Hammond organ player and multiinstumentalist, producer and sound engineer from Prague, Czech Republic.

„GROOVE“ – no word better describes Jan Korinek’s music today. His band evolved from a pure blues band into a soul-jazz-funk group with strong blues influences, exploring and presenting the roots of this great music. He is a performer who never gives less than everything he has each time he takes the stage. Over 25 years of touring, recording and surviving in the music business ensure that his soul has stories to tell filled with the blues as well as humor.

Jan Korinek, the 42 year old Hammond organ player is the founder, heart, soul and brain of Groove. He started his musical career as a bass player, something which has stayed with him on the keyboard, giving funky, left-hand chops that even bass players marvel at. His music closely follows the tradition of the great Hammond organ combos (such as Jimmy McGriff, Jimmy Smith, Richard Groove Holmes etc), walking a thin line between blues and jazz. He has toured and managed tours with various international artists such as Chris Cain, Lorenzo Thompson, Carlos Johnson, Chick Willis, Chanda Rule, Eb Davis, Sharon Lewis, George Freeman, John Lee Sanders to name just a few. Jan Korinek was also a guest of several groups, for instance The Kinsey Report, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, Jean Toussaint and he has appeared on numerous recordings as well.

Jan Korinek and Groove currently performs as a Hammond organ trio that is occasionally joined by Osian Roberts (UK) on saxophone. Some years ago the Czech Radio featured the band in one of its radio programs, which was broadcast online and is now availble through the EBU (European Broadcasting Union) and the Czech National TV has recently recorded one the band’s concerts. He performed at several major festivals such as Boyalali Jazz Fest (Indonesia), Inntoene Jazz Festival (Austria), Sumperk Blues Festival, Jazz Goes To Town, International Jazz and Blues Festival Usti Nad Labem, Trasimeno Blues Festival, Porretta Soul Festival (Italy), Sibiu Jazz Festival (Romania), Alfa Jazz Lviv (Ukraine), etc

Jan Korinek is currently a member of several international groups - Chris Cain EU Band, Luca Giordano Band (Italy), Sweet Emma Band (Austria) and Organized Crime (Austria), Jiri Marsicek Trio (CZ)
