piotr damasiewicz viennese connections with Chris Kasprzyk
We would like to introduce a new Polish- Austrian quartet led by the trumpeter and composer Piotr Damasiewicz in cooperation with viennese to the bone, versatile bassist Thomas Stempkowski , jazz and electronica drummer Alex Yannilos and polish Vienna based meticulously passionate saxophonist Krzysztof Kasprzyk. The music of the quartet is best described as “(…) expressive, free though very rhythmic and melodic, manic at times always lovingly passionate.” It goes back to dear to our hearts sounds of jazz of 60es and 70es where composed and conjointly improvised parts had an equal place and the energy between musicians and listeners during a live performance was the crucial part of a creating process. A vinyl "Vienna Suite" was released on the 10.10.20. The band plans a tour in clubs and festivals in Austria and Poland.
