Excited to have Attila home for the holidays!!

Come and hear great music from Attila's new album, RIDE, as it is officially launched in Victoria at Hermann's Jazz Club.
This mixture of world music and jazz is filled with exciting rhythms, lyrical melodies and is sure to take you on a musical ride.

The album has been receiving regular airplay on Toronto's Jazz-FM and CBC radio, as well as several U.S. and international radio stations. It has also had positive feedback from distinguished musicians and radio personalities:

“I think it's a masterpiece on every level. Your compositions are great, the playing (by everyone) is sensational and the sound is beautiful. Your own playing always knocks me out.”
-Don Thompson - Canadian Jazz Legend (recorded with Jim Hall, George Shearing, Paul Desmond)

“Attila’s new recording Ride is an explosion of incredible playing married to great compositions.The influences are many, but the sound is uniquely his own. His music has been sounding great on JAZZFM91”
-Brad Barker - Musical Director/On-Air Host, Jazz-FM91, Toronto


For this special performance Attila has invited outstanding Toronto drummer Richard Brisco - and the great Victoria bassist, Sean Drabitt will round out the trio.

The Hungarian-born pianist has established himself as a jazz/world music artist both locally and internationally, who loves bringing ethnic musical influences into his work.

As a performer, he has toured world-wide with oscar-winner A.R. Rahman playing at venues such as Wembley Stadium and Sydney Superdome, played centre stage at the 61st primetime Emmy Awards Governor's Ball in Los Angeles with his own Quartet, and played with Indian musical masters Zakir Hussain and Hariharan at Madison Square Garden Theater in New York.

In the recording studio, he has produced and performed on over 100 internationally distributed albums, winning several gold and platinum album awards in Canada and the US.
