The band was established by Hungarian drummer Balázs Balogh in 2014.
They play Balázs’ compositions and arrangements. His music is based on the hard-bop tradition of jazz, but involves everything that has influenced the composer at a time, such as jazz-rock, free jazz, the folk music of Eastern-Europe, and the Balkans, odd-meters and polyrhythms, etc…
They’ve had appearances in several countries of Central-Europe including Slovenia, Austria, Hungary, and Italy. They participated and won second prize at Zilina International Jazz Contest in Slovakia (2015), and won the Best Band Prize at Sibiu Jazz Festival, Romania (2016).
Their first album entitled „Borderline Inspirations” was released in April 2018 by Unit Records, and contains only original compositions of the band leader. Two compositions of the CD were also arranged and performed by the RTV Big Band Slovenija.
They have toured extensively in 2018, presenting their album in six countries, including B-flat Jazz Club (Berlin), Jazz Dock (Prague), Opus Jazz Club (Budapest), Jazzwerkstatt Festival (Graz), Sibiu Jazz Festival (Sibiu), Sziget Festival (Budapest), Valley Of Arts (Kapolcs).
