Geno Thackara on “Duality” in All About Jazz

Geno Thackara on “Duality” in All About Jazz

“… for all its trickery, Duality remains as appealing as it is brainy. Those who don’t want to pick apart the compositional quirks can simply enjoy the sound of three imaginative players refusing to stay static. The leap they take here is an ambitious success, playfully reflecting a range of intriguing possibilities, then collapsing them into something both challenging and fun.” Thank you Geno Thackara for this great review of our album “Duality”!

Adam Baruch’s review of Duality on Polish Jazz

Adam Baruch’s review of Duality on Polish Jazz

Thank you Adam Baruch for such a beautiful review of our album “Duality: Particles & Waves”! You can read it here: Polish Jazz   Or here: By Adam Baruch This is the second album by Quantum Trio, which consists of Polish saxophonist Michał Jan Ciesielski, keyboardist Kamil Zawiślak and Chilean drummer Luis Mora Matus. The double CD album presents fifteen original compositions, nine composed or co-composed by Ciesielski, three by Zawiślak and nine by Matus. Musically the album continues from where the debut left off, presenting a series of excellent melodic compositions, executed with vigor and obvious technical proficiency. The lack of bass does not hinder the trio’s Swing and ability to use odd meters and switch tempi unpredictably, which of course is great fun to listen to. The music is more extrovert and expressive than on the debut, but the basic concept is still there, this time significantly developed and expanded. The use of overdubs on some tracks creates a much denser and complex overall aural effect, also expanding upon the basic concept of the trio. Although the music is beautifully executed, it is the superb compositions that turn this album into a first class musical experience. Full of great harmonies and lyrical melody lines the music is captivating and flows with a remarkable coherence and elegance. The World Music motifs are much more significant on this album, and they again add a completely new dimension to the music, enabling the exploration of new sonic vistas. Overall this is a great album, which can be enjoyed by a wide range of listeners, including even those who do not listen... read more

Review at the polish-jazz.blogspot.com

One of the most popular jazz oriented polish websites polish-jazz.blogspot.com has recently published the review of “Gravity” by Adam Baruch with a comment by Tomasz Łuczak (co-funder): ” Very good debut of the formation Quantum Trio consisting of: Michał Jan Ciesielski (saxophones), Kamil Zawiślak (grand piano) and Luis Mora Matus (drums). We love the well balanced combination of clarity, elegant sobriety and creativity definitely widening the definition of mainstream. Not too sweet, no pretentious coquetry, no excessive fireworks. One of the best debuts of the year. “ The full review can be found here: http://polish-jazz.blogspot.com/2015/11/quantum-trio-gravity-2015.html?spref=fb Thank you very... read more

Review by Adam Baruch

” …very enjoyable, delicate and aesthetically pleasing album, and a most impressive debut outing. Hopefully this is a sign of things to come. Definitely recommended! ”   Adam Baruch wrote a very pleasing review of our debut album. You can find it on http://www.adambaruch.com/reviews_item.asp?item=104897 or here:   “This is the debut album by the Quantum Trio, which consists of Polish saxophonist Michal Ciesielski and pianist Kamil Zawislak and Chilean drummer Luis Mora Matus. It presents ten original compositions, three of which were composed by Ciesielski, one by Zawislak, four by Matus and the remaining two by all three members of the trio. The music is mostly serene, intimate and reflexive, with strong and beautiful melodic themes and a distinct Classical influence. The chamber ambience is also emphasized by the lack of bass, which usually supplies the Jazz pulsation, not present here. Nevertheless this is undoubtedly a Jazz album, although the music is very elegant and almost lofty, somewhat similar to the Scandinavian touch. Contrary to what the trio publishes in their promo materials about their music, all of the music herein is perfectly composed and arranged and shows no traces of spontaneous composition / improvisation. The personal contributions by all three trio members are without reproach; Ciesielski plays delicate, long phrases with beautiful intonation and great sensitivity, Zawislak masterly accompanies the saxophone parts and plays elegant solo parts and finally Matus ornaments the music with his rich palette of percussive sounds, showing great imagination and a lot of skill. Overall this is a very enjoyable, delicate and aesthetically pleasing album, and a most impressive debut outing. Hopefully this is a sign of... read more
