Miroslav Vitous' 'Ziljabu Nights' is the eighth release in Intuition Records "European Jazz Legends" series, presenting famous names from the European jazz scene in a live performance.

In hindsight, 'Infinite Search', the title of Miroslav Vitous' first album as a leader from 1970, which featured players like Herbie Hancock, John McLaughlin, Jack DeJohnette and Joe Henderson, seems prophetic. The bassplayer, composer, educator, former member of the Czech Olympic swimming team, co-founder of the trailblazing group Weather Report, is still constantly on a quest, and never without a project. At 68, Vitous is far from retiring, working on a symphony, preparing gigs with a Big Band or the Prague Symphony, and occasionally presenting his music in concerts with his current group.

This live recording from the Theater Gutersloh presents him with this band - featuring Aydin Esen from Turkey on keyboards, Roberto Gatto from Italy on drums, as well as Gary Campbell from the US and Robert Bonisolo from Canada on saxophones, interplaying with Vitous on his singing upright bass. The music is a fascinating fusion of modern Jazz traditions and new musical ideas and concepts.
