Four years after the landmark album Wislawa, the great Polish trumpeter Tomasz Stankos New York Quartet returns with another masterful recording, December Avenue.

Always an insightful bandleader, Stanko here encourages spirited improvisation to flower around his characteristically melancholic and soulful themes, and all players are presented to best advantage. New band member Reuben Rogers, originally from the Virgin Islands and perhaps best-known for his work with Charles Lloyd, is a splendid addition to the team, establishing a profound understanding with Cuban-born pianist David Virelles and Detroit drummer Gerald Cleaver.

JazzTimes, reviewing the band in concert, reflected on the strengths of the individual players: Stanko has never had a piano player like Virelles. When his moments came, he configured his own lyrical domain within the world of a Stanko song. For that matter, Stanko has never had a bassist and drummer like Rogers and Cleaver, with their hard edges and their volatile energy.

 

December Avenue was recorded at Studios La Buissonne in the South of France in June 2016 and produced by Manfred Eicher.
