“TOMASZ STANKO NEW YORK QUARTET” IN CONCERT

March 1, 2016

“One of the world’s most orginal and inventive jazz trumpeters” – The New Yorker. Polish trumpet legent Tostankomasz Stanko always keeps company with thw most formidable young players on the scene.
Now splitting his time between New York City and Warsaw, Stańko may well have put together the best group of his career with his New York Quartet and its debut recording, Wislawa. Over the past decade, bassist Thomas Morgan and drummer Gerald Cleaver have shaped growing presences on the label, Morgan for his collaborations with guitarist John Abercrombie and pianist Masabumi Kikuchi, and Cleaver for his work with reed multi-instrumentalist Roscoe Mitchell, and bassist Miroslav Vitous and Michael Formanek.

With Wislawa, Stańko has it all, with a group whose possibilities already seem limitless. With an unmistakable allegiance to the tradition, even as it twists, turns and occasionally collapses its supporting structures and introduces incidental contextual ideas from beyond, Stańko’s New York Quartet feels like the group he’s been searching for all along.
