The trio came to being in 2013 on occasion of a series of jazz nights in the coctail bar Modrá Myš in Ostrava. From 2016 JKT did a lot of concerts all over the Czech Republic and as well as in Poland. Starting with jazz standards in the beginning, JKT soon widened their repertoire with original compositon and arrangements of pop songs. In April 2018, JKT released their debut CD, Past Stories. which won the 2nd price on the “Česká Jazzová Sklizeň” (=Czech Jazz Harvest) poll, organized by Czech Radio Jazz.
“All tracks are characteristic by distinctive melodic themes, exemplary work with dynamics, fluctuation of musical flow, often up to stunning gradation and excellent solos. Debut par excellence!” Jan Hocek - Jazzport.cz
“Jan Kavka Trio’s debut with his Past Stories is important to listen to as this ‘past’ soon can become an indispensable part of your future. You can be sure you won’t regret it.” Milan Bátor - Ostravan.cz
