ATOM STRING QUARTET: Penderecki (Szczecin Philharmonic)
Warsaw’s Atom String Quartet was founded in 2010 by violinists Dawid Lubowicz and Mateusz Smoczyński, altoviolist Michał Zaborski and cellist Krzysztof Lenczowski. On its newest album, one of the leading and most intriguing improvising string quartets in the world ventures outside the world of jazz into the music of the great Polish contemporary compser Krzysztof Penderecki. Bat rather then tackling his avant garde works, they opted instead for his older, more traditional compositions. Some of these pieces are executed literally from the score, but others allow the ATQ to take liberty in improvised departures. Exhilarating!

ANASTASIA LYUTOVA: Some Like It Jazz (Venus Records)
JEPPE ZEEBERG: Universal Disappointment (self produced ZEE201901)
Jeppe Zeeberg is a genius piano player, and through his five solo records he have proven that he is something very special. And on his new record,«Universal Disappointment», he, and his band, sounds like Frank Zappa or Captain Beefheart in one monent, Erroll Garner the next and Cecil Taylor the third. In this special prosject he cooperate with his fellows in Horse Orchestra, the great saxophone player Laura Toxværed and one of his other band projects, and it sound fantastic! Listen to some of Toxværds or the guitar player Henrik Olssons solos together with Zeebergs own solos on this record, and you are sold!
