I just came back from Vadsø/Varangerfestivalen, where I had the great honour and privilege to play with the legendary Polish trumpetplayer Tomasz Stanko and his quintet.
I was substituting for the band’s regular guitarplayer, and it was so much fun! Tomasz’ compositions are really fascinating, totally open but still structured. Beautiful pieces.
The interplay of the group was very strong, and it was a true joy for me to play with those cats.
PS! Leaving for this summer’s last Lapland adventure on saturday. One week in the wild, hunting for big browntrout. Can’t wait (I’m bringing a (better) camera)!
