One of the most famous jazz guitarists in Hungary, Bálint Gyémánt, renewed his trio with young musicians. The main guiding principles of the team’s work together are freedom, experimentation and the search for new opportunities that have always been part of the basic concept of jazz.

“The trio is my personal creative workshop, where I can work with my exceptional, inspiring artist friends. Although we play my own compositions, my partners always play a major role in creating the sound. I feel like each formation is my own, but the trio reflects my own musical language the most. Pushing the boundaries and looking for new musical directions has always been important to me, which is why I wanted to create this fresh concept together with a new rhythm section", says Bálint Gyémánt, who works with Vince Bartók and Dániel Ferenc Szabó in his renewed trio. These young musicians are prominent members of their generation who not only speak the traditional language of jazz fluently, but even the most modern trends have a serious impact on their instrumental playing. The special feature of the trio's sound is that in addition to the acoustic drum, electric tones are also heard. Thus, although the orchestral line-up remained the classical jazz trio, the world of sound has become much more modern thanks to the technical equipment and effects, which also leaves more room for the creativity of the musicians.

On his album entitled True Listener, Bálint Gyémánt hosted the Israeli pianist Shai Maestro. The album was published by the Budapest Music Center and has received excellent reviews from all over the world. This evening, listeners will get an insight into rethinking the compositions from the previous album and the latest songs.
