Fourth Dimension (2009)

As on other albums of combos led by guitarist Maciej Grzywacz (check "Things Never Done" or "Black Wine") we may find here creatively treated mainstream jazz. Elegant, sophisticated, intellectual are adjectives that come to my mind when I think about his music. All are positive according to me. But one more should be added to stress its collective character. Always being the landmark of best jazz efforts this recording stands out for perfect interplay between muscians. Musicians who are by the way among most prominent on Polish scene. Bassist Michał Barański and drummer Łukasz Żyta create one of three best rhythm sections in Poland and can be heard on innumerable amount of discs. Maciej Obara is still rather young but his career has gained momentem since he collaborated with Tomasz Stańko on his New Balladyna Project. All in all, this is at least satisfactory listening experience.

Track listing:
1. Element Of Truth[08:17]
2. More Than Six[10:18]
3. At The Beginning[08:25]
4. Fourth Dimension[11:34]
5. Formula[08:01]
6. Part Of The Plan[09:37]
