Jaruzelski's Dream: Jazz Gawronski (Clean Feed)
Label: Clean Feed    
Released in: Portugal    

"If you're curious to know what's happening in the Transalpine scene besides the Italian Instabile Orchestra and its members personal projects, here you have the best of all examples. This is what's happening: freeform jazz with a groovy accent, played with refined technique, imagination, soul and guts.

An heir of the illustrious alto sax lineage coming from Eric Dolphy to Tim Berne, through Ornette Coleman and Henry Threadgill, Piero Bittolo Bon is on top of his skills and his razorsharp sound in "Jazz Gawronski". A member of the collective El Gallo Rojo, this young multi-instrumentalist (also playing alto and bass clarinets and flute) has already an astonishing CV: Anthony Braxton, John Tchicai, Ernest Dawkins, Tristan Honsinger and Jamaaladeen Tacuma are among his past partnerships.

Bassist Stefano Senni, also member of El Gallo Rojo, is a top figure in Italy, side by side with the likes of Enrico Rava, Stefano Bollani, Daniele D'Agaro and Zeno de Rossi, and internationally he already had the best of companies, be them from the mainstream or the avantgarde: Lee Konitz, Cedar Walton, Bobby Watson, George Cables, Tom Harrell, Eddie Henderson, Chris Speed, Ralph Alessi and Anthony Coleman, to only name a few.

Also indifferent to tendencies and styles inside the jazz domain is drummer extraordinaire Francesco Cusa. Founder of Improvvisatore Involontario collective, he played with almost everyone of the "who's who" list, from Steve Lacy and Kenny Wheeler to Gianluca Petrella and Carlos "Zíngaro", including Paolo Fresu, Tim Berne, Elliott Sharp, Butch Morris, Michel Godard and even the trash metal / jazz band Zu.

Freshness and urgency are to be found here, and that's all we can ask jazz to be nowadays. It's becoming an exception, and that's why this is such an extraordinary recording."-Clean Feed Records
