22-year old Mátyás Gayer is a sensational jazz pianist. Audiences and musicians alike were dazzled not just by his technique but also by his startling originality. He was featured at the annual Jazz Showcase at the Budapest Palace of Arts.
A talent scout for one of the record companies quietly remarked on hearing him: I don’t like to say things like that but this boy has it in him to become a world star. He studied in Graz, Austria alongside with his bass player, Mátyás Hofecker the rising star of the new generation, treading the path of the likes of Ray Brown, Sam Jones and Paul Chambers.
The drums will be looked after by Márton Juhász a Berklee graduate and a brilliant player who, despite his young age has already acquired an immense international experience and is the originator and leader of the immensely popular Afro-European Playground.
