Mihaly Dresch

I heard the Hungarian jazz and folk saxophonist — Mihaly Dresch — in Budapest one Christmas and I fell in love completely. I put the CD on and straight away his tone, control and dexterity was enough to make me get up out of my seat and turn the volume way up. I wanted to just be immersed in this music. But aside from his playing, his compositions are breathtaking.

The album, Quiet As It Is, from 2001, is my favourite. Along with his band, they capture something timeless, and for me, otherworldy – the melodies are based on Hungarian folk tunes, but the playing swings and is influenced by jazzers, like Archie Shepp (with whom Dresch collaborated) and John Coltrane. This stuff is really something else.
