Live recording of the Kéknyúl (Blue Bunny) Hammond Trio in Dürer Gardens, Budapest, Hungary. The concert was played in December 2010.
These guys are truly in a league of their own, playing a soulful version of funk and jazz that anyone with a heartbeat and a foot to tap can relate to. A very dynamic and powerful trio with none other than the B-3 organ, played by virtuoso organist and composer Premecz Mátyás holding down the groove and pounding out the bass lines. It is no mystery to most that Budapest is home to some of the finest and most skilled craftsmen of jazz in all of the Europe, this group uses the skills of some of those very talented and creative styles to its advantage. It is quite rare (if possible at all) to find a group like this anywhere in Hungary, their musical stylings show some great influences from such American masters and bands like Medeski, Martin & Wood, John Scofield, and The Charlie Hunter trio. this is a great band that takes no prisoners when it comes to throwing down some fresh and original European soul flavor on classic American funk grooves.
