Marcin Wasilewski Trio

 

continued

jazz scene in Central Europe. Among the players who matured in that period, trumpeter Tomasz Stanko stands out as one who has achieved international status and recognition. In 1994 the great man of Polish jazz heard a trio of teenagers from the provincial city of Koszalin, and he was so taken by their talents that he immediately began to use them for film and theater music.

Pianist Marcin Wasilewski, bassist Slawomir Kurkiewicz, and drummer Michal Miskiewicz had created the collaborative New Acoustic Trio only a year earlier. By Polish and even European standards, their early success was impressive, as they earned awards at festivals in their native country and beyond and accumulated critical praise for their performances and recordings. At the turn of the century Stanko began to use them for his own international tours, and for the last eight years they have been his standard collaborators.
