Message From Ohayo (2007)




Although debut this is excellent piece of music! Based on solid tradition of jazz as much in its bop (so dear to Obara) as cool form (to Garbowski and Gradziuk) these musicians set an example for other s in Poland how to successfully mix different influences into something new and individual. Of course it is now easy to make such a statement when these (then) young lads already made significant careers (at least in Poland). But fact remains is that they have played very well just from the beginning! What appeals most to me that however is symbolized by first track on this album namely 'Trinkle Tinkle' by Thelonius Monk. Bravery, open-mindedness and dedication to search what is surprising in jazz understood in its most general sense. Hopefully they will stay on this track in years to come...
