Mike Parker's Meta
20/15 zł

Slawek Pezda- ts, Mateusz Palka- p, Mike
Parker- b, Damian Niewinski- dr

Mike Parker's 'Meta' is a new quartet project by the native New York bassist and composer. While his previous projects have never included piano or guitar, 'Meta' features pianist Mateusz Palka to add new colors to Parker's compositions. Parker's music has been described by critics as 'an ingenious synthesis of all musical genres' and his compositions draw on such wide-ranging influences as Charles Mingus, Radiohead, Maurice Ravel, Led Zeppelin, John Coltrane, and David Bowie.

Tenor saxophonist Slawek Pezda- whom Parker has played hundreds of concerts across Europe with as a memeber of his 'Trio Theory' and 'Unified Theory' projects- and drummer Damian Niewinski- whom Parker has also played hundreds of concerts with in the funk/rock 'Nat Osborn Band'- provide their energetic musical personalities to the group. While the quartet project began in 2017 and is relatively new, Parker's long history of collaborations with each member leads to a uniquely cohesive unit.

Muzycy wchodzący w skład Ot Quintet poznali się na wydziale Jazzu Akademii Muzycznej w Katowicach. Każdy z nich udziela się również w licznych formacjach.

20/15 zł

Richard Kass - perkusja, Ant Law - gitara, Rich Harrold - fortepian

Trio HLK is the union of three distinct, forward thinking musical personalities. Drum virtuoso Richard Kass is a powerful, polyrhythmic engine whose multi-limbic facility affords him a wealth of textures and multiple layers of expression; he executes rhythms at more than one tempo simultaneously, which often draws comparison to electronica and computer generated music. Guitarist Ant Law plays a bespoke extended range electric guitar with 8 strings and a variety of effects; a wealth of influences from jazz, heavy metal and elsewhere shine through in his playing. Classical pianist and composer Rich Harrold was immersed in contemporary classical music from a young age; his approach encompasses recomposition and decomposition as much as pure composition itself. His harmonic realm isthe border between tonality and atonality, and there is a strong sense of rhythmic and melodic development throughout his writing. A belief in the high art of improvisation and intrigue with the infinite art and science of rhythm is what brings H, L and K together.

Luca Sisera
20/15 zł

Luca Sisera - bass, composition, Michael Jaeger - tenor saxophone, Maurus Twerenbold - trombone, Yves Theiler - piano, Michi Stulz - drums

With their new album Starlex Complex, Luca Sisera Roofer masterfully continue their journey over the hurdles and chasms of contemporary jazz. Starlex Complex follows their critically acclaimed debut album Prospect (Leo Records, 2015) and the live album Moscow Files (Leo Records, 2017). This new work, released on Nils Wogram's label nWog Records, contains nine compositions, including a three-part minisuite. These open up a musical spectrum in which the ostensibly opposite poles of structure and freedom ethereally imbue each other and blend as a distinctive band sound. Creative Swiss bassist Luca Sisera is a musician considered one of the outstanding instrumentalists on the European scene. As an accomplished sideman, he playfully comes to grips with even the most demanding of jobs across the entire jazz genre, as well as interdisciplinary projects. In 2013, he founded Roofer as his own quintet. Michael Jaeger (saxophone), Maurus Twerenbold (trombone), Yves Theiler (piano) and Michi Stulz (drums) are major musicians from the relatively young Swiss jazz scene. They handle the sometimes highly complex compositions very freely and thus realise their band leader's vision in a congenial way. It is no accident that Sisera named his band Roofer. So-called "roofers" are climbers who clamber up high structures without safety equipment, and ably cross the hurdles and chasms of urban roof and facade landscapes. Sisera is not one of these extreme athletes, but an extremely agile musician. The qualities with which roofers put their passion into practice characterise not only his compositions, but also his fellow musicians: love of adventure, willingness to take risks, sophisticated techniques, know-how and experience. Sisera's music is refined. It has a challenging edginess without rigidifying in lifeless formulae. Positive restlessness and well-placed contrasts keep it energised.

Hannę Banaszak, Andrzeja Zauchę, a skomponowane przez takich artystów jak:
Włodzimierz Nahorny, Krzysztof Komeda, Wojciech Karolak, Jan “Ptaszyn”

First Circle
20/15 zł

„First Circle“ , consisting of Victor Fox, Roger Kintopf and Felix Ambach, plays together as a collective band since 2014. Already at a young age, the musicians got to know each other and quickly discovered the accordance of their musical influences and their idea of making music. Inspiring each other, they have always been looking for something new - Something unknown - . It was evident, that the three musicians neither want to play in an already familiar formation, nor conventional modern jazz. In this instrumentation without a harmony instrument, they foreground improvisation and interaction of their music and thus try to follow previously unexplored paths. In their program, consisting of their own compositions, as well as free improvisations, they deepen the possibilities of interaction as much as possible while their characteristic band sound comes to fruition. In 2015 they’ve been awarded for their outstanding compositions by the „Union of German Jazz-Musicians“. After their debut album „conversations with the unknown“, First Circle presents their new album „GLÄÜÖ“, which was recorded at the Kammermusiksaal Deutschlandfunk Cologne, and which has been released at UNIT Record in June 2017.
