Back To Top


The project of the pianist and Hammond organ player and composer Jan Andr combines jazz tradition with modern genres such as soul, funk and hip hop. Inspired by the New York club scene, The Track Inspection is a unique formation on the Czech jazz scene, combining the Hammond organ trio and the three-member brass section. Jan Andr’s collaborations range from the soul-pop diva Tonya Graves, through electronic music producer Boris Carloff to the Milan Svoboda Prague Big Band. Other band members such as Kirill Yakovlev, Tomáš Hobzek, Miroslav Hloucal, Petr Kalfus and Richard Šanda are also experienced jazz musicians. The band’s debut album Introducing was released in October 2020 under Locator Records.
