Pianist József Balázs is the leader and arranger of the East Gipsy Band which was immensely successful both at New York’s famous Blue Note and at the Detroit Jazz Festival, and he also happens to be one of the best jazz pianists in Hungary.
He is accompanied by his famous brother, Elemér Balázs on the drums who is, arguably, the best drummer in his country.
