The Tel-Aviv born New York based trumpeter, Avishai Cohen was one of the sensations of the Newport Jazz Festival in 2011 and was voted “Rising Star” the following year by the Downbeat Annual critics’ poll. He carries the musical heritage of Miles Davis but a lot more influences also enrich his playing. His international prestige he largely owes to the world-famous SF Jazz Collective in which his friend, Mark Turner also played.
He is coming to Hungary backed by his No.1 project, the Triveni Trio. In this unusual trumpet-bass-drums format Avishai Cohen can fully come into his own and spellbind his audience.
Cohen is a multicultural jazz musician, among whose ancestors is Miles Davis. Like Davis, he can make the trumpet a vehicle for uttering the most poignant human cries.” — The New York Times

We proudly present: Road Six Sax
This amazing saxophone quartet is the brainchild of alto player, Viktor Tóth, one of Hungary’s most original, spirited and enterprising saxohonists. The group basically works like the internationally acclaimed World Saxophone Quartet. They are such terrific and resourceful players that they don’t need a rhythm section and are able to produce fun-filled, robust and highly entertaining jazz (that could even be danced to if jazz audiences weren’t so snobbish:).
„I heard them on International Jazz Day and, for me, they were the highlight of the day” - Peter Pallai, self-appointed jazz critic.
