Suite for Trio + by Marcin Olés/Mikolaj Trzaska/Brat Olés/Jean Luc Cappozzo

Agile Polish twins Marcin and Brat Olés gestated on Suite trio + after to listenig to French trumpeter Jean-Luc Cappozzo’s work done with Louis Sclavis. Suite trio + is an all-hotshot entity, encompassing reedist Mikolaj Trzaska, drummer Bartlomiej Brat Olés, bassist Marcin Olés and of course, trumpeter Jean-Luc Cappozzo. The abecedarian signal springs from the nitty-gritty of the Olés's duo, always energized, experimental and filled with improvisational aesthetics.

"Freetan" opens the album with succinct improvised water basin sounds created by Bart Olés then broaching into a duo with Trzaska’s clarinet’s / Marcin Olés’s string’s. Cappozzo’s trumpet bursts forth fizzing with limerick tones. "Suite for Trio+" is a delight herding together from beautiful mysterious to tuneful paces; from blues vibrations to topsy-turvy discrepancy. Cappozzo’s flugelhorn is full of free asseverations giving this piece an astounding soundscape.

"JLC" (without doubt Jean-Luc Cappozzo’s theme) commences with a spectacular trumpet solo that lasts almost two minutes. Cappozzo’s ardour for improvisational music is the result of exhaustive study and scrutiny. At ease in both classical and avant-garde styles, his palette of de-constructed sounds is amazingly Robertson-like. On "Budmo" the quartet conceals and explores a myriad of lyrical means. "5-5" allows the horns/drums to move in a swinging brawl. Fireball drums assign the final fashion. "Bolero Stefana" is a contemporary piece that embraces tense poignancy. Trzaska’s clarinet solo is awesome as well as his pas de deux bass clarinet which booms with sounds and prickling harmonies. Marcin Olés’ arco and string virtuosity marries Cappozzo’s horn for a wonderful duet on "N-Ju". Bart Oles’s tricky sticks frees up Trzaska who easily explores the free gaps. The quartet collides in a framed space recalling Klezmer rhythms. "Urodzaj" ends in a surreal mood. The album certifies the talents of these four musicians reaching intensity and soulship.

Suite for Trio +, correlates both of the amazing Olés’s authorship and their improvisational skills. Jean-Luc Cappozzo, Mikolaj Trzaska, Marcin and Brat Olés invest in the spaces with respect and knack for lyricism to deliver a memorable release. A gem!
