The major concerts at this three-day celebration of jazz will again entice the audience with a colourful set of offerings, since this will be the crème de la crème of Hungarian jazz performing, from the youngest generation to musicians with decades of experience. Taking the stage of the Festival Theatre on the first day will be the Áron Tálas Trio. Led by the eponymous pianist, drummer and composer whose reputation belies his young age, they'll be introducing the material from their first album, recently issued in Japan, to what will no doubt be an even larger audience. The second day will bring to the stage, under the artistic leadership of Attila László, a group of five of our country's superb jazz guitarists assembled to pay tribute to the memory of Hungarian guitar legend Attila Zoller, who died in 1998. The closing-day concert includes a distinctive figure in the Hungarian jazz scene: saxophonist and composer Kristóf Bacsó and his most important ensemble Triad, supplemented on this occasion by New York-based Israeli guitarist Gilad Hekselmann.
The unique sound of this trio formed in 2016 brings together the diverse personalities of the three musicians with the style of the classical jazz trio mixing with the more modern world of fusion jazz. The colourful tone of the band is typified by virtuoso improvisations, melodic themes, modern rhythmic elements and varied harmonies. Their first album, entitled Whirl, was released in March 2017 and includes eight of their own compositions, which helped them win the Jazz in the Park international competition in Kolozsvár.
