Tomasz Stańko - trumpet
Stu Martin - drums, ECM synhi
Janusz Stefański - drums
...( ) Going back to music it owes a lot of as much to Stańko as to his partners. He is backed by two drummers: Janusz Stefański and Stu Martin who however mainly plays on synthesizer(s). Drums and synth co-work in a percussive manner and make music stomping, thudding and rumbling. It gives me impression of some kind of extraterrestrial ship which upon landing on planet Earth tries to establish contact with locals by emitting very unusual sounds. If somebody listened before to the recordings of Miles Davis of that era (like for example "Bitches Brew") he will immediately recognize similar patterns in both these languages. It's trance-like, it's psychedelic, it's spiritual, it's simply music of the highest caliber!
