Previously unknown recording of Czech jazz singer Vlasta Průchová released

A previously unknown recording of the Czech jazz singer Vlasta Průchová, accompanied by renowned accordionist Bora Kříž, has been uncovered. The album Bora Kříž & Vlasta Průchová Malostranská beseda 1982 has been released on the Radioservis label. It was recorded at the Prague venue when the late “first lady of Czech jazz” was 56. Průchová was the mother of jazz fusion musician Jan Hammer, who is perhaps best known for the theme music to Miami Vice.
