About Jazz Lates

Jazz Lates is a series of intimate Jazz events that take place in our wonderful living room. On Friday 14th of February it is with great pleasure that we welcome Nikola Bankov Band to the living room stage.

About the artist

Award-winning alto saxophonist Nikola Bankov, described as “Bright young cat with fresh grooves“ – (ALL ABOUT JAZZ) is only 21 years old and he‘s truly pushing the boundaries of his instrument. Nikola originates from Slovakia and is currently studying at The Royal Academy of Music in Aarhus, Denmark.

His debut album ‘Bright Future’ emerges as Nikola’s definitive statement, merging inspiring and catchy melodies with a refreshingly original sound. The album features world-renowned tenor saxophonist Seamus Blake (USA). Bankov experiments with a range of FX effects applied to the sound of the saxophone, adding a new set of colours to the musical palate.
