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.
“The leap they take here is an ambitious success, (…) both challenging and fun.”
Geno Thackara, All About Jazz
„Full of great harmonies and lyrical melody lines the music is captivating
and flows with a remarkable coherence and elegance.”
Adam Baruch, Polish Jazz
„Effortless transitioning from lyricism to musical madness has become the trio’s trademark.”
Czesław Romanowski, Jazz Jantar Festival
This is a highly ingenious double album that plays with jazz in new
and interesting ways. I cannot recommend it enough!
