An electric live band and a vessel of the burgeoning jazz, hip-hop & improv scene from Budapest, Jazzbois have been making waves internationally with their cosmic, beat-heavy, jazz and groove.
From local beginnings, their music was picked up on multiple editorial playlists on Spotify & Apple Music, resulting in millions of streams. But it’s offline, live on stage where the project comes alive. As all their songs are recorded in the moment and edited in post production, they have to be learnt again. Live, they never play anything the same way twice, often dropping in motifs and riffs from some jazz classics.
Taking inspiration from contemporaries like Yussef Dayes, Moses Boyd, Robert Glasper and Madlib whilst spiritually connected to the jazz fusion masters of the past like Azymuth, Chick Corea and Weather Report.
With more releases in the pipeline, and with live dates piling up, Jazzbois are clearly in the ascendance. Just three musicians, three instruments and possessing some serious musical clout, a sure-winner for jazz-heads, new and old.
