In 1970 he recorded his solo album “Sentimental Trumpet” with strings. As soloist he took part in the famous big band recording “Jazz Goes To Beat” by Vaclav Zahradnik. In the end of 1967 he founded his own Jazz Celula ensemble and since the beginning of 1970 he was a member of the Czech Radio Jazz Orchestra (JOCR).

He also made some duo recordings with the guitarist Sarka Dvorak and composed a lot of music for film and TV productions. Since 1985 he lives in the United States where he is a leader of the “Jazz Celula International.”
