Harmonia Jazz Workshop, Budapest Jazz Club, 18 April
Calling all English speaking jazz lovers in Budapest to The Harmonia Jazz Workshop at the Budapest Jazz Club with a kick-off at 20.00 on Friday, 18th April 2014 proudly presents the “Tri-bop Project” by Gábor Szalay, Szakcsi Jr & József Barcza Horváth

Guitarman Gábor Szalay is one of the underrated but absolutely brilliant masters of his instrument. He plays a mean bebop guitar and his musical bloodline goes back to Wes Montgomery, Kenny Burrell, Barney Kessell and Jim Hall.

Member of one of the most distinguished Hungarian Gypsy musical dynasties, the amazing bop pianist Béla Szakcsi Lakatos Jr. gave ample proof on the album, Szakcsi Generation with Jack DeJohnette and John Patitucci of just how consistently he maintains the standards set by his amazing father, not to mention the fact that he also turned out to be an equal partner to his world-famous American accompanists.

On bass we’ll have József Barcza Horváth, one of the best and most interesting players in this country which is teeming anyway with virtuoso bassists. He is one of the most melodic soloists to be heard.

Entry fee: 1400 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.
