Polish Music at Polish Hall - MARCIN WASILEWSKI TRIO

One of the best trios to appear on the European jazz scene in the past decade.
The Guardian

Wasilewski's sense of musical space and his aural imagery are so fresh they are initially mysterious, then get more so.
Jazz Times

Its a distinctive, yet accessible group that strikes a fine balance of tradition and contemporary influences, demonstrating the global language and continuity of jazz music with nuance.
