Contrasts and dissonance, improvisation and diversity, joy and spleen, a contemporary sense of life and a grotesque, raw atmosphere, behind which some kind of charm and kindness flows. So much contrast reveals an organically evolving music in which elaborate forms and spontaneous moments alternate with the power of surprise. The Nagy Emma Quintet, founded in 2018 won the professional prize of the Müpa Jazz Showcase based on the votes of the international jury in 2019.

Their first album, Set to Face, which features their own compositions, was also released this year. "On the material, the tension of the cacophony is always resolved by a bass or piano solo, or Emma’s soft, dream-waking voice" - wrote the Keret blog about the record. Their second album, LFO (Low Frequency Oscillator), recorded this summer, presents a clean music world that feels the tradition of twentieth-century jazz singing and the music world of today. Ballads, powerful throbbing, alternating rhythms, and loud solos suggests: all contradictions are natural.
