Bebop Spoken There

Brian Dee: "I feel my generation had one advantage over today's players in that we were not musically educated in colleges, so we all sounded different. I could tell who it was just by the sound." - (Jazz Rag, Summer 2020).

Scarborough Jazz Festival - Preview 7: Andreas Varady Quartet


Sunday Sept., 25, 2.15pm: Andreas Varady Quartet

Top American bass player Mike Janisch emailed Festival programmer Mike Gordon: 'There is a young 13 year old guitarist from Ireland, originally from Slovakia.  His name is Andreas Varady, and he's a complete prodigy.  Martin Taylor was floored by him and wants to do a duet recording with him. They flew me over to play on his debut album, and I was completely freaked out at how good he was.  He's playing better than most professional guitarists all over the world, and has more natural talent than any young person I've ever seen.'
'The CD arrived,' said Mike, 'and after one listen I made the booking!'
With Andreas are Bandy Varady (guitar), David Lyttle (drums) and Mike Janisch.
In March Andreas became the youngest musician to headline at London's legendary Ronnie Scott's.
Isn't this just going to be something else? Lance.

This boy is totally wicked! I've been playing the guitar for quite some time now and I haven't reached that milestone of playing the guitar like that! Damn, I am envious of his fingers!
