When I got invited to play, record and perform with Sándor Szabó by the end of last year I was very excited. I first heard Sándor's fresh approach to modern improvisation on a CD with German bass-player Ralf Gauck, whom we both know and have performed with. I was astonished by his sound, his ideas, and his great mastery of any multi-stringed instrument. Moreover, his approach to improvisation is very open, both in how he embraces and develops ideas from the musicians he is playing with, and how he listens to any kind of musical idea with openness, curiosity and willingness to create and tell a story together.  This type of sensitive and delicate listening is a very rare gift, which Sándor certainly has in abundance! This made the recording session a thrill for me personally, where I felt that I could play any kind of musical idea or expression, and it would be developed further by Sándor, and in this way our musical conversations would just flow naturally. I must also mention the great contribution from percussionist Balázs Major, who built on whatever Sándor and I were doing, and was always an enormous part of our musical conversation. I had also never played with Balázs before our recording this Easter in Hungary.

Meeting Sándor in his hometown Vác was also a great pleasure for me.  The first evening when we entered his studio I felt like I was entering another dimension. His custom-made instruments and high-end studio equipment, combined with the vision, wisdom and talent of such an experienced musician, created a most magical and inspiring sound. Today, almost three months later, I remember the recording as if it were yesterday! After this experience in Hungary I can truly say that I’m not the same musician that I was before, and I never will be. Some encounters are life-changing and this was definitely one of those.
