Bálint Hrecska

Bálint Hrecska was born in Budapest, on 12 August, 1981. Music had interested him from a very early age and so, his parents enrolled him to a musical primary and middle school where he met up with his first and really important impacts.

After middle school came a few years of side tracking from these studies, but his interest towards music stayed constant, more over grew a great deal. In 2000, just before his high school graduation, he got his very first bass guitar.

At this time he was mostly into the progressive rock groups of the 70’s, but he soon came to meet Jaco Pastorius’ works

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
