Saturday – November 10  Jazz&Blues Club

Gyárfás–Premecz Organ Trio

Organ Grinder’s Suite

György Jeszenszky – drums

István Gyárfás – guitar

Mátyás Premecz – Hammond organ

There is a great void in the Hungarian jazz scene when it comes to the real guitar-Hammond sound. The movements of the musical piece entitled Organ Grinder’s Suite recall the style of jazz which began its journey of conquest around the world at the end of the 1950s and the beginning of the 1960s, and commemorate the most prominent, legendary representatives of the style.

The ten movements of the suite are closely linked, keeping the two dominant instruments in focus. The guitar and the Hammond complement each other, and while they are usually in harmony, they often talk softly, argue, and sometimes compete with one another; at times, one even seems to take control over the other. Eventually, they return to the starting point, where again there is harmony. Throughout all this, the swing pulsates like a slow, yet unstoppable river.

The Hammond parts are played by the young and talented Mátyás Premecz on the legendary B-3 Hammond organ. The drums are played by the accomplished György Jeszenszky, who is one of the most prominent representatives of this instrument in Hungary, and also teaches at the Drums Department of the Liszt Ferenc Music Academy. (István Gyárfás jazz guitarist)

István Gyárfás was awarded the title of “guitarist of the year” once more in 2018, being voted favourite guitar player by three categories on the audience, fellow musicians and music critics.
