A very interesting material, both in mood and instrumentation, of compositions by Gábor Juhász, performed by the Juhász Gábor Trio, Tony Lakatos (saxophone) and Júlia Karosi (vocals), with musical thoughts about the planets of the Solar System. The tape version of the Planets album was mixed live in stereo at the Digital Pro Studio, the recording location, and is pure analogue material without any post-production.The works on the Planets album, written by composer/jazz guitarist Gábor Juhász, were inspired by long stargazing evenings during the Pandemic. His compositions reflect the ethereal, mystical and distant world of the planets and, simultaneously, the lonely genius of Copernicus: humanity’s restless, constant striving for further discovery.
Gábor Juhász said that playing his new compositions in the studio, knowing that the music would be available to a broader audience without any editing or post-production, was an exciting task with a high level of responsibility. This recording was also a unique experience for world-famous saxophonist Tony Lakatos, who also highlighted the talent of Júlia Karosi and the “fantastic musicians of the trio”. According to Tony, the enchanting female voice represents the Venusian character of the planets.
The singer added that the studio recording was born from a collective experience, “breathing in, flowing, and embracing the sounds of the music was soul- touching”. The different versions of the Planets album, recorded in two different ways and released in various formats, also offer listeners an excellent opportunity to educate themselves and gain a better appreciation of the losses in the subtle nuances of sound in the search for the perfect commercial product.
