The members of Hungarian jazz/pop/funk group Peet Project are still in their early twenties, but they have already released four albums – in addition to a “Debut Artist of the Year” title garnered at the Catalina Island JazzTrax Festival (2013). Their original music is a seductive and eclectic blend, reflecting influences encompassing Brian Culbertson (with whom they produced the opening track of their second CD), Candy Dulfer, George Duke, Earth Wind and Fire and The Rippingtons, among others. The group’s driving force is violinist, composer and producer Peter “Peet” Ferencz. He gives the band its unique sound through his use of violin as a lead instrument in an equivalent role to saxophone or keyboards. In 2014, Peet began to work on their most complex album to date, “Love”, with former bassist Dávid Szedlár and a brand new line-up comprising Attila Závodi (sax), Olivér Magán (keyboards), and twin brothers Martin and Marcell Gudics (bass and drums). This album showcases more energy, more vocals and a lot of Funk, Soul and Pop mingled with vintage stylistic flavors reminiscent of 70s and 80s music. The first single “Jazz & Wine” made it to the Billboard Smooth Jazz Top 30.
