The band

Diego Gutiérrez (drums)
Christian Pérez (doublebass)
Igor Prochazka (piano)

IPT (Igor Prochazka Trio) began playing together in late 2006. Our goal is a more personal style of jazz focused on original compositions and an intimate trio sound. We’re open to experimenting with traditional styles while also incorporating elements outside of mainstream jazz. As an international trio we bring different cultural influences to the mix: Igor Prochazka, piano (Germany); Christian Perez, bass (United States); and Diego Gutierrez, drums (Spain).
