Dazzling and beautifully-recorded third ECM album by Poland's Wasilewski Trio, one of the most resourceful piano trios of the present day and one which radiates an unmistakable joy in music-making. Their wide-ranging repertoire here includes five new tunes from the pen of Marcin Wasilewski and contemporary jazz classics by Paul Bley, Hermeto Pascoal, and Ornette Coleman. Plus, Hanns Eisler's "An den kleinen Radioapparat" and the jazz standard "Ballad of the Sad Young Men".
Produced by Manfred Eicher at Lugano's Auditorium SRI, it's a very natural and warm-sounding album that perfectly captures the trio's blend of energy and lyricism. There is space here for both the outgoing and the reflective, for profound composition and in-the-moment creativity.
In Poland, the Marcin Wasilewski Trio are stars of the national jazz scene. The group was formed by Marcin Wasilewski and Slawomir Kurkiewicz back in 1990, when they were just 15 years old. Drummer Michal Miskiewicz joined in 1993, and the line-up has been stable ever since. Polish jazz legend Tomasz Stanko supported and encouraged the group, integrating them in his quartet for the highly successful 'Soul of Things', 'Suspended Night' and 'Lontano', and declaring "In the entire history of Polish jazz, there's never been a trio like this one and they're getting better all the time." Out on their own, the group has made a big impact, and each of the previous ECM discs - 'Trio' and January - has also netted big praise from the international critics. Germany's Jazzthing called the trio "Jahrhundert-Talente" (talents of the century).
Personnel: Marcin Wasilewski (piano), Slawomir Kurkiewicz (double-bass), Michal Miskiewicz (drums)
(4 stars) Their most rounded performance to date...should figure high among Critic's Picks of 2011. -- Jazzwise, (Stuart Nicholson), June 2011
Another striking and unmissable session from this ultra-lyrical Polish trio. -- Jazz Journal, (Michael Tucker), August 2011

Faithful opens with the romantic piece "An den kleinen Radioapparat" by Hanns Eisler (also reinterpreted years ago under the name "The Secret Marriage" by pop singer Sting in his 1987 Nothing Like the Sun) and the first impression of poetic and heartening music is confirmed one track after the other in 71 minutes of music. Moods are somewhat less ethereal and meditative that the trio previous releases, more lyrical and fluid, more immediate and possibly more entertaining. You might like this change or prefer their previous recordings, that's just a matter of tastes. For sure Faithful is a really beautiful trio recoding that would please many estimators of contemporary European jazz. High quality package and sound as usual from ECM.
All in all, it was a gamble. I won.
The only problem is, I can see myself parting with more of my hard earned cash in the future tracking down other albums by him - which takes nothing away from the equally sympathetic rhythm section who gently reinforce what the piano is doing.
Up there with the best of the best, I thoroughly recommend this to lovers of the modern piano trio genre.
