Loop Doctors featuring Chris Hunter, Krisztian Eder SP 

 


Founding Loop Doctors

The basic idea for Loop Doctors came in 2005, when the two founding members of the band, Romhányi Áron (keyboards) and SzendĹ‘fi Péter (drums) where talking with Gary Willis about modern musical styles, during the recording of Péter's solo album. Later the band was formed, and with special guest Gary Willis on bass, and trumpet player Kornél Fekete-Kovács, they recorded the first album "High Voltage" in 2006.

The music

Loop Doctors’ music is a medley of different styles, including jazz, drum 'n' bass, jungle, hip-hop and rap. An overall category could be nu-jazz, but Loop Doctors can also be seen in clubs, where people actually dance to the music. Loop Doctors usually performs as a duo, Peter using an 'Octa-pad', from which the grooves, bass lines and additional synths are played, and also plays acoustic drums. Aron plays keys, and also does vocals/rap. Since 2006 they regularly do a tour as a duo, and also with special guests (Gary Willis - bass, Brandon Fields – sax, Fekete-Kovács Kornél – trumpet, Szentpáli Roland – tuba, Dennert Árpád – sax, Llibert Fortuny - sax)

Albums

The first album "High Voltage" was released in 2006, and recieved the "Fonogram - best jazz album of the year 2008" award in Hungary. Special guest is Gary Willis (Tribal Tech) on bass.

The second album, “White Orange Black” came in 2008, featuring classical tuba virtuoso and composer Roland Szentpali. The use of tuba as a bass instrument in this style is a completely new concept, breaking the barriers of modern arranging.

The third album of the band will be released in 2014, entitled “Entering a Room”. The material was recorded in New York, at Peter Karl Studios, featuring special guest Chris Hunter on sax. Gray Willis, Brandon Fields and Roland Szentpali are also featured on this album.
