imageDjabe: Live in Blue
with Steve Hackett, Gulli Briem and John Nugent

GR-116-3,  DVD

Djabe’s album Down And Up was introduced in surround at the Pecsa Music Hall in Budapest, 1th of March 2013. After performing the whole of the album followed an extensive mix of the whole of Djabe’s walk of life. It was one of the best gigs in the band’s history with the surround sound soon to become legendary. The DVD replicates this experience perfectly. All of the included compositions provide the best quality 5.1 DTS sound derived from the multichannel, high-fidelity gig recordings, fantastically mixed by sound engineer Tamás Barabás. It can well be said that the record delivers the high-end quality accustomed to Djabe.

The band’s line-up – Szilárd Banai (drums), Tamás Barabás (bass guitar), Attila Égerházi (guitar), Ferenc Kovács (trumpet, violin and vocal), Zoltán Kovács (keyboard) – extended by Gulli Briem (percussion and drum) and John Nugent (saxophone).

Live in Blue DVD is the fourth installment in the ‘blue series’ of Djabe. The master content of course consists of the complete recorded audio and video material of the extremely well-received Down And Up album’s blue light-themed, surround gig of 2013, followed by the bonus content of the Blue Note Jazz Club performance recordings, in Vágújhely, Slovakia at November 8th, 2013. Latter gig was a joint performance with Steve Hackett. This compilation consists of songs not played at Pecsa Music Hall and primarily features Steve Hackett or Genesis compositions. In That Quiet Earth, Los Endos, Last Train To Istanbul and Walking Away From Rainbows are real fan titbits.
