The winner of the 2015 Jazz Prix Competition (Bohemia Jazz Fest)

Every year, musicians residing in the Czech Republic and under 35 years of age are invited to apply to Bohemia JazzFest’s Competition, JazzPrix.  
This year’s international jury was comprised of three heavyweights in the jazz world: Ralf Dombrowski, German jazz journalist of Süddeutsche Zeitung, Rudy Linka, Czech jazz guitarist, and Gunter Schroder, the European agent at Ted Kurland Associates.   

¨For the jury, it was not easy to select one winner from a pool of such high quality applicants, but at the end all three jurors unanimously selected Kristina Barta for her fresh approach to the jazz standard “Autumn Leaves” and the great interaction within her band members.¨ Rudy Linka, director
