At the Veszprem Fest

[Chick writes from Veszprem, Hungary, where he and Kenny Garrett went to see the students of Dohna’nyi at the Conservatory of Music.]

What a pleasant day at the music conservatory in Veszprem. The young musicians that performed for Kenny and myself were all very accomplished. And the folklore music that they played – some by Bartok – was amazing and really different. Strange rhythms I heard for the first time. When I see young artists make such great music, it gives me hope and inspiration.
