MARCIN ŁOSIK TRIO: about
IF YOU ARE A SENSITIVE PERSON, WHAT YOU SEARCH FOR IN MUSIC IS BEAUTY, YOU FEEL
THE NEED TO LOOK FOR NEW OUTSTANDING JAZZ PROJECTS, YOU WILL FIND IT ALL IN THE
MUSIC OF ”MARCIN ŁOSIK TRIO” GROUP.
Marcin Łosik’s (piano) energetic phrase imbued with romanticism merges with inventive, very often surprisingly contrasting rhythm section. Robert Rasz’s (drums) round beat as if drawn by a soft line perfectly combines with Ksawery Wójciński’s (double bass) energetic phrasing. This creates another inspiration materializing itself into a complex, voracious and twisted improvisation. The trio keeps revolving around inspiration. Motifs, phrases, emotions. Sensing music together based on an exquisite music intuition – that is what Marcin Łosik Trio shows on stage.
Marcin Łosik Trio’s music is a real treat for a jazz enthusiast. The trio plays sophisticated music which emanates a strong message. Some pieces have been created for years, some of them have been composed very recently. One of the band’s fans expressed his impressions after one of the group’s concerts in a following way:
“I went to a jazz concert with my girlfriend, Marcin Łosik Trio were playing… , I’ll tell you about our impressions, I got completely high – I tripped out for 10 – 15 minutes – I was in a strange land; if anyone of you has ever wondered how to get into a state of intoxication without taking any psychoactive substances, it is the pure, innovatory, avant-garde music of Marcin Łosik Trio that led me to a state of ‘intellectual orgasm’. My girlfriend, on the other hand, had some ‘visions’ – thousands of thoughts were coming to her mind – she was thinking about refined dishes and things she dreams to realize one day… , I had one thing in my mind that it was a metaphysical experience which I hadn’t sensed at any electronic music or rock concerts. If it’s true that you must be mature enough to listen to jazz, today I have experienced the peak of my fascination with the music… If these few words have encouraged you to listen to their music, soon the trio will play another concert…’
Musicians who form the trio are sensitive artists, focused on widely understood improvised acoustic music, affiliated also with avant-garde circles.
