Invitation: Cafe Budapest Jazzmarathon, Budapest Jazz Club, 18 October
Calling all English speaking jazz lovers in Budapest to The Harmonia Jazz Workshop at the Budapest Jazz Club, this time as part of the annual Cafe Budapest Jazzmarathon with an exceptional kick-off time at 8.30 p.m. on Friday, 18th October 2013 proudly presents the singing sensation from Romania Luiza Zan. (Before Luiza at 7 p.m. Ninagram, after Luiza at 10 p.m. Lőrinc Barabás takes the stage and from 11 p.m. there will be a soul/funk jam session)

Romanian songstress Luiza Zan is one of the most interesting and original jazz singers not just in this Central-East European region but in the whole of Europe. She sings an intriguing and highly individual mixture of jazz, rhythm’n’blues, funk and bossa nova. In 2004 she came second at the Montreux International Jazz Festival’s Jazz Voice competition.

Two years ago she made her rip-roaring British debut at London’s legendary 606 Club and hasn’t looked back since. Two of Hungary’s top jazz artists, pianist Péter Sárik and guitar player István Gyárfás have been at us for some time now to give them an opportunity to play with her again, something that they have done several times at various festivals abroad. This superb team will be augmented by bassist Tibor Fónay and Attila Gálfi on the drums.

If you want to know what you’re getting, listen to this one:

Entry fee for the gig by Luiza 1000 forints for the whole evening: 2700 forints

The BJC is in the 13th district at Hollán Ernő utca 7

There is no compulsion to eat or drink but there is a well stocked bar with also cocktails made to order at non-extortionate prices. For food you’ll have to resort to a staple diet of sandwiches, crisps and nuts.
