Nikol Bóková: Inner Place
Nikol Bóková

Inner Place

An extraordinary jazz debut from the classically trained and experienced pianist NIKOL BÓKOVÁ, whose repertoire stretches from the Baroque period to contemporary music. Her first solo album is inspired by jazz, classical music, minimalism and, in some respect, popular music. It was recorded in the traditional jazz-piano-trio line-up alongside MARTIN KOCIÁN on the double bass and MICHAŁ WIERZGOŃ on the drums, both of whom form the band Purple is the Color. Nikol’s compositions are perfectly polished miniatures, simple in form yet echoing the harmonic and melodic complexity of classical piano literature. Her brilliant technique and dynamic keystrokes, as defined by her extensive experience in classical music interpretation, is unique to the world of the jazz piano. Throughout her compositions, Nikol Bóková effortlessly shifts between genres and is clearly fascinated by the possibilities each genre has to offer.
