I just finished a short tour with Lionel Loueke’s trio in Europe. We’ve been playing together as a trio with Massimo Biolcati on bass since 18 years. Here is a clip from the Bray Jazz Fest in Ireland. More to come this month. Stay tuned 🙂
Last year, while I was on tour in Japan, we recorded some of the shows. Here I am playing a solo in 17/4 on Lionel Loueke’s tune, “Even Teens”. I’ve been playing in Lionel’s trio along with Massimo Biolcati on bass for 18 years now and we still keep surprising each other. Taking risks is one of the most exciting thing in life and with this band we definitely do that a lot. Enjoy this video 🙂
This is my tribute to the late great Clyde Stubblefield! R.I.P.
Yesterday we lost another legend…R.I.P. Clyde Stubblefield…He was an influence on all of us. Here's my gratitude for him.

I was closing the year with a great concert in my hometown with one of my best friend, piano player, Olah Tzumo. We played the new music that I’ve been writing for the last half year and I am very happy about the outcome. We had a great show and with this memory I’d like to wish everyone a Very Happy New Year and lots of happiness for the upcoming years!
We had a great week in Budapest at the Ferenc Liszt Academy and Bartok Conservatory, where I was doing intensive masterclasses every day from 11am to 5pm for 4 days! Great students, great vibe and lots of fun. Big thanks to Geroly Tamas, Hollo Aurel, Bacso Kristof, Olah Tzumo, Karmacsi Zita and my gear family, Zildjian cymbals, DW-drums, Remo drumheads and VicFirth Sticks!
I am going to teach a 4 day masterclass between November 26-29th in Budapest at the Liszt Ferenc Zeneművészeti Egyetem – Bartók Béla Zeneművészeti és Hangszerészképző Gyakorló Szakgimnázium; Ferencsik teremben.
1065 Budapest, Nagymező utca 1.

Last year I had the pleasure to visit again the Zildjian factory. As I was there, I picked up some new cymbals. One thing led to another, and before I realized it, I was recording a new video featuring my new and my custom made cymbals . Check it out below:
Incredibly excited to share this news! Earlier this year I was in Oxnard to record a promo video for DW Drums and the footage was just released. I was testing the DW Frequent Flyer kit and sure enough there was no surprise to realize once again that DW came up with something incredible. Light weight but full pro sound!
