An excellent virtuoso, Aladár Pege was among the top jazz music artists to emerge from Hungary. He didn’t begin playing bass until he was 15, but Pege created quickly. After learning traditional music at Bela Bartok Musical Schooling University, he freelanced in jazz groupings, frequently leading his very own band. Pege went to the Franz Liszt Academy (where he trained after graduating in 1969) and was also a studio room musician. Pege resided in Berlin from 1975-1978 before time for Hungary’s studios. Among his even more notable accomplishments have already been virtuoso duet recordings with pianist Walter Norris in 1978 and 1980 and travels with Mingus Dynasty. Being a head, Pege has going a number of dates for Western european labels (beginning in 1963), especially for Qualiton, Hugaraton, Pepita, Krem, and RST (including two unaccompanied bass pieces in 1982 and 1984), although handful of these recordings possess ever been offered within the U.S. Pege passed away on Sept 23, 2006, at age 67.
