Esoteric Recordings is pleased to announce the release of the new studio album by Hungarian band DJABE, “THE MAGIC STAG”.
Djabe is one of the finest Progressive / Jazz fusion bands working in the world today. They are also known to a wider audience outside of their native land thanks to a series of collaborative albums and live appearances with the legendary solo musician and ex-Genesis member STEVE HACKETT.
DJABE features Tamas Barabas (bass guitar), Attila Egerhazi (acoustic and electric guitar, percussion), Áron Koós-Hutás (flugelhorn, trumpet), János Nagy (keyboards) and Péter Kaszás (drums, lead vocal) and their music contains influences from progressive rock, jazz and world music. Their new album is inspired by the work of the painter, Imre Égerházi (father of Attila Égerházi).
By the new millennium Imre Égerházi was regarded as one of the Alföld’s leading masters. He had gained great recognition in Hungary and beyond its borders for his art and his organizational work in the world of art. He also did much for artistic communities and colleagues. His work and life inspired the musicians to create “THE MAGIC STAG”.
STEVE HACKETT not only co-wrote the lyrics of the album’s title track with his wife JO HACKETT, but he also plays guitar on seven of the album tracks and acts as narrator. The album also features guest ROB TOWNSEND on tenor saxophone (also from Steve Hackett’s band). Tar genius Malik Mansurov also plays on several tracks, whilst former Djabe members, Ferenc Muck and Tibor Karvaly also contribute. László Szabó also adds his magical Sitar playing to the album.
“THE MAGIC STAG”, is a celebration of the legend of the mystic Hungarian deer, the myths and legends of the Magyars and the paintings of Imre Égerházi. This deluxe digipak release also includes a DVD, featuring high resolution 5.1 Surround Sound and Stereo mixes of the album, along with some live video extras and a documentary. The set also features a 32 page booklet with paintings by Imre Égerházi.
