Event Information

The ever popular Julian Costello Quartet are back at Jazz Café POSK with virtuoso guitarist Maciek Pysz playing contemporary music incorporating a range of different grooves, moods and colours. This will be an evening of engaging jazz with a selection of tunes that are structured and scored while others will be free flowing and left to chance. They will be playing original compositions by both Julian and Maciek and bringing their own take on some jazz standards. “an emotive and soulful tenor player” ….Jazzwise
“Pysz is a quiet virtuoso who has developed into one of the most distinctive guitarists around”…..The Jazz Mann

“Costello is an extremely moody player on both saxophones and his compositions cover many musical areas …an emotive and soulful tenor player” – Jazzwise magazine

The new album by Julian Costello Quartet. It’s serene, sublime and sinuous, very satisfying, trust me! It features Julian on saxes, Maciek, Yuri and Adam so a stellar line up. It was recorded, mixed and mastered at Artesuono Studio in Italy by Stefano Amerio the fifth artist in the room. Mary James

“Once in a while, an album like this appears on the horizon, becoming the unputdownable “Earworm” that Costello portrays at the heart of his colourful recording”. Adrian Pallant London Jazz News

“The musical and cultural polarity displayed by this International group from their diverse backgrounds is proof that open music can provide the perfect meeting place to create something unique” Iain Ballamy 

“W swojej twórczości artysta stawia na to, co w muzyce sprawdzało się od wieków – estetyczną linię melodyczną na tle starannego i przemyślanego szkieletu harmonicznego”. Marcin Pulawski

“Un très bon saxophoniste britannique…..nous avons trouvé des qualités à son disque. Groupe solide et musique captivante’. Culture Jazz  France
