Tomasz Stanko

Jazz trumpeter Tomasz Stanko began his tenure as a major force in European free jazz in the early '60s with the formation of the quartet Jazz Darins in 1962 with Adam Makowicz. From 1963 to 1967 he played with Krzysztof Komeda in a group that revolutionized European jazz and made an impact across the Atlantic as well. Stanko also put in time with Andrzej Trzaskowski in the mid-'60s before leading his own quintet from 1968 to 1973. The Tomasz Stanko Quintet, which included Muniak and Zbigniew Seifert, garnered considerable critical acclaim, especially for their tribute to Komeda entitled Music for K. The early '70s brought collaborations with a number of avant-garde and creative jazz artists, including the Globe Unity Orchestra, Michal Urbaniak, Cecil Taylor, and Gary Peacock. From 1974 to 1978, Stanko played in a quartet with Edward Vesala, then returned to performing as a leader and soloist. The '80s brought Stanko collaborations with Chico Freeman in Freeman's group Heavy Life, as well as work with James Spaulding, Jack DeJohnette, and Rufus Reid. He was also briefly part of Cecil Taylor's big band in 1984. Shortly afterward, he formed another ensemble, Freelectronic. The '90s brought an alliance with ECM, which issued some of Stanko's most acclaimed work, including another lush, gorgeous tribute to Komeda, 1997's Litania, which was heavy with that composer's film work. The follow-up on ECM, 2000's From the Green Hill, drew from many of the same emotional and historic sources as Komeda's work, but this time the compositions were Stanko's. In 2002, his contributions to European jazz were honored when he was issued the very first European Prize, which was intended to honor outstanding European jazz musicians. During the final round of voting from 21 critics from as many countries, Stanko won ten votes, narrowly topping the runner-up, Dutch piano player Misha Mengelberg. That same year, Soul of Things was released on ECM, followed by Suspended Night in 2004, also on ECM. Too Pee appeared in 2006, as did Chameleon and Lontano. In 2007, Stanko led a session that became the widely acclaimed, From the Green Hill. His collaborators on the session were all bandleaders: violinist Michelle Makarski, saxophonist John Surman, bandoneon master Dino Saluzzi, drummer Jon Christensen, and bassist Anders Jormin. In 2009, Stanko led a brand new band for Dark Eyes, which included Danish guitarist Jakob Bro and bassist Anders Christensen, along with Finnish pianist Alex Tuomarila and drummer Olavi Louhivuori. All were new names to ECM's roster. Stanko stayed busy touring and playing between different ensembles for the next three years. In 2013 Wislawa, a double-live album with his New York quartet, appeared. ~ Stacia Proefrock, Rovi

I've always enjoyed Rava's work. As a very young student in the 1960s, I have one of his jazz method books. He's obviously influenced by Miles Davis' late 1960s work. But aren't we all!!
