Various Artists: Tribute to Andrezej Przybielski Vol. 1

Read "Tribute to Andrezej Przybielski Vol. 1" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

If the Polish trumpeter and composer Andrzej Przybielski (1944-2011) was under-recognized in his native country, he has been all but unknown in the West. Though he had established his early career in traditional jazz groups, he later became a mythical figure on the Polish avant-garde jazz and free jazz scenes. Later in his career, Przybielski entered ...

Andrzej Przybielski with Oles Brothers: De Profundis

Read "De Profundis" reviewed by Jerry D'Souza

When trumpeter Andrzej Przybielski passed on in February 2011, he left behind a rich legacy in music.

Marcin & Bartlomeij Brat Oles: Duo

Read "Duo" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Questo album è davvero impressionante. I due gemelli polacchi Marcin e Bartlomeij Brat Oles inventano una miriade di suoni che nessuno poteva immaginare essere presenti nelle potenzialità strutturali di un contrabbasso e di una batteria. Lo fanno con grande sapienza tecnica e con grande fantasia compositiva ed improvvisativa. La musica è fresca ed originale, piena di ...

Marcin and Bartlomiej Brat Oles: Duo

Read "Duo" reviewed by John Sharpe

Faced with any bass and drums duo, the question is always going to be: does it pass the music minus one test? It is a brave and unforgiving furrow which not too many choose to plough. Of those that do, they often stretch the parameters by using tuned percussion or additional wind instruments like William Parker ...

Marcin & Bartlomeij Brat Oles: Duo

Read "Duo" reviewed by Raul d'Gama Rose

The unexpected should be expected at the very visual that heralds the package of Duo by the twin brothers, Marcin Oles (bass) and Bartlomeij Brat Oles (drums). It suggests complete and utter deconstruction--from destruction to reconstruction--in the strongest possible way. The prospect of rippling water, suggesting the infinite, together with the circles within circles harking to ...

Marcin & Bartlomiej Oles: Duo

Read "Duo" reviewed by Jerry D'Souza

Twin brothers Marcin and Bartlomiej Brat Oles have lent a unique perspective to several jazz recordings. Both play instruments that provide the rhythm and impetus to front line musicians; but each has his own sense of dynamics and harmony that often gives the music an unexpected dimension. The Oles brothers have developed their approach ...

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
