Who said 'jazz is dead'? This is a beautiful music by the finest musicians from Hungary. The classical American art form has been globalized and here is the proof.

I am sure that the great composer Béla Bartók would be deeply proud of these young musicians from his own country. Kristóf Bacsó is not only an excellent composer but also a great performer who I have played with several times. I hope this album will get the success it deserves.

Thank you guys for the amazing live music.
