The dialects of Hungarian folk music sound crystal clear through the universal language of jazz

Mihály Dresch's oeuvre is rich and consistent enough for his admirers to start repeating themselves. But there is no avoiding it: over and again, the Dresch albums are considered to be the cornerstones of 'Hungarian jazz', in which the dialects of Hungarian folk music sound crystal clear through the universal language of jazz.
Beyond the obvious self-identity of Dresch's works, and in view of it, the things that distinguish Straight music are precisely those steps which show a more conspicuous intimacy or sensitivity than before. These steps not only make his pieces more dramatic, but it is as if they suggested that from now on we are dealing with something qualitatively different. This is a quality in which folk music and jazz merge not because Dresch managed to keep control of the forms and proportions, but because they have 'no other option'. Just as Dresch can do nothing else. His sound can no longer be unravelled from the sound of 'Hungarian jazz'. They belong together - in their gut feeling, their blood, their fate and their mother tongue. Whether we speak of folk music arrangements or original compositions inspired by folk music is, in essence, neither here nor there. The sound is one and the same, and that is the truth.
