Followers of the Marcin Wasilewski Trio have long clamoured for a live album. The Polish group made this one “by accident”, unaware that their August 2016 performance at Jazz Middelheim in Antwerp had been recorded by the festival. On listening, they felt that it captured the soul of things rather well, “maybe because there was no awareness of playing to the microphone.” Unselfconsciously dynamic and outgoing, the trio draws an enthusiastic response from the audience. “Being out in front of an audience of 4,000 doesn’t change your playing or your skills,” Marcin Wasilewski reflects, “but with a crowd of this size you have to project more energy. You can hear that in this recording.” Bassist Slawomir Kurkiewicz adds, “I think this album nicely captures what we have developed over the years in the live playing, and the way that the music can change in concert. It’s an important document for us.”
For the Wasilewski Trio, studio and live are complementary experiences. “Studio work is quite a hermetic process,” says Marcin. “It’s where we try to get optimal, compact, condensed versions of the pieces. And live work has to do with adjusting the flow and communicating with an audience. We like both aspects.”
Repertoire on Live is drawn largely from the programme developed for Spark of Life, the group’s 2013 collaboration with saxophonist Joakim Milder, now presented in extended and cranked-up versions for piano trio. Spark of Life’s title track flows seamlessly into “Sudovian Dance” at the start of the album. Other Wasilewski originals here are “Three Reflections”, “Austin” (with particularly graceful solos by Slawomir and Marcin) and “Night Train To You” (first heard on 2011’s Faithful) which works up a tremendous head of steam. “Actual Proof” effectively translates the energy and percolating rhythms of this Herbie Hancock piece (written for the movie The Spook Who Sat By The Door and further developed on 1974’s Thrust) into the acoustic context – a powerhouse performance by Marcin Wasilewski, Slawomir Kurkiewicz and Michal Miskiewicz. The trio members count Hancock amongst their formative influences.
