Ne prižigaj luči v temi, Zlati prah imaš v očeh, Nad mestom se dani, Mini maksi, Mati, bodiva prijatelja, Samo nasmeh je bolj grenak,  Tam, kjer sem doma, Zato sem noro te ljubila, Kako sva si različna, Prva ljubezen, Silvestrski poljub, Zimzelen, Vozi me vlak v daljavejust a few of the many popular Slovene songs to bear the musical signature of Jože Privšek (1937–1998). A pianist, conductor and composer, Privšek wrote important chapters in the history of Slovene popular music and jazz and was for thirty years the conductor of the RTV Slovenia Big Band (originally known as the Radio Ljubljana Dance Orchestra and then as the RTV Ljubljana Big Band). Privšek brought the ensemble to a very high level and wrote several thousand jazz arrangements for it. He was the author of a large number of jazz compositions and numerous songs, and also composed music for films, television and the theatre. His compositions earned him the Kozina Prize of the Society of Slovene Composers, a Prešeren Fund Prize and a Viktor. He would have turned 80 on 19 March this year, which is why this year’s Summer Night is dedicated to him.
