  7. This year, sadly, Luboš Andršt will most probably be missing from the tutors’ setup. The tutors setup for this year’s edition will most likely be the following: Josef Fečo (bass) Zdeněk Fišer (guitar), Miroslav Hloucal (trumpet), Štěpán Janoušek (trombone), Petr Kalfus (saxes) František Krtička (keyboards), Pavel Razím (drums), Jiří Stivín (flutes), Milo Suchomel (saxes), Jaroslav Šindler (guitar), Lubomír Šrámek (keyboards), Zdeněk "Wimpy" Tichota (bassguitar), Adam Tvrdý (guitar), Boris Urbánek (keyboards), Marek Urbánek (drums), Veronika Vítová (vocal) and Martin Zbrožek (violin). Of the American tutors, Lee Andrew Davison (vocal) will surely be a part of the setup and in case the pandemic situation improves, Neil Wetzel (saxes and big band) and Skip Wilkins (vocal) will attend. If the travel between the US and Europe is still difficult or impossible, Andy Schofield and Suzanne Higgins are again ready to replace the two American tutors.
