Let’s just play around with the idea of a guy in his mid-twenties surfacing in New York as a formidable pianist, an original composer, a drummer good enough to teach his craft at Juilliards and a useful bass-guitar player all rolled into one. His chances of being heard and noted would be pretty good, news of him would travel fast in jazz circles, critics would latch on to this exciting fresh talent and by the time he came to the Old World he would be probably idolized even before he played a note on a European stage.

Fortunately for his homeland and, perhaps, unfortunately for him, the brilliant pianist on this album with all the attributes mentioned above, was born, trained and is playing in Hungary. Áron Tálas is only 27 but is already one of the go-to keyboard men in his country that is certainly not lacking in great pianists. As for his own compositions – and all the tunes are his own on this album – apart from their startling originality, there is an unpretentious freshness about them that would appeal even to a non-jazz audience. Yet it is just that fresh simplicity which makes these themes terrific vehicles for improvisation. In his playing Áron is equally capable of great lyricism and soaring passion. His opening tune, “Little Beggar” is a measured, reflective piece imbued with the rich Hungarian folk tradition. His passionate nature dominates on tracks like “Chicken Run”. On the fast passages one cannot help feeling that he would be an ideal interpreter of Bud Powell. Áron never slurs his notes and plays with admirable clarity.

Recorded at BMC Concert Hall on 9-10 August, 2017 by Zsolt Kiss
