Point of Few is a new Czech instrumental quartet organically combining electronics with contemporary jazz. Their music has an exceptionally fresh and original sound, it is colorful, adventurous and as changeable as the current times. Formed in 2019, the band used the subsequent period of pandemic-influenced experimentation to find their own path, from which they emerged with a mature and polished debut: Open to Closeness. For the album, the band invited a guest of the highest caliber: New York keyboardist and sonic wizard Jason Lindner, who can be heard on David Bowie's last iconic album Blackstar, or in the bands of Donna McCaslin or Mark Guiliana. This special album launch concert will feature the great Czech keyboardist Jan Uvira (ex-Laco Deczi Cellula, 7krát3, Triplay, etc.) The band draws inspiration from an eclectic mix of contemporary jazz and popular music, naturally blending these worlds into one. The New York jazz scene and musicians like Justin Brown, James Francies, and Robert Glasper are important influences, but occasionally echoes of early jazz idols like Pat Metheny and Bill Frisell peek out of their work. In the field of popular music, it's a varied mix ranging from David Bowie to Radiohead or the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Despite the fact that the songs often have novel forms or use odd meters, they still come across as songs with separate worlds, telling stories.
