Few people can play approachable jazz to such high and demanding standard as the guitarist, composer and bandleader, Attila László who, at the same time, is educating the new genearation of Hungarian jazz artists at the world-famous Ferenc Liszt Academy in Budapest.
Attila has drafted into this band some of greates players on the Hungarian scene. Pianist Kálmán Oláh won the Thelonious Monk Jazz Composers’ Competition in Los Angeles. He is – without a doubt –one of the most original pianists on the Hungarian jazz scene.
He is also one of the very few who have captured the spirit of Bela Bartok in jazz. However, he has never turned his back on bebop which he plays with his most long-standing formation, Trio Midnight.
The bassist János Egri is one of the grand masters of his instrument in this country. He is also a formidable bass guitar player and leads several bold experimental groups of his own. The drummer will be one of the giants of the Great Generation of Hungarian jazz, Imre Kőszegi.
