Máté Lachegyi started a new project in early 2019, still as a student at the Conservatory of Amsterdam. As a school ensemble, he played the music of Keith Jarrett’s so-called ‘European Quartet’ with French tenor saxophone player Adrien Losco, Israeli bass player Omer Govreenand Hungarian drummer Miklós Kovács. Soon original compositions have started to prevail in their repertoire. Máté played his MA final exam with this band, which has now been officially announced as a new stable band, and is called Máté Lachegyi Quartet. After two successful concerts in Hungary (Budapest, Vác) they will open the regular Tuesday jam session with a short concert in BIMHUIS on 10th December.
