Quantum Trio is an idea. A hypothesis. A notion. A non-conventional group creating high energy subatomic music particles, to which ordinary laws of physics do not apply. It is Quantum mechanics. It is probability and uncertainty. Emotions that are so hard to capture, energy and matter in the space-time.

Quantum Trio is an unconventional jazz trio established in Rotterdam in 2012 by Michal Jan Ciesielski, Kamil Zawislak and Luis Mora Matus. Their music ranges from dynamic compositions through lyrical ballads to rock energy anthems. The first album „Gravity” introduced the band to the European audience and was awarded „Debut Album of 2015” by Polish Jazz. Recently released double album „Duality: Particles & Waves” shows the trio’s fiercer side, introducing electronics, modern production, while still maintaining a specific unified sound.

Quantum Trio is a classy group whose offering may be liked equally by the genre connoisseurs and those, who came in touch with jazz for the first time. (…)
Quantum Trio is far from being a one-dimensional band.
