January - Marcin Wasilewski Trio
A mature statement by a still-young Polish band that already has 15 years of playing experience behind it.
All group members shine here, with Marcin Wasilewski again impressive as one of the most outstanding jazz pianists of his generation. The group has already a strong and still-growing following both in their own right and as members of the Tomasz Stańko Quartet (Additionally, profiles of pianist Wasilewski and bassist Kurkiewicz have been raised by their membership of the Manu Katché Group). Remarkably broad program of material. Repertoire includes music by Prince, Carla Bley, Gary Peacock, Tomasz Stańko, Ennio Morricone as well as original tunes by Wasilewski. This impressive album, coupled with the tour dates, will catapult this group to the spotlight of the jazz community.
