TONY LAKATOS with his new project BLUE CHILI on tour ...

Tony Lakatos is undoubtedly  the  shining light of the saxophone in the German jazz scene. Like very few German jazz musicians before him, he has gained worldwide recognition and is constantly on the road in concerts to keep the legacy of jazz history alive, including current trends, so he has recently been seen a lot as an outstanding soloist of the ensemble  Web Web with Max Herre. Beyond all genres and pigeonholes, he has found his very own, suspended saxophone tone, both on the tenor and soprano saxophone. In 2021 he was awarded the Hessian Jazz Prize and now he has used the prize money to  put together an international  top cast in Berlin, with which he pays tribute to his idols.  In addition to Alex Sipiagin on  trumpet and flugelhorn, he is accompanied by Hans Glawischnigg on drums, Gregory Hutchinson on drums and the famous Danny Grisett on  piano and Fender Rhodes. Nine original compositions impressively demonstrate the mastery of the Frankfurter, who originally came from a Hungarian musical dynasty. With titles such as "Zoots Suits", "Eugen  Choose The Shorter Way" or "Mingus Diggs", the connoisseur will know which idols Lakatos recalls. Already from February this ensemble will go on an extensive European tour with numerous concerts in Germany - release date of BLUE CHILI: January 13, 2023
