New Marcin Olak Trio vids on YouTube

I’ve just uploaded on YouTube two songs from my trio’s concert in Warsaw’s Quality Studio. We played there last December. And, what’s more interesting, we played the whole new thing, which we prepare for the new album. I play the classical guitar there, with Maciej Szczyciński on bass and Krzysztof Szmańda on drums. The recording button on the camcorder was mastered by Krzysztof Machowina. I invite you to watch, and by the way you can subscribe my YT channel. Enjoy responsibly!

Gadt/Osborne/Zakrocki/Olak

Just a moment ago we’ve left the studio. Anna Gadt – voice, Annemie Osborne – cello, Patryk Zakrocki – viola. And me on guitars. We’ve played some improvised chamber music. Just wanted to capture the moment of our meeting, I hope we’ll be able to share it with you soon!

Spontaneous Chamber Music on Jazzarium.pl

“Spontaneous Chamber Music vol. 2”, the album, which I recorded with Patryk Zakrocki and Agustí Fernández, is a week’s album on Jazzarium.pl. By the way they’ve reviewed our CD – in Polish, but you can always try Google translate, it’s so beautifully wrong.

And this is how Piotr Wojdat writes about our album: From the very beginning until the end of the second volume of “Spontaneous Chamber Music” we can hear that Zakrocki, Olak and Fernandez come into artistic interactions that result in the truly beautiful music.

The entire review can be found here.

Spontaneous reviewed!

Zakrocki and Olak seem to have a symbiotic relationship, which is reflected in their telepathic conversations as a duo. Their non-conformist approach to improvisation is fresh and inspiring. Overall this is a very interesting and rich album, full of exciting moments and relaxed interludes, keeping the listener on his toes for the entire duration. This music is unique and shows a completely different avant-garde concept, which allows for calmness and contemplation to replace anger and aggression, which often turns avant-garde music into and unlistenable cacophony.

That’s what Adam Baruch has written about our new album, Spontaneous Chamber Music vol. 2. We are even more happy, because it’s the first review!

You can read this text – and many more – on Polish-Jazz.blogspot.com. Yes, it’s in English. Enjoy!
