Read "Live In Trójka" reviewed by Mark Sullivan


Poland's HoTS (the name is an initialism of Harmony of The Spheres) returns with a live album. As on previous release Numbers (Multikulti Project, 2017), guitarist Mikołaj Poncyljusz is still giving his compositions mostly numerical titles, but the usual quintet is augmented by guest pianist Aga Derlak. “#30" opens the set with the quintet in bebop ...

Tomasz Dabrowski: Ninjazz

Read "Ninjazz" reviewed by Don Phipps


Dark and foreboding, with a slight touch of heat, Polish trumpeter Tomasz Dąbrowski's album Ninjazz offers up a selection of work that reminds one of his mentor, the late great Tomasz Stanko, with a bit of Enrico Rava, Kenny Wheeler, and Mark Isham thrown in for good measure.

Sigmar Matthíasson: Arora

Read "Arora" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

Tomasz Dabrowski Ad Hoc: Ninjazz

Read "Ninjazz" reviewed by Troy Dostert


Although he has built an impressive resume working with well-known avant-gardists like Evan Parker, Tyshawn Sorey, Kris Davis and Andrew Drury (with the latter two appearing on his 2014 release, Vermillion Tree ), Polish trumpeter Tomasz Dabrowski went in a different direction for his current project, Ninjazz.

Tomasz Dabrowski Ad Hoc: Ninjazz

Read "Ninjazz" reviewed by Glenn Astarita


Award-winning Polish trumpeter/educator Tomasz Dąbrowski (Gilad Hekselman, Kurt Rosenwinkel, TOM TRIO) and current resident of Copenhagen, has an impressive résumé amid a penchant for exploring dissimilar jazz-based methods. Here, the artist and his Japanese cohorts build an opaque conduit between modern jazz and experimental tendencies via a democratic engagement, where each musician's voice is heard.
