Wojciech Jachna / Ksawery Wójciński – conversation with space

Redakcja, mat. pras.

The duet of Wojciech Jachna - one of the most original trumpeters on the jazz scene and Ksawery Wójciński - one of the most unusual double bass players of his generation, became known to the audience withe their first album "Night Talks” which was applauded both by music fans and also critics.

Their music was compared to the achievements of other, often more famous duets like Joelle Leandre / Jean-Luc Capozzo, Pascal Niggenkemper / Thomas Heberer or Alan Silva and Jacques Coursil. However, it is not about comparison. The music of the Jachna / Wójciński duo can confidently function without such references and is unique in itself. It is rare for two artistic personalities to look at the world in such a different way and at the same time to find such wonderful common space.

For the label, it is rewarding to know that the duet project become so important to the both artists that they decided not to give up after the first recording, but to continue their musical explorations.

And it is nicest still, that when given the opportunity to release their second album both musicians decided to return to the label in which they released their first recording.

"Conversation with Space" was created during two recording sessions. The first one took place in Warsaw's LADOM in May last year and in Warsaw's club Brain in early June. The recording and mastering was made by Tomasz Glazik, who also made a guest appearance in the only piece as a saxophonist.
