Maciej Obara Quartet
"The unobstructed sounds of Maciej Obara Quartet, a group with a strong talent to transform and adapt, oscillate extravagantly in mood, according to the emotional fragility or exhilarating imperiousness that might prevail." JazzTrail
Maciej Obara and Dominik Wania were part of Tomasz Stańko’s legendary quartet for a long time, and assumed the leading role in Polish jazz after Stańko’s death. The man himself described Maciej Obara as ‘a great musician whose music is strong, mature, deep and full of charm and beauty’. Maciej has, in the past, got two of the world’s best drummers, Nasheet Waits and Gard Nilssen, to play live with him, so he was definitely wide of the mark when he named his new album Unloved. It’s his first for the ECM label and has been met with huge acclaim, so this promises to be a Druga Godba jazz concert for the ages.
