Pro Arte, Artisjus and Fonogram award winning István Alapi’s fusion instrumental album Inner Vortex features 10 original compositions. This release is, in its style and atmosphere, a direct sequel to the Jazz Album Of The Year and Fonogram award-winner 2012 album niXfactor, also by Alapi.
István Alapi’s compositions are hallmarked by quality, experimentation and the crossover of genres, and this album is no exception.
The project featured well-known musicians like János Nagy (piano), Zoltán Lantos (violin), Márk Beke (synthesizer), Gergő Mits (bass guitar), István Csányi (saxophone) and Szilárd Banai (drums).
Insane virtuosity! Wow… you guys are good.
I would not be able to sing it to after first listen but you cats are some of the best musicians I have heard in a long time.
Fun stuff… but probably won’t get a lot of girls to the gigs. (laughs)
I mean that as a wink-wink… (laughs)
Not hit songs in here but f***g amazing playing. Well done.
Wish you the very best luck with this project and my deep respect to all the players on this!
