Bálint Gyémánt


Bálint Gyémánt is a versatile and inventive guitarist and composer who‘s constantly seeking to explore new musical territories. One of the most famous jazz guitarists in Hungary, he now renewed his trio with two young musicians, Vince Bartók on the bass guitar and Dániel Ferenc Szabó on drums. The main guiding principles of the team’s work together are freedom, experimentation and the search for new opportunities that have always been part of the philosophy of jazz.

“The trio is my personal creative workshop, where I can work with my exceptional, inspiring artist friends. Although we play my own compositions, my partners always play a major role in creating the designated sound. I feel like each formation is my own, but the trio reflects my own musical language the most. Pushing the boundaries and looking for new musical directions has always been important to me, which is why I wanted to create this fresh concept together with a new rhythm section", says Bálint Gyémánt. The young musicians are prominent members of their generation who not only speak the traditional language of jazz fluently, but even the most modern trends have a serious impact on their instrumental playing. The special feature of the trio's sound is that in addition to the acoustic drum, electric tones are also heard. Thus, although the orchestral line-up remained the classical jazz trio, the world of sound has become much more modern thanks to the technical equipment and effects, which also leaves more room for the creativity of the musicians.

His brand new album is set to release through Jazzhaus Records in January of 2024 and will be titled Vortex of Silence -  a perfect example of how Gyémánt tells beautiful personal stories through virtuoso and sensitive guitar playing.
