Poland’s Marcin Wasilewski began performing piano at age seven, and studied classical music in senior high school, but the span of his professional profession being a musician was place at age 13 when he discovered and immersed himself in jazz, forming the easy Acoustic Trio with close friends Slawomir Kurkicwicz (bass) and Michal Miskiewicz (drums) a 12 months later. The trio released many Poland-only albums under that group name, including 2000’s Habanera and 2001’s Lullaby for Rosemary (both on Not really Two Information), before famous Polish trumpeter Tomasz Stanko discovered them plus they shortly became his tempo portion of choice, documenting 2002’s The Spirit of Issues and 2004’s Suspended Evening with Stanko. Wasilewski, Kurkicwicz, and Miskiewicz stepped from their own once again for 2005’s Trio, released by Manfred Eicher’s ECM Information. Another ECM record, January, made an appearance in 2008. Faithful made an appearance in 2011, with another ECM record, Spark of Lifestyle, arriving in 2014.
