Music of the Milan Svoboda Quartet is based on the modern jazz style of last century's sixties and seventies. It is also influenced by rock music, folkloric and contemporary classical music. Svoboda often weaves his compositions into longer theme-based suites, providing space for creative improvisation of all his band members. The Milan Svoboda Quartet has been performing throughout most of Europe, as well as the USA, Mexico and India.

 

The group played at numerous jazz festivals and produced the following records: "Open The Window Wide", "Dedication", "The Boston Concert", "Tonight-Tomorrow Morning"Milan Svoboda Q & Tony Lakatos, "Sign of Sagittarius""Live at the Castle",  "Moment's Notice" and "Late Harvest"The Quartet played at the prestigious first "European Jazz Night" festival in Vienna, which was broadcasted by the EBU television company all over Europe.

 

During the 35 years of its existence, the Quartet's lineup witnessed many changes, always featuring top Czech jazz musicians, including Michal Gera (tp), Aleš Charvát (b), Jaromír Helešic (ds), Ivan Myslikovjan (as) and Martin Lehký (b). In the short American period the group featured Greg Badolato (ts) a Aaron Scott (ds). The Quartet performs frequently with internationally renowned personalities, such as Tony Lakatos (ts), Sigi Finkel (ts), Jarek Smietana (g), Jiří Stivín (as) and many others. On occasion the group performs as a Quintet or Sextet. The present lineup of the Milan Svoboda Quartet is a hand-picked company of top-notch soloists, who are the first-call for the hottest Czech jazz projects. The Quartet's repertoire consists mostly of Svoboda's compositions complemented by his original arrangements of well-known jazz literature. The Milan Svoboda Quartet frequently plays at European music festivals and jazz clubs.

 

At present the Quartet also performs a special concert program featuring the classical cello virtuoso Jiří Bárta. The project has been recorded on a CD entitled "Sign of Sagittarius".

 

On special occasions the Milan Svoboda Sextet can be witnessed at Czech or international venues as well. In this group the Quartet's lineup is joined by two great soloists of Svoboda's Jazz Orchestra, Michal Gera (tp) and Přemysl Tomšíček (tb).
