Read "Tomasz Dabrowski, James Singleton & Dave Gisler" reviewed by Maurice Hogue


Like most Polish trumpet players influenced by the late Tomasz Stanko, Tomasz Dabrowski fell heavily under Stanko's spell, but he also was blessed to study with the master and to have him as a mentor. It was probably a huge thrill to be able to play one of Stanko's horns while recording his latest, Tomasz Dabrowski ...
