“Reading Wisława Szymborska's words gave me many ideas and insights. Meeting her and interacting with her poetry also gave impetus to this music, which I would like to dedicate, respectfully, to her memory.”
You can put this one into the 'definitely
something to look forward to' category. I've posted here numerous times about poet Wisława Szymborska
; I've also posted about trumpeter Tomasz Stańko
. The album is due out from ECM
this week. Stańko is a wonderfully understated musician who tends to gather really talented young collaborators.
