Aron Romhanyi trio
The trio was formed in 2002 in Budapest, Hungary. All three members are professionals from the young generation of jazz musicians in Hungary. The style of Gergely Mits bass-player and Péter Szendőfi drummer add zest to the songs composed and arranged by Aron Romhanyi pianist. The trio exclusively plays originals composed by Aron, and they perform the pieces with fire and passion, while maintaining precision and smoothness. They recorded their first album in 2004, entitled Passion and Purity.
All compositions on the album where written by Aron Romhanyi. The core of the music constitute of almost classic, standard-like melodies, and these are presented in various interesting arrangements. The final sound is modern, sweeping, but still easy-listening. The style could be defined as a Central European digest of swing, be-bop, latin, and modern jazz. Together with a suggestive performance all these elements definitely add up to a coherent, distinctive style.
A great virtue of the band is that the precise technical knowledge of the musicians does not mean having to listen to endless virtuoso skales, but results in an extroverted style full of fire and passion, which yields an ecstatic atmosphere at their concerts.
