Leslie Mandoki & FriendsMan Doki Soulmates
16 February 2013, 7.30 pm - 10.30 pm
Bartók Béla National Concert Hall
Legendary icons of rock music take to the stage this evening at the Palace of Arts, all of them friends of Hungarian-born producer László Mándoki. Known in his land of birth primarily for scoring an international 1979 disco hit with the German pop group Dschinghis Khan, Mándoki is now one of the most influential music producers in Europe. Among those who have cut records in his studio are Ian Anderson (Jethro Tull), Steve Lukather (Toto), Bobby Kimball (Toto), Jack Bruce (Cream), David Clayton-Thomas (Blood, Sweat & Tears) and Chaka Khan, as well as Plácido Domingo, Phil Collins, Lionel Richie, Jennifer Rush and Nik Kershaw. Beginning as a jazz musician and continuing to work in that genre to this day, Mándoki not only operates on the production side but also takes an active role as a musician: with the exception of records by Phil Collins, he plays drums on almost all of the albums that emerge from his studio on the shores of Lake Starnberg near Munich.
20 years ago Mándoki put together a band of friends and international stars for a series celebrating 50 years of rock hosted by Thomas Gottschalk, the prince of German talk shows. The supergroup Man Doki Soulmates brings together some of the leading names in rock music, from Ian Anderson to Jack Bruce, and from Bobby Kimball to Greg Lake (Emerson, Lake & Palmer), and also counts among its members jazz trumpeter Randy Brecker, saxophonist Bill Evans and, last but not least, legendary guitarist Al Di Meola. The repertoire of the all-star Soulmates jam band features many of the most durable hits in the rock genre.
