"This release is special. Why' Well Stanko's in the company of his working Polish band and that is unusual as his projects for ECM tend to be with international groups. Here it's with a trio led by pianist Marcin Wasilewski the force behind the Simple Acoustic Trio, currently Poland's top jazz group. The fare is typically Stanko of the 1990s; theme-heavy, poised but often, surprisingly for such abstract music, redolent of the blues. One of Stanko's earliest favourite musicians was Clifford Brown and Brownie's ghost sometimes hovers over this album particularly as it gets going. However, since Stanko is best known as an avantgarde pioneer it's not a case of his having mellowed to the point of absurdity. Instead, he has produced a deft, beautiful work and it's easy for me to claim that as a composer he is a natural and equal successor to the great Krzysztof Komeda."

"Going from strength to strength over the past few years, veteran Polish trumpeter Tomasz Stanko presents this moody, textured suite of original tunes with his young road band as a follow-up to his recent ECM supergroup set From the Green Hill and his sublime tribute to film composer/band-leader Krzysztof Komeda, Litania. Stanko's quartet - the members of which have played with the leader since they were in their teens - performs his music with telepathic intimacy, and the trumpeter's lines have never been more subtly emotive. Although the album has its own, very European atmosphere, the Soul of Things vibe is reminiscent of Kind of Blue, with a common indigo hue to the motifs, a relaxed pace throughout, and a virtuosic economy of expression. Abetting Stanko's carefully groomed gestalt is the usual beautifully resonant ECM sound. Few jazz recordings, on either side of the Atlantic, are being made with this much poetry."

Exceptional balladesque album by the great darktoned trumpeter and his excellent young Polish quartet. There is a timeless feel to 'Soul of Things' that relates to Stanko's roots as a player. The forward-looking musician is also looking back here, and re-connecting with early influences. He triggers memories of his first heroes - memories of Miles, memories of Chet Baker - in his lonesome, soulful soliloquies.
