Kaluza, Anna / Artur Majewski / Rafal Mazur / Kuba Suchar: Tone Hunting (Clean Feed)
Label: Clean Feed    
Released in: Portugal    

"This recording confirms everything you may have heard about the dynamism and richness of the Polish jazz and improvised music scene, more and more a rival of the much talked Scandinavian and Portuguese ones. German alto saxophonist Anna Kaluza met in Wroclaw three of the most important musicians around for an exquisite session of abstract jazz, resulting in this beautiful "Tone Hunting". Herself a new value in ascension, coming from a collaboration with the London Improvisers Orchestra and the very welcomed creation of the Berlin Improvisers Orchestra, she couldn't have found more defiant partners.

Artur Majewski is on his way to become one of the most intriguing trumpeters in Europe, judging from his work with drums / trumpet duo Mikrokolektyw, co-led with Suchar and the Foton Quartet. Rafal Mazur is a virtuoso of the acoustic bass guitar, having developed extended techniques of his own for its definitive emancipation as an instrument. Drummer (and also a recognized intermedia artist) Kuba Suchar already crossed Poland's frontiers, having international partnerships with such different people as Rob Mazurek, Nicole Mitchell, Keith Rowe, Kevin Drumm and Matt Bauder, among others. They're hunting tones indeed, but hear what they do to get them..."-Clean Feed
