Violinist Csaba Deseo (1939) studied at Béla Bartók Conservatory in Budapest, got his diploma in 1961. His jazz-career started in the middle of the 1960s, beside concerts in Hungary he soon appeared at international jazz festivals in Prague, Warsaw, Berlin, Zagreb, Bled and Ljubljana. His first LP entitled “Four String Tschaba” was recorded 1974 in West Germany by MPS-BASF with German, Swedish and English musicians.

Deseo played in different formations with top Hungarian performers - Gabor Szabo, Aladar Pege, Tony Lakatos, Laszlo Gardony, Tommy Vig etc. - and also played with Jean-Luc Ponty, John Lewis, Martin Drew, Dusko Goykovic, Bosko Petrovic and many others. Between 1967-1999 he was also member of the Hungarian State Philharmonic Orchestra, with them he toured the world from Japan to the US and of course whole Europe. In the last years he is playing with the best musicians of the young generation from the Budapest jazz-scene. On the cover of his CD “Tale” he wrote: “We have recorded songs near to our hearts in the hope that they will reach all those, who in our world gone mad, still love melody, harmony and SWING.”

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
