István Grencsó has been an outstanding representative of avant-garde jazz in Hungary for decades. The saxophonist started his career in 1979 with the band Masina, and gained attention in the 1980’s as member of the Mihály Dresch Quartet and collaborating with György Szabados. After leaving Dresch in 1985, he formed the Grencsó Kollektíva, which has been his primary band ever since. Grencsó has made recordings and performed as leader of all kinds of formations from the trio to the big band amalgamating the elements of jazz, ethno music, pop, rock and old dance music in a unique way. He has also played with the band Makám, MAKUZ, and the avant-garde ensemble Kampec Dolores.
The latest formation of his features musicians of outstanding creativity, well-known on the Hungarian jazz scene, who will dedicate this night to a unique floating through the worlds of jazzy dance music, that will feature of course his avant-garde and free impro elements and interpretation as well.
