02 - Mátyás Pribojszki Band - 2008 - How Many More - It's Too Late Brother


"Mátyás Pribojszki is one of the finest young harp players to emerge from Eastern Europe. He plays both traditional and contemporary blues harmonica styles with a practised assurance which belies his years and his tone, phrasing and timing are right on the money.
This is a man to watch!" – was a short but apposite intro about Mátyás by Steve Baker, the prestigous British harmonica artist.

Mátyás Pribojszki is a 36-year-old man in command of a full range of creative talents – he appreciates all the legendary blues harp masters who inspired him, but next to being faithful to traditional roots, he builds his own contemporary style which will probably open a new chapter in harmonica playing – and not only in the blues genre alone.

Mátyás is out touring and performing, from one country to another and proving, festival after festival, that he is not only a true harmonica talent, but a singer, a songwriter and an amazing showman as well. He brings people to listen to his music, and to dance to his highly energetic live performances. He always manages to grabb the attention of the audience, night after night in a varied showcase of entertainment that doesn't rely on any rules and regulations. Mátyás has already toured more than 25 countries in Europe with his bands and and jammed together on the festivals' stages with such great blues icons as Duke Robillard (USA), Alex Schultz (USA), Howard Tate (USA), Otis Grand (UK), Carlos Del Junco (CAN), Herbie Goins (USA), Paul Lamb (UK), Andy J. Forest (USA), Tino Gonzales (USA) and from the new European generation e.g. Enrico Crivellaro (I), B.B. & the Blues Shacks (D), Ian Siegal (UK), Mike Sponza (I), Raphael Wressnig (A) and many others.

He started playing the harmonica at the age of 15, when he listened to a rare recording of the late Sonny Boy Williamson. In 1995 he founded his first band, the Blues Fools. The band’s reputation quickly grew, and the band became the most well-known Hungarian blues band on the European blues scene. During the 10 successful years together with his Blues Fools Mátyás recorded three albums with them.

In January 2004 Mátyás invited some new, mostly jazz-influenced professional musicians to form the Mátyás Pribojszki Band. His purpose with this main project is to achieve progressive music goals with a multi-genre band in which each member has great experience. They first album, titled „Flavours” (released in January 2005) contains entirely original contemporary compositions testify to the varied and accomplished art of Mátyás' quartet, together with their perception and mastery of other genres. For this album Mátyás specially invited three of his contemporary guitarist friends such as Ian Siegal (UK), Little G. (H), and Mike Sponza (I).
In 2006 Mátyás and his mesmerizing high quartet has just come back from a very inspiring tour in Belgium, with re-arranged songs, and lots of new impressions, back in Budapest, still inspired, they have decided to record a live dvd „Live in Budapest”a very dynamic club gig on the city’s popular A38 concert ship.
In 2008 May the Mátyás Pribojszki Band have made they new , and one of the best, contemporary blues recording, titled „How many more?”, and this brand-new, high class cd is the first golden record of the band!

In March 2009. Mátyás and his Austria’s blues brother Ripoff Raskolnikov released their brand-new acoustic album, titled „Room for two”.
In August 2010. the Mátyás Pribojszki Band have made a brand-new, 100% live cd, titled „Boogie on the Ship”. This is a very dynamic,real and fun blues album with full of great improvizations, and solos.

The Mátyás Pribojszki Band consists of harmonica, keyboards, bass, drums and guitar.Besides his musician career, as a most amazing world-class jazz/blues harmonica performer, Mátyás is the official distributor of the best harmonica manufactories, to the Hering, Seydel, Suzuki and dealer of the great Hohner and Lee Oskar harmonicas too.(www.harmonica.hu)
On the other hand, he has dozens of young harmonica students in Hungary and Mátyás also the author of a Hungarian harmonica school-book for beginners, titled “Harp School”. („Herfli Suli” –

”Mátyás Pribojszki is definitely a brilliant instrumentalist; his tasteful play can by all means compete with the best harmonica players of the blues planet. But the most interesting fact is probably that he is clearly on his way to a very personal and expressive style of his own that will help to redefine the role of his modest instrument in the close future. Thanks Matt, for your warm music.
Besides: the band sounds just great!” – quoted by the great master, Jean-Jacques Milteau.

Gergo Borlai says… “I brought this group together on March 2001. Not long after having had a bass player switch, we ended up with the lineup existing to this very day, featuring my friend and co-composer Peta Lukács on guitar, János Nagy on keyboards and my favorite rhythm-section companion Péter Papesch on the bass. By avoiding any kind of compromise, our music strives to break through the conventional boundaries between different genres. The music we are playing could be defined as ‘contemporary’, although it also encompasses elements, which are more accessible and thus easier to absorb. We don’t incorporate these out of compromise, but simply because we like them. We like all kinds of things. We really like ice cream for instance. With Jancsi we can sometimes eat up to 30-40 cones. It’s really hard to make modern instrumental music these days, since this genre has grown to be totally indifferent for the public. Luckily we’re all open for new things and happy to use all kinds of elements found in today’s music.”



Having released their second album, Gergo Borlai’s group a.k.a European Mantra - which has always been regarded as a kind of prototype on the Hungarian music scene - seems to have made a huge step during the past half-year. In contrast with the unruly eclecticism of their debut album, their second record seems to convey a more focused and mature artistry, which at the same time maintains the most significant values of this production: it’s matchless dynamics and complexity. Compared to their previous artistic practice characterized by it’s sway between invention and parody, their new material seems to be more elevated and serious, yet it continues to retain the vibrancy and playfulness so characteristic of the band’s compositions. With performances reaching the intensity of bands such as Liquid Tension Experiment or Tribal Tech, one would assume this album, like so many other studio recordings, is only a frail mock-up of the concerts. Wrong! The sound quality of this recording may definitely be set in line with the recordings of the above world-famous groups! This super-group featuring Gergo Borlai, János Nagy, Péter Lukács and Péter Papesch, with it’s two albums has significantly raised the bar for the Hungarian music scene.

And please check this video about Victor Ananias ... a man to remember.... We lost him a few days ago. He was supporter of natural way of agriculture ( actually different life it can be )  against mass production leading giant holding companies. He found Bugday Association ( Wheat ) for his ecological ideas. You better to hear his timeless voice in this video with english subtitle.
