THIS PERFORMANCE TOOK PLACE IN 2009 Tomasz Stanko, trumpet Alexi Tuomarila, piano Jakob Bro, guitar Anders Christensen, bass Olavi Louhivouri, drums Polish trumpeter Tomasz Stanko has been at the forefront of the Europen jazz scene for over 40 years. His obliquely beautiful tone encapsulates a spacious approach to everything from folk to free jazz, best heard on his many fine albums for prestigious German label ECM. Here he presents his new Scandinavian quintet that adds electric bass and guitar to create a tougher, edgier sound palette for Stanko to explore. Performing darkly cinematic music from Swedish playwright Lars Noren’s play Terminal 7, alongside other mysterious and evocative new music, this marks a new creative chapter for one of Europe’s most compelling jazz artists. His new album Dark Eyes is out in the autumn on ECM. ‘Now in his 60s Stanko remains a fascinating, mysterious, sometimes rather severe pioneer of a unique kind of east European jazz influence’. John Fordham, The Guardian
