Trylobit (Multikulti, 2007)

[...] Artur Rubinstein argued with Igor Stravinsky about the nature of the piano. "Piano is utility instrument which sounds exactly like drums" - said Stravinsky to the horror of Rubinstain. Young pianist Piotr Zabrodzki would probably take Stravinsky side in this argument. He had showed it already on recording documenting his project with Japanese drummer of legendary Ruins duo Tatsuya Yoshida. In this duo called Trylobit his place is taken by Zabrodzki friend from Bydgoszcz Artur Lawrenz whose beat is dense, watchful and inspiring. Parallels with Ruins may be found in two jazz-noise torpedoes which open and close this disc. The other four songs are less swift with improvisations meandering mostly along McCoy Tyner paths with typical for him powerful attacks on left side of the keyboard. Trilobites are extinct arthropods covered with calcareous shell. Zabrodzki and Lawrenz music aims to break fossilized heads and tastes. [...]
