The accomplished and versatile Nemeth has been one of the most sought after drummers in his native Hungary as well as in the US. Nemeth is well regarded for his imaginative work with the Lionel Loueke Trio and GilFeMa and has traveled, performed and collaborated extensively as a bandleader, co-leader, sideman and educator as well as initiating creative projects of his own.
Internationally renowned saxophonist/ composer/educator, Dayna Stephens, is a force of nature. A fluid, vigorous soloist with a warm, soulful sound, Dayna has proven himself a master of composition and arrangement, a highly acclaimed band leader and an in-demand sideman for contemporary jazz masters such as Kenny Barron, Al Foster, Idris Mohammed, Taylor Eigsti and Roy Hargrove - placing first in the Downbeat Critics Poll for Tenor Sax Rising Star.
Hailing from a Swedish/Italian family, Biolcati has worked with some of jazz’s most celebrated artists, including tours with Paquito D’Rivera, Terence Blanchard, Ravi Coltrane, Lizz Wright, and Luciana Souza. As a leader he released 2008’s Persona on Obliqsound, an ambitious debut album of original compositions played by Loueke, pianist/accordionist Peter Rende, and drummer Jeff Ballard, with vocal contributions by Lizz Wright and Gretchen Parlato.
