar Trio gigs that are also scheduled throughout March / April at which the guys will be honing material for a planned new Trio album!
Please check the Concerts calendar section of the website for details on all the dates and we sincerely hope to see you somewhere soon!!

2010: THE YEAR IN REVIEW

2010 is no doubt a year that Robert Balzar will remember best for all the work that went into making the album "Theyories", a collaboration between the Robert Balzar Trio and renowned Czech vocalist Dan Bárta. Selecting repertoire for the album began early in the year, arrangements for the twelve songs were developed, the material was honed in concert performances, demos were recorded. The actual recording of "Theyories" took place in several sessions at Smecky Studios in Prague throughout the summer months. A trip was made to New York City in early October for mixing and mastering. "Theyories" was released to great acclaim in late October at a release party concert held at Prague's Divadlo Archa. This coming out party was followed by a twenty-city "Theyories" promotional tour throughout the Czech and Slovak Republics in November/December.
Although "Theyories" was easily the highlight of Robert's year, there were indeed many other memorable occurrences throughout 2010. Robert traveled with bandmates Dan Bárta and Illustratosphere to the Expo 2010 in Shanghai, China for some live performances in May. Robert was a participant in the recording of legendary Czech chanson singer Hana Hegerova's latest album "Mlýnské kolo v srdci mém"which was also released late in the year (Robert is a long-time member of Hana's touring band). Robert also recorded tracks for the long-awaited new album by funk-rap group J.A.R. which should see a release in spring 2011.

Thanks for supporting the music by coming to the gigs and by buying the CDs!
Hope to see you soon in 2011!!



 
November 18 2010
"THEYORIES" TOUR

The new Dan Bárta & Robert Balzar Trio album "Theyories" was released with much fanfare during a show at Prague's Divadlo Archa on October 23rd. The reception for the disc has been great and sales thus far have been brisk (special thanks to everybody who has purchased a copy)! There are many concerts scheduled in support of the new album all around both the Czech and the Slovak Republics. Please check the concert calendar on the website for details and hopefully we'll be seeing YOU at one of the upcoming shows!



 
October 11 2010
NEW HANA HEGEROVÁ CD

In addition to his own new album "Theyories", Robert's playing is featured on the new album by the legendary Hana Hegerová, "Mlýnské kolo v srdci mém". Robert is a long-running member of Hana's touring band and has previously worked with her in the studio. Hana's new album is riding the top of the charts now and is available from all of the usual sources. Please be sure to check it out!

BRAND NEW CD "THEYORIES"
DAN BARTA & ROBERT BALZAR TRIO

While the new album is now less than three weeks from its release, here's an update on the goings-on from the past couple months... The album has been christened with the name "Theyories" and as promised, will feature interpretations of songs by a diverse range of artists. The basic tracks for the CD were laid down at Studio Smecky in Prague. The material was mixed at Sear Sound in New York City by three - time Grammy Award winning engineer James Farber (Brad Mehldau, John Scofield, Eliane Ellias, Michael Franks…).
The final step in the process was a mastering session with another multiple - Grammy winning engineer Mark Wilder
(Miles Davis, Weather Report, St.Wonder, Sting...).
We think the album is great, sounds great, and we cannot wait for everybody to hear it! Please join us at the Archa Theatre in Prague on 23 October for the CD release party!

June 12 2010
FINALLY, AN ALBUM!

The Robert Balzar Trio & Dan Bárta are taking their long-running live collaboration to the next level by recording an album!
The new CD is planned for an autumn 2010 release and will feature interpretations of songs by both the well-known and the not-so-well-known (e.g. The Police, Joni Mitchell, Finley Quaye, Meshell Ndegeocello, a 13th Century choral work, and so on...).
The album release party is set for 23 October at the Archa Theatre in Prague.

2009: THE YEAR IN REVIEW
A year in which Robert focused on live work kicked off in in big way in March with the Robert Balzar Trio touring the Czech Republic, Slovakia and England with guitarist John Abercrombie. In June, the Robert Balzar Trio played a five-night stand in New York City. Live Robert Balzar Trio work in the latter part of the year saw a particular focus on concerts with renowned Czech singer Dan Bárta (including dates in Spain) in preparation for the recording of a collaborative album in 2010. 2009 was also a year for anniversaries! The 10th anniversary of Dan Bárta & Illustratosphere, a group in which Robert is a founding member, was celebrated both with an April tour of Slovakia and with a September tour of the Czech Republic. November 17th marked the 20th anniversary of the formation of funk-rap band J.A.R. on the day of the Velvet Revolution. This milestone was celebrated with a November J.A.R. tour of the Czech Republic.
