Product Notes

Diversity and synthesis have been basic characteristics of Bálint Gyémánt's career since the beginning. His love for the instrument and music took shape in him while he was studying classical music. The influence of a classical background can be felt to this day in his tone, his technique, and his mentality. However, the jazz genre, which is able to form an organic relationship with any music, is the most exciting inspiration for him. The formation of the Bálint Gyémánt Trio represents the fullest development to date of an artistic need long in the maturing for him, both as composer and performer. The songs presented on this album provide an insight into a creative microcosm that leaves broad space for the dialogue between the instruments. 'The trio is my playroom, and what's more, my partners are wonderful musical personalities, who are able to perfectly implement my musical ideas, while also providing enormous inspiration.' The soaring impressionist compositions are counterpoised by neo-Romantic ballads, including Indigo and the title track, True Listener, with a melodiousness that recalls Gábor Szabó. Four tracks feature the world-famous pianist Shai Maestro, as a guest of Bálint. Maestro, who concentrates on the deeper levels of emotion, is close to Bálint not only in age but also in artistic worldview. The guitarist says of their partnership: 'I wondered for a long time about how we could make certain compositions more complete for the recording session. Shai's participation is a dream come true; he shaped my compositions with incredible humility. We needed no rehearsal, or long explanations: we were able to communicate fluently through the language of jazz. On this disc we have recorded for posterity our first musical meeting, full of sparkling moments of spontaneity and risk. I learned a tremendous amount from this cooperation, and what's more I think his presence lifted our music-making as a trio to a new level, something for which I am very grateful.'
