For more than a decade, she has been living parallel lives straddling the pop and jazz worlds: in the former with her solo albums co-created with songwriter Krisztián Szakos, and in the latter at the head of the quartet that has borne her name since she founded it in 2008. Their first studio album was immediately nominated for a Fonogram Award. Currently working on her fourth solo record, Orsi will be whisking tonight's audience all the way to America and the New York of Woody Allen and swing music. The director, then known primarily as a stand-up comedian, started making his jazz-infused films in the city in the 1960s. Ever since, nearly all his films have been set in the "Big Apple” to the sounds of swing. As a fan of Allen's films, the great international metropolis that serves as their setting and their swing soundtrack, Orsi is giving her concert the feel of a trip to the iconic scenes, sites and eras of the director's cinematic oeuvre. Helping in this regard is one of Hungary's most qualified experts: actor András Kern, who not only provides Allen's Hungarian "voice” in dubbed versions of his films, he has also for decades played the lead in performances of Play It Again, Sam at the Comedy Theatre of Budapest.
