En Attendant / Marcin Wasilewski Trio
"There is a galaxy of piano trios in the jazz universe today," BBC Music Magazine has noted, "but few shine as brightly as Marcin Wasilewski's." On their seventh ECM album, the versatile Polish group illuminates a characteristically wide spectrum of music. "En Attendant" features collectively crafted pieces alongside Wasilewski's malleable "Glimmer of Hope," Carla Bley's timeless "Vashkar," the hypnotizing The Doors classic "Riders On The Storm" and a foray into Johann Sebastian Bach's Goldberg Variations. Fluid interplay is the hallmark of this trio, whose more than a quarter-century of playing together has led to an almost telepathically deep understanding between Wasilewski, bassist Kurkiewicz and drummer Miskiewicz. "En attendant" was recorded in August 2019 at La Buissonne Studios in the South of France and produced by Manfred Eicher.
