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 & The Individual Beings. It's a feature album of this edition of OMJ. Other excellent new releases sampled come from bassist James Singleton, guitarist Gordon Grdina's solo work on compositions by Tim Berne, a pair from Intakt Records by Dave Gisler with Jaimie Branch and David Murray and saxophonist Omre Ziegele and Where's Africa. Plenty more too.
