Collaboration is probably the best way for a musician to improve or discover something new. Doesn't matter, collaborations with musicians or artists of another art form – the more the better. Needless to say, most of the artists understand this concept but the key is not to forget its importance in your daily life.
Good friends who happen to compose, arrange and play music – Donatas Petreikis and Karolis Šarkus – decided to collaborate. These musicians know each other for many years and spent countless hours on listening to records together, discussions and writing songs. Most of it would usually end up staying inside the studio but this time it was different. They have put all of their ideas with music on paper and out of love for jazz Collaborative Jazz Septet was born. It is the only jazz septet in Lithuania who is playing authentic jazz music from the eras of bebop and hardbop. Karolis and Donatas recorded all this music and made an album out of that. It was released digitally in November 2020 and will be released as an LP in 2021.
