Live Reeds
(Élő nád - Zeneakadémia 2005.11.19.)
ethno jazz

Enlarge this picture! Dresch found his calling on the narrow trail betwen jazz and Hungarian folk music in an extraordinary way; or more precisely – it is he who blazed that trail. He didn’t choose the more fashionable fray of ’world music’, instead, like real, live reeds in the marsh he bends and sways between the two traditions – hence the title of this live concert recording.
Tradition only says something when it’s alive, otherwise it becomes objects in museums which can only be seen in glass cases. The music of Dresch’ band is tough; it withstands the blows of time. Through his choice of isntruments, Dresch brings alive that which can be summoned form the past, massive roots taking in vital energy, rusting those ’reeds’ with an original, fresh, rolling sound.
This music cuts, the improvisation scratches, making fresh wounds, always new personal ones. Mihály Dresch, as he says, always plays his own experiences, which is why it’s personal and so individual, so alive. Perhaps it’s strange that this is his group’s first distinctly concert recording, when we know that they live in concert, rather than in the studio. – György Szerbhorváth

Still Voyage
(Mozdulatlan utazás)
jazz world music

Enlarge this picture! ‘Mozdulatlan utazás’ [’Still Voyage’] is Dresch Quartet’s seventh album. On this album however, we hear a new Dresch Quartet, not to mention the appearance of a fifth band member. Its eccentric, unrestrained, well-polished pulse – coming neither entirely from jazz, nor from folk music of the Carpathian Basin, now bears a knowing self-confidence.

Mihály Dresch “Dudás” - tenor and soprano saxophone
Ferenc Kovács - violin
Mátyás Szandai – double bass
István Baló - drum

Balázs Unger - cimbalom

1.Tedd rá
2.Békesség - Csodafa
4.Nagy puszta
