5 December 2009 was one of the best gigs of my musical career! We had the pleasure to play at the Jazzkeller in Miltach, which is in my opinion the best Jazzclub in Germany. There was a fantastic audience and also club owner Alois "Boda" Breu and his wonderful wife. After the gig we were able to enjoy the delicious beer and food that Boda had to offer. A jazz musician´s "heaven" if there ever was one!
The new CD from O´Mara Hornek Scales Lettner "ACENTRIC" is now available on Marangani Records!
Jackie Orszaczky a dear friend and wonderful musician passed away on February 3rd in Sydney. Jackie was the single most important person who helped me in my early years to develop as a musician. He gave me free lessons, let me sit in on his gigs, invited me to join his band, recommended me to other musicians and also produced my first record in 1980. He also encouraged me to go overseas. His recommendation that I should contact Attila Zoller in New York led me on to a whole new future. I´m forever in his debt. Thanks, Jack! You can find out more about who Jackie Orszaczky was here:
