The Polish jazz tradition dates back to the 1920s and goes on into the present. Time and again impressive talents from our neighboring country appear, who may be committed to American jazz but also some who show their east European influences. Pianist Macin Wasilewski, bass player Sławomir Kurkiewicz and drummer Michał Miskiewicz are almost old masters. They’ve known each other since school, they’ve been playing in this formation since 1993 and the dynamic and intensity which originates from the longtime of working together was documented last year on their first live album. Tomasz Stanko is one of the trios admirers and supporters. They often supported the trumpeter; due to the recommendation Stankos ECM’s Manfred Eicher signed the trio for the label. At Enjoy Jazz they are regulars. Critic Dietrich Wappler gushed about their concert and the extraordinary sound cosmos 2018 in Ludwigshafen.
The concert is partially seated.
