It was a really great session with two talented guitar player without any cutting and tuning process. They are playing on incredible sounding guitars and custom made amps. The title of the nine-tune album of the two jazz guitar artists is simply Budapest. “I have lived in Budapest for more than twenty years, so I have my own history here. And long long stories to tell. I like the serenity of Városliget, the baths, the bustle of the ruin pubs, the wave of the Buda hills.”, translates Gábor Juhász the album into words. He himself is a key figure in his fellow musician’s Budapest stories, as Bálint Gyémánt learned to play the guitar from Juhász. He was the inspiration for Gyémánt to become a jazz musician.
