Marcin Wasilewski Trio
Mon, Nov 10, 2008 8 PM

"The most important piano trio debut of the new millennium to date...subtle, suspenseful, rich and mature."—Stereophile

Jazz fans who were knocked out by our concert with Polish jazz trumpeter Tomasz Stanko in 2006 also took note of the dynamic role played in that band by Marcin Wasilewski, its standout pianist. He returns this time as the leader of a trio that features the expertly responsive rhythm section of bassist Slawomir Kurkiewicz and drummer Michal Miskiewicz, the same pair that backed Stanko. Live, as on January, the trio’s most recent ECM release, you’ll hear the pianist’s own finely wrought originals as well as brilliant interpretations of composers ranging from Stanko to Carla Bley to Prince. Wasilewski displays his cinematic approach, deep emotional resonance, and strongly lyrical playing throughout.
