The Kossuth and Liszt prize-winning Béla Szakcsi Lakatos, the Müpa Budapest Artist of the Season for 2017/2018, is a major innovator and the uncrowned king of Hungarian jazz. He has earned unrivalled praise for his achievements in jazz-rock and fusion jazz and has also successfully combined jazz with classical music and gypsy folk. His two sons are also distinguished piano players and will feature in this concert with outstanding musicians playing in a Hungarian-American band. The composer and woodwind player Chris Potter, who has a thousand ties to Hungary, is one of jazz's most sought after and highly regarded artists. As well as with Szakcsi, Potter has also played on the Müpa Budapest stage as a special guest of Mihály Dresch and as part of Pat Metheny's band.
