 TRAVELLER 

Najnowsza płyta Artur Dutkiewicz Trio „Traveller” /04.2017/ zawierająca 

w całości kompozycje pianisty, jest wewnętrzną podróżą po różnych, 

wzajemnie dopełniających się nastrojach.

Duży ładunek emocjonalny ekspresyjnych wątków, elementy polskiej  muzyki ludowej oraz world music łączą się tu z głębią przekazu.

Całość jest silnie osadzona w korzeniach improwizacji jazzowej.

„Traveller” jest nie tylko echem licznych tournee ale   przede wszystkim podróżą w głąb siebie, na najdłuższej drodze życia: z głowy do serca.

PRANA

Compositions by the band's leader Artur Dutkiewicz.

"Prana" in Sanskrit - the oldest language in the world - is the force and energy of life, manifested as enthusiasm, joy and creativity. And that's the music on this album.

A

Artur Dutkiewicz's compositions are Slavic singing (Polish Mazurka), rhythm and improvisational idiom of contemporary jazz (Prana) as well as calm and meditative phrases (Om Namo Bhagavate). The last piece (Wujek Tomek), which evokes the blues roots of jazz, is dedicated to the memory of the legendary saxophonist - Tomasz Szukalski, with whom the pianist has performed for many years .

A

The leader's stunning solos and his unconventional management as well as the collaboration of all musicians are a great strength. In my opinion, this is the best pianist trio in his career. I recall (despite the different stylistics) the historical and exemplary trios by Ahmad Jamal for such a line-up.

Artur Dutkiewicz has achieved his own style, a bright musical personality, he is recognizable, what is most important for a jazzman.

HENDRIX PIANO

A

Legendary pieces by Jimi Hendrix Hey Joe, Crosstown Traffic, Angel, Manic Depression, Little Wing, an excuse to improvise using your own contemporary jazz language, at the same time reflecting the "Hendrix" character of these pieces.

The album is the first album in jazz history to present Hendrix's music in a piano jazz trio

.

Excellent arrangements, full of unexpected turns, did not allow me to tear myself away from listening to this album

/ "Hendrix Piano" /. This project can be summarized briefly: a bold idea and great implementation.

This is an album worth reaching for out of curiosity

and come back many times for the sheer pleasure of listening to it. A

INDIVIDUAL IMPROVISATIONS

A

Pieces from the album "Niemen Improwizacje". These are surprising, jazz versions of the legendary works by Czesław Niemen, such as:

Dream about Warsaw, Pod Papugami, Remembrance, Bema Remembrance, Funeral Rhapsody, One Heart, Do you still remember me, Ciuciubabka.

Artur Dutkiewicz's trio treated them as jazz standards. They provide an excuse to improvise with modern means of expression.

"Niemen Improvisations" by Artur Dutkiewicz

The very interesting album "Niemen Improwizacje" by Artur Dutkiewicz, which deals with the compositions of Czesław Niemen.

How can you deal with "monumental" hits today? I answer - great.
