Editors’ Notes

Faithful opens quietly with “An den kleinen Radioapparat,” a Han Eisler song from 1942. Bassist Slawomir Kurkiewicz and drummer Michal Miskiewicz’s playing could serve as a crash course in the art of nuance. The Wasilewski-penned “Night Train to You” has a strong sense of groove as it moves from one time signature to another; the track ranges from mellow to hard-driving, and check out the lines the pianist/leader carves out with his left hand. The title track is a version of an Ornette Coleman composition that first appeared on 1966’s The Empty Foxhole. Miskiewicz colors the music with his cymbal and tom work, and Kurkiewicz plays an expressive solo. The group brings great lyricism to the standard, “Ballad of the Sad Young Men,” while Hermeto Pascoal’s “Oz Guizos” unfolds at a snail’s pace, with every gesture lovingly placed. The band swings Paul Bley’s “Big Foot,” before wrapping things up with “Lugano Lake,” another original that showcases this band’s distinctive sound.

Customer Reviews

mind boggling

I bought this album right after its release and I cannot stop listening to it; it's simply mind boggling. The musicians are (individually and collectively) superb in their playing. The music is contemplative, fresh, and highly original. Their sound is fantastic.Although I liked "January" and "Trio" a lot, I think this album is even better. In my personal book, this is the best album I got the chance to listen to in the past 5 years or so. Highly, highly recommended.

Modern Water Music

This music just flows. It is at once complex and simple, solid and liquid moving the listener to both relax and think simultaneously. I have been getting more and more into jazz, of late, and this is the perfect music to both relax and study by; like Mozart, it stimulates thought.

Demure perfection

These guys are really special. I can't put my finger on what makes "their thing" work so well compared with many of the multitudes of contemporary trios out there, but this album (the best they have created to date IMO) simply shines on so many levels. The music is engaging but subtly so… catchy but in a nuanced sense. More than anything the playing and tunes here are extremely emotionally provocative. Highest endorsement!


Genre: Jazz

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Poland's Marcin Wasilewski began playing piano at the age of seven, and studied classical music in high school, but the course of his professional career as a musician was set at the age of 13 when he discovered and immersed himself in jazz, forming the Simple Acoustic Trio with friends Slawomir Kurkicwicz (bass) and Michal Miskiewicz (drums) a year or so later. The trio released several Poland-only albums under that group name, including 2000's Habanera and 2001's Lullaby for Rosemary (both on Not...
