So Nice is a new Jazz recording from Hunnia Records. It features vocalist Eszter Lukács, Jazz Saxophone player Arpad Dennert and Double Bass player Marton Soos – all three also featured on Friends Talk, a Stereo Pure DSD 256 album that won the 2021 NativeDSD Album of the Year Award for Swing Jazz.

The album includes a number of standards including Shiny Stockings, So Nice, The Wee Small Hours of the Morning, The Nearness of You, Somewhere Over The Rainbow and It Had To Be You. 

Singer Eszter Lukacs tells us: “For years, István Gyárfás “Gyafi” and I have been playing jazz standards to our hearts’ content in a duo formation, taking advantage of the cozy atmosphere and freedom of the most intimate musical line-up. The sound of the band, which has since been joined by Arpad Dennert on saxophone and Márton Soós on double bass, tries to preserve the atmosphere of the original line-up. Béla Szalóky joins the band on flugelhorn for two songs, his playing making the already magical songs even more emotional.

‘So Nice”, although originally a working title, proved to be the perfect album title because of its positive connotations and multiple meanings. I like lyrics about love with an optimistic mood, so most of the songs on the record are on that theme.

The musicians on the album are all well-loved and well-respected representatives of the Hungarian jazz scene. I am truly grateful to have such wonderful musicians as Gyafi, Árpi, Marci and Béla as my partners in the making of this album.

I would like to thank sound engineer Gábor Halász, with whom it is always a great pleasure to work together, and Róbert Zoltán Hunka, the head of Hunnia Records, whose idea made this project possible.”
