On May 9, the Müpa Jazz Spring series continues, bringing live legends to Budapest throughout the year. Rebekka Bakken, considered a jazz star but also comfortable in the pop or blues genres, will kick off a whole host of shows at the Palace of Arts in May.
Kamas Washington’s first concert in Hungary will follow on June 26, which promises a sensational showcase of his many talents. The tenor saxophonist is an icon of 21st century modern jazz, which has attracted untold attention since the fusion period of the seventies. He’ll perform his hit Heaven and Earth album from 2018.
What’s more, Americans Lee Ritenour and Dave Grusin, who have 11 Grammy Awards and 54 Grammy nominations between them, will perform on June 29. The two masters of jazz have a special working relationship, resulting in 17 joint albums. A selection of their biggest hits will be performed to the awaiting crowds at Müpa.
