Rieger Rhodes Quartet Album Design
About the Rhodes
The analog electronic piano of the 70s with pick-ups similar to the guitar’s has a soft, fascinating sound resembling that of the celesta. As Hungarian stages do not necessarily have an acustic or upright piano I came to the idea of taking this portable instrument with us to avoid having to rely on today’s digital piano sound. The Fender Rhodes is a legendary, full-value instrument regularly used in modern jazz. In this take it is amplified by a Böhm-tube amp from the 50s.
Attila Rieger guitarist, band leader
“This is a beautiful record of great compositions and playing by Attila Rieger and his group. Attila has an incredible sound and touch on the guitar and shows a maturity and musicality that is truly his own. The group shows great sensitivity and plays with empathy and generosity, bringing out the mood of each composition. Great music!!”
