The Green Card Album Ondřej Pivec

Over the past five years, organist and keyboardist Ondrej Pivec has been an ambassador of Czech music in NY where he currently resides and works. New York is also the origin of his latest record, the title of which gives a hint about his future plans. Musically, the album connects to Pivec’s rich jazz career, but his new American experience is shifting the direction towards rhythm-and-blues, gospel and pop. Pivec himself is taken in a new direction with The Green Card Album. It stands out with its spot-on production and crisp sound, and contains performances of a long stray of local musicians and singers. This CD demonstrates Pivec in his current musical frame of mind, and in an excellent shape as a composer, player, arranger and producer.
