As part of the 30 years freedom programs, one of the greatest contemporary jazz bands of Hungary, the János Nagy Trio will give two concerts during IdeeJazz!

Nagy János Trió poszterThe János Nagy Trio will celebrate its 25th birthday in 2019. The line-up has changed couple of times since, but the most important of them was when in 2014 the ‘obligatory’ double bass player of a traditional piano trio was replaced by a violinist.

In the spring of 2018 the trio – pianist János Nagy, violinist Frankie Lato and drummer Flóra Joubert – released Debussy 100, an album dedicated to the magnificent French composer, featuring French saxophonist Vincent Mascart. If this still wouldn’t be enough, this year a brand new other one, Yancha, will come out. The album, referring with its title to the pianist’s well-known nickname, features guest artists such as bass player Dominique Di Piazza and guitarist Mike Stern.

The group will perform on 7th November at 8.30pm in the Estonian National Museum in Tartu and on 8th November at 8.30pm in the Narva College of the University of Tartu.
