„Das preisgekrönte polnisch-norwegische Quartett mit umjubeltem ECM-Debüt ist in sechs Jahren über viel Spielpraxis zu einer bestechenden Verdichtung von glühend lyrischer Klangqualität im Wechselspiel mit raueren Temperamentlagen gelangt – in einem Klangbild voll sublimer innerer Spannung, offenen Ausbruchstellen und schwelender wie auch flammender Ränder. Berlin-Debüt beim Jazzfest und ein Hörgenuss, wie geschaffen für mitternächtliche Stunden.“ (© Jazzfest Berlin)

An den Konzerttagen steht Maciej Obara für face-to-face Interviews zur Verfügung. Ansonsten sind telefonische Interviews möglich.

Maciej Obara makes a striking ECM debut with Unloved, an album whose expressive range embraces tender lyricism and impassioned, fiery, powerful playing. With the exception of the title track – written by Krzysztof Komeda (spiritus rector of modern jazz in Poland) for Janusz Nasfeter’s film of the same name – themes are by the highly inventive alto saxophonist.

Obara emphasizes however that his themes “serve as outlines, from which our sound is set free. My friends are amazing improvisers. I love their ability to move around freely in open spaces, and the way they shape and give colour to what I have in mind…It’s more like composing in real time.”

The players have been developing their concept for several years: Maciej Obara and pianist Dominik Wania, another major talent, first met in a Tomasz Stanko ensemble a decade ago. Since 2012 they have been joined by two highly creative Norwegian musicians, bassist Ole Morten Vågan and drummer Gard Nilssen. (Vågan’s ECM credits include work with Thomas Strønen’s Time Is A Blind Guide, while Nilssen can be heard on Mathias Eick’s Skala.) Unloved was recorded at Oslo’s Rainbow Studio in January 2017 and produced by Manfred Eicher. (© ECM)
