Maciej Lewenstein, an indefatigable researcher of the Polish jazz and avant-garde scene (and by the way an outstanding physicist – but that’s a completely different story) reviewed our album, recorded with Patryk Zakrocki and Agusti Fernandez. Spontaneous Chamber Music vol. 2 gained recognition in the eyes – or rather in the ears – of the reviewer. The entire text – yes, it’s in English – is posted below, and more reviews by Maciej can be found on his Facebook. It’s worth taking a look there, because it is a great guide to the contemporary jazz and avant garde music scene!
“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.
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!
