World class pianist, Béla Szakcsi Lakatos immediately caught the attention of the British critics when he played with Arnie Somogyi’s ten-piece band, Improvokation both at the Cheltenham Jazz Festival and at Ronnie Scott’s.
Alyn Shipton in The Times wrote of “the brilliantly eccentric pianism of Bela Szakcsi Lakatos”, while John Fordham of The Guardian simply stated that “pianist Bela Szakcsi Lakatos is wonderful”. In November 2007 he and his augmented group represented Hungary at the London Jazz Festival.
His frenetically successful concert was broadcast live by Radio 3. The bass will be looked after by the wonderful and much in-demand Pluto. The third member of the trio is the amazingly versatile drummer/percussionist/singer Emilio, a great favourite with audiences.
