MACIEJ OBARA QUARTET
Thursday June 2
MACIEJ OBARA alto saxophone DOMINIC WANIA piano OLE MORTEN VÅGAN bass GARD NILSSEN drums
Prioritizing their own quartet is bearing fruit - after intense touring and refining of a powerful collection of songs, the band ended up at ECM, and debuted in 2017 with the album Unloved. With him is Obara's co-founder Dominik Wania (Marilyn Mazur, Tomasz Stańko) who has his roots in both classical music and jazz, as well as the dynamic rhythm duo Ole Morten Vågan (Motif, Trondheim Jazz Orchestra) and Gard Nilssen (Team Hegdal, Supersonic Orchestra) providing a world class foundation for the band.. Lyrical style, strong compositions and a unique collective color, inspired by the Polish composer Henryk Mikolaj Górecki.
