Obara, Lindberg, Sorgen - Three (2010)

Maciej Obara is one of the most interesting young musicians playing free jazz in Poland. It is his third album after no less interesting second one titled "Four" issued earlier in 2010. He recorded that one with Ralph Alessi, Mark Helias and Nasheet Waits, top avantgarde musicians from New York. But on this record Obara is accompanied by no less prominent sidemen: John Lindberg on double bass and Harvey Sorgen on drums. These are great musicians and they provide for Obara's alto saxophone truly stellar rhythmic support. And he uses this support in best possible way: his alto meanders between aggressiveness and lyricism. This hard-to-attain equilibrium slowly becomes his stamp of quality, something that makes his voice so individual and unique.  For more information please consult Stef review at his fantastic Free Jazz web site.
