Jazz On Wednesdays bring a world of world jazz, this week featuring the Marcin Wasilewski Trio and their recent album En Attendant. Jazz Sketches at noon with Robert Vale and Planet Jazz at 7pm with Xavier Bichon.
Pianist Marcin Wasilewski, bassist Slawomir Kurkiewicz and drummer Michal Miskiewicz have been playing together for almost thirty years. The BBC Music Magazine noted: “There’s a galaxy of piano trios in today’s jazz universe, but few shine as bright as Marcin Wasilewski’s”
This Polish trio is one of the most creative stars of the European jazz scene, recognised for their unique talent in blending tradition with contemporary sound. In their album, En Attendant, they traverse material by such disparate composers as J.S. Bach, Carla Bley and The Doors.
