Project led by polish copenhagen-based saxophone player Kuba Więcek and cracow-based piano player Mateusz Gawęda. During Kuba’s last visit in New York City he had a chance to meet one of the greatest american trumpet players - Ralph Alessi.
This meeting led to organising a tour and a recording that will happen in November 2016.
Music written for this project by Mateusz and Kuba pays respect to their tradition as well as shows their fascination to the american jazz music.
They’ve also decided to hire one of the most in demand rhythm sections in Europe - Max Mucha on doublebass and berlin-based drummer Moritz Baumgärtner.
