Hackett, Steve / Djabe - Summer Storms and Rocking Rivers CD + DVD
This album was originally released only in Hungary a few years ago and it's great to see it get a chance at a wider audience now!
Djabe are a Hungarian world music / jazz / new music ensemble. The collected personnel is:
Ferenc Kovács (vocals, trumpet, violin)
Zoltán Kovács (keyboards)
Attila Égerházi (guitar, percussion)
Tamás Barabás (bass guitar)
Szilárd Banai (drums)
Steve Hackett (guitar, vocals)
These musicians have been working together since 2007, performing both Djabe's material and Hackett and Genesis material, which is what they do here
It allows for a unique slant on the better known material by musicians who push Steve out of his comfort zone and into doing something really cool.
"Summer Storms and Rocking Rivers was captured at a concert in Bratislava in July 2011 and a concert in Budapest in November 2012. The music within this release features well known Steve Hackett solo material alongside legendary Genesis material.
Djabe formed twenty years ago and are one of Hungary's most acclaimed Jazz groups in the world. Playing a fascinating fusion of jazz and rock styles, Djabe have performed many concerts globally since 2002.
At the Garana Jazz Festival in Romania, Steve Hackett & Djabe performed to an audience of 13,000 people, and now Summer Storms & Rocking Rivers captures wonderfully the magic of this collaboration on stage.
The DVD included in this two disc set features a concert in Bratislava in July 2011 and also includes bonus features of a short documentary, the piece Jacuzzi / Overnight Sleeper, recorded in November 2013 with the Hungarian Symphony Orchestra and the promotional video of the song Tears for Peace."
