This is the debut album as a leader by Polish Jazz guitarist / composer Wlodzimierz KnasFind albums by this artist, recorded in a sextet setting with trumpeter Pawel SurmanFind albums by this artist, saxophonist Lukasz KluczniakFind albums by this artist, pianist Michal RoratFind albums by this artist, bassist Michal KapczukFind albums by this artist and drummer Grzegorz MaslowskiFind albums by this artist. The album presents seven original compositions, all by Knas.
The music sits well within the contemporary mainstream Jazz, with very well structured compositions and ensemble arrangements, which allow all the participants to show their respective chops. Knas selected representatives of the young Polish Jazz generation, which invigorated the entire proceedings and creates a splendid flow and resourceful atmosphere.
Knas plays very well in a diverse stylistic range, from classic to modern electric Jazz guitar, performing with fluency and excellent feel. All the members of the sextet also play flawlessly and display technique and talent. The rhythm section drives the music steadily, without being over dominant and the brass players contribute solid solos and excellent background sound layers.
Overall this is an excellent mainstream Jazz album, with great melody lines and elegant ensemble execution, which is a pleasure to listen to. Guitar enthusiasts should find this especially interesting, as most albums featuring guitar tend to present the Fusion approach, and this album stays within the good old Jazz guitar idiom. Recommended!
