Marcin Wasilewski Trio: Faithful

Read "Faithful" reviewed by Greg Simmons

The Marcin Wasilewski Trio's Faithful makes its entry as one of the better albums of 2011 to date, with a selection of original titles that are melodic, highly sophisticated and thoroughly enjoyable.

Marcin Wasilewski Trio: Faithful

Read "Faithful" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

In a parallel universe, it would be interesting to hear the music of a Marcin Wasilewski Trio that hadn't come under the influence of its mentor, Polish trumpeter Tomasz Stanko. Without him, they surely would have become an accomplished and synergistic group. But in this universe, Wasilewski's trio began recording with their countryman on Soul of ...

Marcin Wasilewski Trio: January

Read "January" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Listening to “The First Touch," the opening cut on the Marcin Wasilewski Trio's disc, January, is like slipping into a shimmering dream. The piano trio's sound is gentle, drifting and contemplative. Space is a factor, as is intricate three-way interplay. The music fits into the much written of “ECM Records aesthetic"--a sound not too far from ...
