Maciej Obara Quartet


Unloved

Music of comet trains, sounds like falling shadows, oscillating, shimmering light, comforting uncertainty. Polish alto-saxophonist Macief Obara and his fellow magicians – pianist Dominik Wania, bassist Ole Morten Vågan and drummer Gard Nissen – wander on the crests of night, stride through layers of darkness, catch gleaming pulses from nothing, padding along as if sleep-walking, landing on moonlit clearings and dancing with witches. The award-winning Polish-Norwegian quartet had a celebrated ECM-debut and have over six years of ample performing practise achieved a fascinating condensation of a fiercely lyrical sound quality alternating with rougher moods – in a sound-frame full of sublime internal tension, open eruptions and smouldering as well as flaming edges. Their Berlin debut is at Jazzfest – a musical indulgence, just the thing for the midnight hours.
