Maciek Pysz is a composer and guitarist who is creating the best work of his career, so far, in his second album ‘A Journey’, to be released on Dot Time Records. ‘A Journey’ was recorded at Artesuono studio in Italy and takes his work to another dimension, reaching new heights stylistically, technically and emotionally. By using the eloquence and dance rhythms of a bandoneon and piano, Maciek’s music describes his feelings about the people and places he encountered on his travels across Europe. It brings a magical atmosphere and something from another era to his music. It also provides a feeling of longing and nostalgia with which he identifies.
His long-standing trio of double bassist Yuri Goloubev and drummer Asaf Sirkis will feature on this gig. Maciek’s sound is warm, natural, conversational and his style is unhurried. Audiences are captivated by his original compositions, the delicacy and beautiful phrasing, the passion and joyfulness of execution.
Since moving to the UK in 2003, the self-taught Pysz rapidly established his reputation and toured in the USA and Europe with his own projects and as a sideman. Maciek has played at Ronnie Scott’s, Pizza Express Jazz Club, The Forge, La Note Bleue, Blue Note Poznan, London Jazz Festival, Hull Jazz Festival and Ealing Jazz Festival to name but a few venues and festivals. ‘A Journey’ will be launched at The Forge, London on 18 November 2015 during the EFG London Jazz Festival.
Lineup: The established Trio consists of Maciek Pysz on acoustic and classical guitars, acclaimed bassist Yuri Goloubev, and versatile and sensitive percussionist Asaf Sirkis.
