“DANIEL IS SURELY ONE OF MY BEST STUDENTS. HIS POISE, PROFESSIONALISM, AND TENACITY REMIND ME A LOT OF MYSELF WHEN I WAS A YOUNG JAZZ MUSICIAN. IN THE SPACE OF 2 YEARS HE HAS GONE FROM A BEGINNER TO A VERY SOUGHT-AFTER PIANIST ON THE PRAGUE JAZZ SCENE. DANIEL WILL SURELY LEAVE A BIG MARK ON CZECH JAZZ.” – BRIAN CHARRETTE, ORGANIST (NYC)

BIO

Daniel Bulatkin is a new face on the Czech jazz scene. He was born in 1999 in Prague. When he was 15 years old, he won 3rd place in the prestigious solo piano competition ‘Pianist of the Year 2015’ organized by the company Petrof. He was the youngest participant in the history of the competition. He defended his 3rd place in the following year of the competition.

He has studied under many acclaimed pianists from the Czech Republic and abroad (Omer Klein, Brian Charette, Vojtěch Eckert, Jiří Levíček and many more) and has visited many jazz workshops (including one lead by legendary bebop pianist George Cables). Over the span of his short career he has collaborated, among others, with: Oleg Kireyev (RU), Utsi Zimring (IZR), Per Mathisen (NOR), David Buchbinder (CAN), Ilay Bal (TUR), Rodrigo Parejo (ESP), Rene Trossman (USA), Miriam Bayle (SK), Milo Suchomel (SK), Jiří Válek (CZ) and many others. He has appeared, among others, on festivals such as Prague Proms, Bohemia Jazz Fest or Rock for People.

He is currently the leader of Daniel Bulatkin Q, a new stable ensemble featuring premier saxophonist Cyrille Oswald from Holland. Although the group focuses mainly on interpreting less-known compositions from the post-bop era, Daniel presents himself for the first time also as a composer. His composition Lady of the Lake, arranged for big band by Andy Schofield, is now part of the repertoire of the prestigious Jazz Dock Orchestra. He is also currently honing his skills as a Hammond organ player.

DANIEL BULATKIN Q
This new jazz ensemble under the leadership of young bandleader Daniel Bulatkin was founded in August 2016 on a studio session with american jazz musicians Neil Wetzel (alto sax) and Gary Rissmiller (drums). The original intent of the band was to play arrangements of less-known compositions from the post-bop era (fex. Bill Evans, Tom Harrell, Herbie Hancock), however, currently the group focuses mostly on original music of all its members. This group is currently preparing to record its debut album. On concerts, it usually performs in a compact (4-piece) or a full (5-piece) configuration.
