The Hungarian jazz community looks back on the Binder Quartet, which operated in the late 70s and early 80s, as one of the defining ensembles of the era. Károly Binder founded a new quartet in 2012 and was joined alongside his long-term partner Mihály Borbély by two outstanding young musicians. Ákos Benkó has taught drums at the Ferenc Liszt Academy of Music since 2014, while the Junior Prima Award-winner Tibor Fonay graduated in jazz bass and bass guitar from the same school in 2015. Károly Bin...der recorded two albums in 2015: Retropolis 2 places Hungarian folk music in the context of modern jazz, and Old Dreams, New Dimensions evokes the old Binder Quartet while also exploring up new directions. The past and present will also be connected by the presence of Mihály Dresch at this presentation of two albums in one.
