Vid Drašler is from Bistrica ob Sotli, where he
played in a jazz-rock band Zmajev rep and in the Malik. With the Balžalorsky /
Drašler trio he made a breakthrough in Slovenian jazz. With no less subtlety he
plays in a chanson-oriented Orkestrada. One of his next peaks is the Drašler –
Karlovčec – Drašler trio whose noisy improvisation is in no way less clear than
his earlier more structured work.

with the Kombo Kombo – a jazz orchestra lead by Zlatko Kavčič, with whom he
also studied for four years. He has been active as a pedagogue and co-author of
