TRIO

NBS trio

Nothing But Swing Trio (NBS Trio) was formed in 1998 in Banská Bystrica and has existed ever since in its original set-up: Klaudius Kováč – piano, Róbert Ragan – double-bass and Peter Solárik – drums.
The title itself indicates that Nothing but Swing Trio follows the tradition and the musical heritage of the significant jazz musicians’ generation of the Forties and Fifties of the 20th century, such as Lester Young, Bud Powell, Charlie Parker and others. However, their repertoire goes far beyond the boundaries of the Fifties. The considerable musical potential of the trio’s members enables them to draw upon the influences ranging from classical music, ethnic folk to modern jazz. These influences are – to a great extent – reflected in their own original compositions, also the arrangements and interpretation of already existing compositions and standards.
The band has quickly become a stable part of jazz scene in Slovakia and abroad.
In 2002, NBS Trio recorded its debut album titled “Soul Station”. The album has met with a very favourable reaction both at home and abroad.
Hevhetia recording company released their album titled “Stano Palúch & Nothing but Swing Trio”. The band invited as its guest the phenomenal Slovak violinist Stano Palúch and recorded with him a string of jazz standards, their original compositions and jazz arrangements of national folk songs.
