MARCIN WASILEWSKI TRIO - U.S. TOUR celebrating the release of their ECM album January
16 maja, 2008
The Marcin Wasilewski Trio will celebrate the release of their latest ECM album January.
The album, which received enthusiastic reviews, including The New York Times Critic’s Choice: New CD’s, is a strong musical statement from a still-young band with a long history already behind it, and an album with an exceptionally wide-ranging program –
all of it played with assurance, purpose and focus. The album and the Trio’s concerts reconfirm that the trio of Marcin Wasilewski, Slawomir Kurkiewicz and Michal Miskiewicz is one of the most outstanding contemporary jazz groups. Their friend and mentor, trumpeter Tomasz Stanko, has said, “In the entire history of Polish jazz we’ve never had a band like this one. They just keep getting better and better.”

Wasilewski is an excellent pianist influenced by Keith Jarrett – The New York Times
The tour is presented with generous support from the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage of Poland.
Part of the group’s secret is the patient ease with which they intertwine impressionistic music and powerful pulses. – The Guardian
