Michał Milczarek Trio will give concerts during this year’s edition of the Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival. One of the most interesting young bands on the Polish jazz scene perform twice in a JazzBar on 23rd and 24th of July. Concerts are held as part of the project Jazz po polsku, promoting Polish jazz in the international arena.
MM3 creates instrumental music which is a combination of modern jazz, rock and electronic. It is known as one of the fastest prospering groups in Polish improvised music. The band is known for a very intense concert activity, and Trio performances are considered to be extremely spontaneous and presenting jazz in a decidedly rock perspective. MM3 performs on the oldest and most recognizable jazz club in Edinburgh, the Jazz Bar, placed on Chambers Street. Concerts will take place on 23rd. of July at 6 p.m. and on 24th. at 8 p.m.
‘Alongside the music from our previous record, we shall present the pieces from our latest album, the Ambient Works. It is fully improvised. With each concert we try to convey the energy and ambience that was with us throughout the entire recording session. The stage is where the creation process takes place. We will try once more to maintain the balance between the ambient music and contemporary jazz. It will be the one and only performance as the pieces never sound the same or even alike,’ says Michał Milczarek on the upcoming trio’s concerts in Edinburgh.
MM3 has performed at many prestigious festivals: Hue Festival (Vietnam), International Ethno-Jazz Festival Flugery Lwowa, Jazz Bez Festival (Ukraine), Warszawa Singera Jewish Culture Festival, International Theater Festival Eye On Culture. The band has won the competition „Jazz Phonographic Debut of the Year”. They released three records: EP The Big Game (2012) and two longplay Squirrels and Butterflies (2014) and just released Ambient Works (April 2016, Boska Ent.).
Concerts are held as part of the project Jazz po polsku, promoting Polish jazz in the international arena and is organized by Plateaux Foundation and carried out in cooperation with the General Consulate of Republic of Poland in Edinburgh.
