József Balázs graduated from the jazz department of the Ferenc Liszt University of Music, and was already oriented towards jazz during his early classical music training. With his first band, the Bop Machine, he took part in many competitions, such as the Jazz Juniors competition in Krakow, where the pianist received the prize for the best soloist.
The Balázs József Quintet was founded in 2005, and over time it has grown to become a significant domestic representative of melodic, modern cool. In 2007, the band leader won the Lakatos Ablakos Dezső jazz performance scholarship. In addition to his successes in the world of jazz, he is also recognized as an arranger and author in other genres (pop, film music). Back in 2009, in connection with his quintet’s debut album (I don’t got you mean), Oláh Kálmán wrote about him: ”He improvises in any style of formation, you can feel that he speaks perfectly and uses the native language of jazz with taste.” !

JUNE 28. // JAZZTERRACE 2024: SZALAY GÁBOR ORGAN TRIO

2024 June 28.
SZALAY GÁBOR ORGAN TRIO

Szalay Gábor – Guitar
Horváth Albert – Organ
Bágyi Balázs – Drums

admission: donation // start: 19:00

Most of the trio’s program, founded in 2023, consists of their own compositions and the compositions of the excellent jazz composer and pianist Theonius Monk. The joint playing of organ and guitar is not new in jazz music, this fact is also proven by countless recordings of jazz guitarists with organ.
In addition to the fact that they can complement each other in terms of sound, it also has a practical role, as the organist’s left hand replaces the double bass, while he can also play harmonies with his right hand in the accompaniment. When the organist improvises, the guitar takes over the accompaniment.
Among other things, this playing together makes the trio’s music special.

JUNE 14. // JAZZTERRACE 2024: GRENCSÓ PORT & LEWIS JORDAN

2024 June 14.
GRENCSÓ PORT & LEWIS JORDAN

Lewis Jordan – a-sax, poetry
Grencsó István – wind instruments
Benkő Róbert – Bass
Miklós Szilveszter – Drums

admission: donation // start: 19:00

For over 20 years Grencsó and Jordan have savored their international connection. From the early performances together at Gödör at Deák tér, Jelen near Blaha Lujza tér, and Trafó in Budapest, they have inspired each other into a whirlwind of improvisation. Since then, outside of Budapest, they have performed from Györ to Szeged, Békéscsaba and from Magyarkanizsa to Dunaszerdahely.
They have recorded twice on the BMC label (Homespun in Black and White and Local Time). Both musicians thrive in an atmosphere of free exploration, and they shape their sounds in a way to summon the spirits. Those spirits may come quietly, or they may come ferociously, but the summoning is what matters. Grencsó plays saxophones, clarinet, flute, and wind instruments of all kinds.
Jordan plays alto saxophone and adds his poetry to their presentations. Jordan, based in California, leads his Music at Large ensemble there and they have released four recent CDs, with Critical Mass (Innova 073) the latest.

Primul concert al terasei de jazz de vară deschide anul de 25 de ani de la Posticum. Programul coincide cu ultima ședință internațională (retragere) a călugărului iezuit elvețian și a maestrului zen Niklaus Brantschen. Programul este o mare întâlnire. Textele sacre și melodiile străvechi se întâlnesc cu jazz-ul și improvizațiile dansatoarei din Zurich Marianne Kaiser. Drept rămas bun, putem auzi câteva sfaturi personale de la maestrul zen Niklaus Brantschen: despre întâlnirea, sosirea și trăirea la maximum a vieții.

ZEYLA’s SINGING CIRCLE

Hey beautiful Soul, Let’s play!

Te invităm la o sesiune de joacă muzicală cu mult groove și muultă libertate de exprimare.
Prin improvizație vocală și ritmică, mișcare intuitivă, toning și playful songwriting vom descoperi rezonanță proprie, vom elibera ce vrea sa fie spus și vom crea ceva frumos ce n-a mai fost.
Pe langă toate acestea, vom cânta muzica făcută pe loc, printr-o tehnica numita Circle Singing, pe care Zeyla a învățat-o de la Bobby McFerrin (Don’t Worry, Be Happy).
Aceasta tehnica este mult iubită în țările vestice, pentru că oferă libertatea de a crea muzică spontană în grupuri de la 2 și până la câteva sute de oameni.
Mircea Ardeleanu ne va susține cu groove-uri internaționale fantastice la darbuka, udu și alte instrumente de percuție.
Așadar, te așteptăm cu drag în data de 5.4, ora 19:00 La Posticum, Oradea.

Ce te așteaptă, într-o privire:
Circle Songs
Cantat solistic
Ritm si Body-percussion
Groove-uri a cappella
Playful songwriting
Jocuri muzicale
Dans liber
Workshop-ul este potrivit pentru toți iubitorii de muzică indiferent de pregătirea lor muzicală.

Ne bucurăm că ne vedem în curând!

SZAKCSI LAKATOS ROBERT

An exceptionally gifted pianist, at home in both jazz and classical music. He walked away with the first prize from the solo piano competition at the 2000 Montreux Jazz Festival. In 2005 he was voted best soloist at the Avignon International Jazz Festival. Since then he has established a serious reputation for himself in the world of jazz. Jack DeJohnette, one of the jazz giants he has played with, had this to say: „I believe Robert is one of the best young pianists on the jazz scene today”.
Another one-time musical partner, John Patitucci gave the following opinion on Robert’s playing: „His sound and touch on the piano are highly developed and very lyrical” Apart from DeJohnette and Patitucci, Robert has played with the likes of Reggie Johnson, Palle Danielsson, Jojo Mayer, Erik Truffaz, Randy Brecker, Bill Evans,Rick Margitza, Hiram Bullock, Ravi Coltrane, Franz Liszt Chamber Orchestra, Hungarian Radio Symphonic Orchestra – and the list is far from complete.
In Japan, which is the biggest market for jazz today, Robert Lakatos has already recorded seven albums and the eighth is about to be launched with Gregory Hutchinson on the drums. Robert is a member of the Bolla Quartet.

MAGYAR BORI  Sextet

FEATURING:

Bori Magyar – vocals
Zoltán Mizsei – keyboards, electronics, vocals
Dániel Kardos – guitar
Béla Ágoston – winds
Ábel Dénes – double bass
László Farkas Keönch – percussion, drums, vocals

“How is it in this wide world to discover unknown feelings and sounds in the familiar, the familiar in the unknown. To spin with the earth, to travel on the flow, to meet unexpected homeliness in places not yet visited. We have embarked on an adventurous journey together in this wide world, and we are still at the beginning, we are looking forward to continuing!” (Bori Magyar)

Bori Magyar has been an active singer in Hungarian ethno and world music since 2007. As an imprint of her musical inspirations over the past ten years, she produced her first solo album, which she will present at Opus too. She invited the instrumental contributors to the album, who are also the dominant representatives of Hungarian world music, from her current and former fellow musicians. Based on her own ideas, the singer commissioned Zoltán Mizsei and Dániel Kardos to arrange the music of the album, which draws mainly from the traditional music sources of Hungarian and other nationalities.

March 08. – 6pm // JAZZWEEKEND – KERUB Trio

POSTICUM JAZZWEEKEND 2024

Friday
March 08., 6pm, Jazzland:

KERUB (trio)

Béla Ágoston – C-melody, soprano saxophone, alto clarinet, glissonic, hulu, duda, tilinkó, fujara, pánsíp, havasi kürt, steel drum, hö-mi, vocals
Zoltán Mizsei – keyboards, piano, hö-mi, vocals
László Farkas Keönch – cajon, udu, darbuka, kanjira, mouth harp, carillon, bells, shaker, effects, hö-mi, vocals


Kerub invites the audience to a special breather of free music. Akin musical interest, openness, similar vision and secession from the creative workday life, spent with tight-kept wings, turn the common improvisation to a celebration, resembling to a free soaring where Nothing-but-Nothing has been discussed but the time to be spent with playing. In the symbiosis of the trio, togetherness is the only source of inspiration for their gliding music. Though this musical retreat, based on contemporary improvisation techniques, may be a fragile flying modus, the participants speak a common language and hear each other in the right way. Cherubs have four faces, Kerub just three. Perhaps the fourth one is an Ancestor invoked by them – speaking in their tones.
