Colorful and Complex... an intriguing ride!

In the best tradition of third stream exploration, Hungarian pianist, composer and arranger, Daniel Szabo has created a magnum opus deserving of the title and accolade... “Visionary” Legendary jazz-fusion drummer, Peter Erskine, lends his artistry throughout and has co-produced this project on his Fuzzy Music label. Erskine says: “The kaleidoscopic breadth of Szabo’s repertoire celebrates a blend of jazz, classical and film music idioms— robustly American yet genetically Hungarian. This is the sweetest fusion music I’ve played!”  

Daniel Szabo’s subtle nuances of chamber music joined with jazz sensibilities creates a pallet of new colors placed gracefully both inside and outside the lines of the coloring book. Daniel’s particular taste and character is influenced by the complex musical heritage of his Eastern-European roots. His outstanding line-up of musicians merge sublimely to manifest this ambitious work.

Peter Erskine’s storied career has propelled him through collaborations with just about every major player of the last two decades. Peter was voted ’Best Jazz Drummer of the Year’ ten times by Modern Drummer magazine and was elected into the magazine’s Hall of Fame in 2017. Erskine has been featured in everything from major jazz festivals to a solo concerto with the LA Phil, premiered at the Hollywood BowlPeter Erskine is indeed a man for all seasons!
