Ahoy People!

Today all the way from Poland we have got an autonomous force trio, the “Marcin Wasilewski Trio”. 🙂
This trio began in 1990, when Marcin and Kurkiewics were 15 years old students at the Koszalin High School of Music. But was not untill 1993 that Miskiewicz (Drummer) joined them, and the group’s line-up has been stable ever since.

And in all those 18 years, there have been just 3 albums, their first release, for ECM (label), entitled “Trio” was recorded in 2004 and released the following year, immediately winning the Quarterly Prize of the German Record Critic That means that their first album was released 12 years after the group began!.

That´s an example of how the good things have to wait some time in order to be done wisely.
Then in 2008 they released an album called “January” and last and my favorite Marcin album has to be “Faithful” which was released on March of 2011.

Here is a video of one of my favorite compositions, is called “Song For Świrek” from the album “Faithful”
Close your eyes, and enjoy. 🙂

Musically speaking the song is simple and has very good dynamics, this is a perfect example to prove that you don´t need those hard chords, the super fast solos, and the loud music to get a feeling of greatness.

The members of the trio are:
Marcin Wasilewski (Piano)
-Slawomir Kurkiewicz (Bass)
-Michal Miskiewicz (Drums)

Each one of these guys has played with some other great musicians such as:
-Michal Urbaniak, Szukalski Tomasz, Wojtasik Piotr, John & Henry Wroblewski Ptaszyn Miśkiewicz.

As Wasilewski reported to All About Jazz, “The music is always evolving; I don’t know when it will stop, but I hope never.” Similarly, Stańko testified that “in the entire history of Polish jazz we’ve never had a band like this one”.

So there it is, as Wasilewski said, everything has to evolve, has to transcend, finding those everyday motives that lead you on to greatness, that lead you to the meaning of life, we all hope that music never stops evolving, because i find music one of few things that everyone in this world likes. Music can make you feel different emotions while listening to it.

If you like the video, you should really go and check some other great things this group has done.
I´ll leave their myspace RIGHT HERE. so that you are able to hear some of their music, or reading some of their latest news, i´ll leave here a link of a translation page from Polish to English for THOSE FEW PERSONS THAT DON´T UNDERSTAND POLISH…(i think everyone will need this) 😀 Translation Page Click Here

“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination
and life to everything.”
