Celebrates this year its 50-th birthday. This group is especially known for playing mostly its own original compositions.

According to Mr. Smetacek, jazz is actually a fusion of several cultures- African, European and Latin American. Although his father Vaclav Smetacek was the famous conductor of the Symphonic Orchestra of Prague (FOK) and thus a classical musician, he considered jazz an important part of modern musical culture and so did his friends R. A. Dvorsky, Jaroslav Jezek, AloisHaba and Jaroslav Kricka.

Pavel Smetacek’s orchestra played in many countries, including Switzerland, Italy and in the USA, most often in Texas.
