Barabás Lőrinc Solo


Lőrinc Barabás started his solo career with his 2013 album Sastra, followed by Elevator Dance Music in 2015 and Algorhythms in 2019. His latest album, "22", released at the end of 2023, shows another face of him: compared to his previous solo album, the piano is even more prominent; there are several compositions in which he doesn’t even play the trumpet. Although there is some improvisation, it has little to do with jazz: the minimalist, repetitive pieces are close in spirit to the neoclassical movement of Nils Frahm and Ólafur Arnalds. 


According to Lőrinc Barabás, the melancholic, film music-like tracks express the need to slow down and turn inwards in a speeding world. World-renowned Japanese jazz trumpeter Takuya Kuroda wrote of "22": "Beautiful melody throughout the album. Amazing compositions with great theme development. Super soulful playing on both piano and the trumpet."

  • Algorhythms (2019)

Barabás Lőrinc Quartet


The quartet was formed in 2015 by Lőrinc Barabás because he missed the team spirit he was used to in his early Eklektric formation, as the line-up at his Random Szerda’s jazz jams was constantly changing. On their first two albums groovy rhythms, upbeat bass runs, keyboards, and trumpet evoke the improvisational fusion jazz world of the 1970s.

In 2021, the Barabás Lőrinc Quartet has been completely revamped with a new line-up and sound. The latest album 'Open' is more experimental than the previous ones, with style and sound reminiscent of Miles Davis' and Erik Truffaz's jazz fusion albums. The new band has reinterpreted previous songs and made them part of their musical journey, as they have proven in numerous local and international performances.
