The garden of Király Thermal Bath will be filled with sound waves by four young jazz musicians, the diving is recommended with open ears. Eight-hand free improvisation for two saxophones, two guitars and a female act sculpture.”

Lark Duo @ Sargfabrik

It has been some time since we have played with Boglárka Bábiczki last time, but we had played so much before and it felt just so good to do it again. Our old Lark duo appeared again on Acoustic Monday 2nd May, at Sargfabrik in Vienna. We are planning to do more in the summer, I’m looking forward.

LAD Scholarship presents: János Ávéd & Gábor Csongrádi

It was a great honor for us to be awarded with the Lakatos Ablakos Dezső Jazz Performer Scholarship in 2009. This evening was organized by Filharmónia Budapest and Budapest Jazz Club, we will have guitarist Attila László as our host and special guest, one of the curators of the scholarship. We will play some tunes from him and many tunes written by me and János. We are looking forward very much..
