Very different Stanko from the new releases. It's Stanko's "electric period", but it's also not at all like Miles 80's stuff: There's no drums here, and the music is just much more tasteful and sophisticated. The Skowron-Szczurek duo create an incredibly groovy background for Stanko's trumpet with just an electric piano and a bass (there's no drummer here!), while Tadeusz Sudnik adds various electronic percussion-like noises to the mix. The most important element that makes this work so beautifully is the partnership between Skowron's electric piano and Stanko's trumpet. Skowron's piano always engages with Stanko, the two dance around each other, building counterpoints, completing each other, and there's such natural beauty to these duos that you can sing along to them! Skowron is an underrated genius: I'm convinced that he builds his lines from some absolutely ridiculous material, children's songs, marches, cabaret tunes, but his harmonies are electrifying. All in all it's Stanko's best record. I wish there was some place where you could get at least some taste of this music, but for now it seems that the only way is to just buy the import CD.

What I like about Stanko is he doesnt rely on one style... like Dave Douglas. Those masters know how to float from one universe to another with great success. Here, the context is electronic impros. It's new, it's fresh and needs to be listened on an almost audiophile sound system. (let's just say that you need a little bit of depth in sound so a very good pair of speakers will help.. no headphones, this music needs space). The trumpet is definitly Stanko's. Deep and rich sounds, glissandos, silences, high notes and all that east european feeling that talks right to your heart. To be listened many times and not for all ears. Love it!
