During the spring my wife and I spent a weekend at Lake Balaton in the town of Balatonfüred. Taking a stroll near the lakeside one evening, we heard an incredible jazz vocal track coming out of one of the cafés. Much to my shame, I couldn’t identify the singer, so we walked in to ask.
It turned out to be not a record but a live performance by this fantastic but, outside of her area, unknown vocalist, Kyra Németh. We were amazed by her voice, her delivery, her assured poise, her inventive improvisation and by the enormous emotional charge emanating from her.
Without any further ado, I went up and invited her to come and sing at the BJC in the autumn, as our spring and summer calendar was already full. She will be accompanied by her pianist, Pingitzer Szilárd and her drummer, Kornél Süle, while Budapest will offer the services of that excellent bassist, Péter Oláh.
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, we're pleased to report that the BJC Bistro offers several Hungarian and international food specialities to enhance your enjoyment of great jazz.
