Ta Jana z Velké Ohrady means “The Jane From Velké Ohrady.” The Jane may be the stage name of vocalist Jana Husáková; Velké Ohrady can be an area in the town of Prague. Since its debut in 1996, the group continues to be attracting an ardent pursuing in central European countries. The artists explain their music as “brand-new psychological chanson,” that actually hits near to the truth. Motivated with the cabaret custom (with Marlene Dietrich showing up to be always a particular impact), Ta Jana and her acoustic music group (piano, dual bass, drums) move somewhere within close vocal jazz and substitute pop. The concentrate remains for the singer’s extremely emotional tone of voice, fueled by torrid tales of broken interactions. Husáková continues to be performing for the folk picture for years, performing in the groupings Corpus Delicti and Mrakopla, besides delivering single recitals at Prague’s Semafor membership. In these groupings she fulfilled drummer Roman Pluhar, who became her closest collaborator. The latter’s background also contains blues, jazz, rock and roll, and brass rings. The pair begun to gadget with the idea of the group in 1995. The task materialized a season later if they fulfilled pianist Vedelín Tuma. The trio produced its live debut six weeks following its formation. Bassist Premysl Vágner, a jazzman who once performed country-folk using the group Sekvoj, became a member of around Oct 1996, just like Ta Jana z Velké Ohrady documented a demonstration tape (he shows up on half from the tracks). On its power, the quartet arrived a every week residency at Semafor for the 1996-1997 period, building a devoted pursuing. In the springtime of 1999, the music artists recorded their initial record, Od Pulnoci perform Trí (From Midnight to Three), and shortly landed a agreement using the record label Dark Point. Backed in the mass media by jazz-blues icon Jan Spálen, music article writer Petr Korál, as well as the deputy mayor of Prague’s 13th region, the album fascinated much positive interest in Slovakia, Hungary, Austria, and Germany, as well as the group’s house nation. For the follow-up, Perform Pul Tela (Half-Length, released 2002), Ivan Vojta changed Tuma in the piano as the music relocated from the cabaret audio and right into a even more personal design of chanson.
