Many sucesses of Maciej Obara’s Trio made the band one of the most significant Polish jazz bands.
I’ve just recorded a new album which perfectly describes this particular moment I’m in right now and everything we’re talking about now. I wanted the music to reflect my latest emotions and experiences I’ve gained . And also not to be too intellectual and formally sophisticated. More coming from a heart and generating good energy which I want to share with jazz listeners.
/ Maciej Obara, an interview for Jazz Forum
I was moved by the first sounds of Maciej Obara’s Trio newest album. I was introduced to the charm of the music. Maciej Obara is a great musician, whose music is powerful, mature, deep, full of charm and beauty. It’s his own.
/ Tomasz Stańko
