Embark on 'The Quest,' a New Album by Guitarist Andreas Varady, on Radar
Guitarist Andreas Varady first impressed his bass-playing father by learning Kenny Dorham's "Blue Bossa" when he was 4. His mentor, producer Quincy Jones, became a fan when Andreas appeared at the Montreux Jazz Festival at 15.
The point is not age, but rather a deep sophistication and spontaneity of expression, morphing a love for Django Reinhardt's gypsy music with chops set in the modern vernacular. It's a palette influenced by everything from John Coltrane to Bill Frisell — and even Radiohead and A Tribe Called Quest. Alongside his father, Bandi, on bass, brother Adrian on drums, saxophonist Radovan Tariska and pianist Benito Gonzalez, Andreas Varady's music is a spirited invitation worth accepting.
