5.0 out of 5 stars Continuity and new directions, 26 Nov. 2009
This review is from: Dark Eyes (Audio CD)
I had the pleasure of seeing this band during their recent UK tour. I'm a huge fan of Tomasz Stanko's previous quartet line-up who capture the essence of improvisation on a theme that is one of the bedrocks of jazz for me. Stanko has a unique style and tone and continues to mix his own tunes with those of Krystof Komeda. But this band really does have a different sound - more "edgy" just like it said in the concert blurb. Jakob Bro's guitar sometimes sits just in the background and adds a perfect complement to the trumpet but he can also play some real power solos. Anders Christensen's electric bass is really solid and he keeps a powerful groove going - whilst standing rooted to the spot on stage. Alexi Tuomarila's piano can mix wandering lyrical passages with some driving up-tempo and Olavi Louhivouri's drumming holds the whole lot together.

If you already enjoy Stanko's music, you'll want to listen to this. It feels like a natural development of what you'll already like but with enough new sounds to keep it interesting. If you don't already know anything by this master of European jazz then you should check this out anyway, because it continues to sum up what this music is all about.
