ZONE REVIEWS

Our latest album ‘ZONE’ got very positive feedback, here are some examples of this reviews:

“The 'Zone', in my opinion, is one of the great surprises of this year.” Jan Hocek (jazzport.cz)

“Such songs are these that will light the fire of excitement in the audience and keep that fire burning until the very last note.” Mihály Czékus (hifipiac.hu)

“1705 is an extraordinary phenomenon in the European jazz scene. Not only their compositions on the album “Zone” are unique and thoughtful, but the three instrumentalists, who are undoubtedly excellent and the trio’s diverse use of electronic effects perhaps define new formula for a twenty-first century fusion.” Robert Ratajczak (LongPlay)

“I am telling you: this is a bloody good record." Zoltán Trencsényi (Népszabadság)

"1705 is alert, fast and always fiery. Their answer to every musical challenge is wonderfully reckless: they simply set the bar higher and delight in climbing breathtakingly from ledge to vaunted ledge, springing like mythical characters with super (musical) power." Raul De Gama (jazzdagama.com)

“On its own merits it could be very difficult to outdo the 'Zone'.” Barbara Bércesi (Gramofon)

“...the 'Zone' is an album of an era; listen to it, it is worth it!” Károly Gáspár (jazzma.hu)

ABOUT 1705

 

The post-jazz keyboard trio's music produces a homogeneous whole while combining dozens of influences: the melody and dynamism of popular music, the freshness and sounds of electronic music, the straining of classical music to achieve harmony, the diversity of world music and, of course, the freedom of jazz and its delicate combinations. In addition to improvisations that often seem to drift towards infinity, Zsolt's piano play often builds on the complete independence of his two hands and is immediately recognizable, András's unusual set of percussion instruments (on which he sometimes plays with almost complete freedom, sometimes like a sophisticatedly programmed drum machine), and Attila’s distinctive voice on the electric bass are all hallmarks of 1705.

ZSOLT KALTENECKER

electric and acoustic pianos, sampler, electronics

Born in 1970 in Budapest, Zsolt began his classical musical training at the age of eight. After a few years, his interest turned to improvisation and composition. Having graduated in jazz piano from the Franz Liszt Academy of Music in 1996, he embarked on a private trip to New York to study with Jaki Byard in autumn of the same year. He has released sixteen records under his own name, among them the 1999 album “Songs from the 20th Century”, which was awarded the prize for Hungarian Jazz Record of the Year”.

 

Since 1995 he has been working with the best hungarian musicians. Beside his solo efforts presently he plays in the 1705 and the progressive metal band Special Providence. He had many international concerts all over Europe and also in Japan. Since 2003 he has been playing mostly electric pianos, synthesizers and electric organs. His characteristically individual style and „sound” is perhaps the best described by the critic, Zoltán Végső: „ We can perhaps find the basics somewhere in the vicinity of modal jazz, where the rhythm, polytextural mentality, method of musical performance and sound effects are always more important than harmony, still horizontal planes build on one another thus a strange vertical structure can emerge, i.e. we can hear and feel the harmonic texture. This musical world extends to several directions and still the audience can feel the clean forms and intentions, and not the intertwined tunes and receive a jazz music that is enjoyable in its every element.”

ATTILA FEHÉRVÁRI

bass guitars

He was born in 1978 in Budapest, grew up in Szentendre. At age of 13 started playing acoustic guitar by the inspiration of his father, but soon he switched to electric bass because of a friend’s request. He earned his diploma in 2004 at the prestigious University of Musical Arts, with a major in Jazz Bass guitar in Budapest. He works with countless bands, theater orchestras as a member or as session artist on live shows and in studio as well. The most significant bands through his career are Special Providence (2010-), Robert Hrutka’s Band (2009-), Váczi Eszter és a Szörp (1999-2004), Black Out (1997-). He joined to 1705 Trio in summer of 2016.

ANDRÁS DÉS

percussion

András was born in 1978 in Budapest. Taking up musical studies in classical percussion at the age of seven, he developed an interest in world percussion instruments at secondary school. In parallel with this, he also began playing jazz, graduating from the jazz department of the Franz Liszt Academy of Music in 2005. Over the years, he has been a part of several leading jazz ensembles, while performing as a regular musical partner of singers from the world music scene. He developed his characteristic sound with a particular set of instruments of his own selection. Apart from collaborations with writers and poets, András is also the author and performer of a solo theatre piece, „Unblinking”. His sensitivity for social issues makes him a remarkable figure on the Hungarian jazz scene. As a composer, he has collaborated in film and theatre productions, while touring all over the world as a performer. He has played music on numerous major stages, from Carnegie Hall to Covent Garden and the World Expo in Shanghai.
