7th Day: 10 June 2018
21:00 Mihaly Borbely Quartet (Hungary
Mihály Borbély (saxophones, tárogató, flutes), Áron Tálas (piano), Balázs Horváth (bass), Hunor G. Szabó (drums) He is a great woodvind player and particularly experienced not only in traditional and world music but in jazz and contemporary music as well. He also has an exceptional group, where he can fully express himself and create modern music influenced by the European swing which has been developing for years in a central European country that has its own jazz identity and tradition combined with a Balkan touch. So, having his own straight international jazz sound, Mihaly Borbely’s Quartet has been releasing beautiful contemporary jazz albums for the last 15 years (Meselia Hill, Homage a Kodaly, Hungarian Jazz Rhapsody, Be by Me Tonight) which have an international presence as well as the group which stands out for its live performances in the European festivals and jazz clubs.
22:00 Isabella Lundgren & Carl Bagge Trio (Sweden)
Isabella Lundgren (vocals), Carl Bagge (piano), Niklas Fernkvist (bass), Daniel Fredriksson (drums) Isabella Lundgren is one of the most special jazz singers of Sweden. The quality of her voice and the way she performs has led many people to believe that it’s about time she replaced Monica Zetterlund in this tradition’s top position. However, Isabella Lundgren, through her four albums (It Had to Be You, Somehow Life Got in the Way, Isabella Sings the Treasures of Harold Arlen, Songs to Watch the Moon) seems to focus on classic American jazz standards and blues, following the steps of acclaimed singers such as Billie Holiday and Anita O’ Day. Isabella studied this big jazz tradition in New York before returning to Sweden and starting her own artistic path which is already highly successful.
23:00 Binker & Moses (UK)
Binker Golding (tenor saxophone), Moses Boyd (drums) This is one of the most dynamic and creative ensembles of the new generation of the modern British jazz scene. The saxophonist Binker Golding and the drummer Moses Boyd are musicians that are influenced by the richness of the 60s jazz, the hard bop and the free jazz and thus are creating their own esthetics in today’s plethora of different musical sounds. One can hear a saxophone that reminds us the historic sound of John Coltrane and Sonny Rollins and a drum set that goes beyond time limits, creating a true musical ritual. Having two magnificent albums (Dem Ones and Journey to the Mountain of Forever) and a third one (Children of the Ultra Blacks) on the production, Binker & Moses’ music is the best example of the creative status and high quality artistic level of the contemporary British jazz.
