Nikola Bankov 's second album “Dream Chaser” features very special guest - legendary, Grammy-winning trumpet player Randy Brecker (USA).
The music is adventurous, exuberant and powerful: music for a new generation, music that will inspire and excite. It combines catchy melodies with deep grooves. It’s a fusion of jazz, punk-rock and electronic elements.

His critically acclaimed debut album ‘Bright Future’ emerges as Nikola’s definitive statement, merging inspiring and catchy melodies with a refreshingly original sound. The album features world-renowned tenor saxophonist Seamus Blake (USA) and received one of the prizes at Esprit Jazz Awards for The Best Jazz Album Of The Year in Slovakia. Bankov experiments with a range of FX effects applied to the sound of the saxophone, adding a new set of colors to the musical palate.

It was a pleasure to play on Nikola Bankov's new recording. Nikola has already received big honors and awards in his home country of Slovakia and Denmark, but he's ready to take on the world! A quite original alto saxophonist, composer and conceptualist, his music to me defies categories, he has his own sub-genre going, somewhere between jazz, funk, rock, and grunge. So listen for yourself and hear a heart-filled nod to the future! - RANDY BRECKER
