opis wydawcy:
Oficyna fonograficzna Multikulti Project z przyjemnością przedstawia międzynarodowy skład, w którym usłyszymy polsko-duńskiego kontrabasistę Tomo Jacobsona, amerykańskiego saksofonistę Arama Sheltona (w Multikulti wydał już płytę „Dragons 1976” z 2007 roku), norwesko-duńskiego perkusistę Hakona Berre i polskiego pianistę Grzegorza Tarwida.
Zarejestrowana w Kopenhadze, w Monastic Studios płyta, wypełniona jest przez muzykę pełną pomysłów, swobody, pasji i wirtuozerii.
Porywają surowe, pozbawione zwyczajowej gładzi, faktury unisonów i improwizowane ornamentacje, zaskakuje brzmienie saksofonu Sheltona - ciemne i głębokie, ale niezwykle płynne i linearne.
Kluczem do świata wyobraźni czwórki muzyków są odwaga, prostota i swoboda. Żarliwa estetyka, wsparta solidnie na dwóch nogach - doskonałej komunikacji i warsztatowej sprawności, daje zdumiewający rezultat. Szlachetne, organiczne brzmienie zespołu sprawia, że udaje im się wprowadzić słuchacza w klimat mroczny i tajemniczy. Najmłodszy w składzie, pianista Grzegorz Tarwid, w każdym momencie najbardziej zagmatwanej improwizacji, wie, jaki dźwięk zagrać.
Dramaturgicznie przemyślana struktura płyty, od kameralistycznej narracji tytułowego "Hopes and Fears" po harmonicznie dopiętą ścianę dźwięku, w zamykającym płytę 'Ambitions and Doubts' to kolejny atut nagrania.
"Hopes and Fears" to blisko 40 minut drapieżnego i wielowymiarowego, prawdziwie współczesnego jazzu.
Dajmy się porwać muzyce kwartetu Shelton / Tarwid / Jacobson / Berre!

Liner Notes:
This album was recorded in Copenhagen where, even though none of us is actually Danish, our paths had suddenly crossed. The improvised music scene here is vibrant and ever changing, and our first meeting was a close call. Just as Aram was settling down after moving in from Oakland, California, and Grzegorz was packing down to move out to Cologne, Germany. Tomo & Hakon on the other hand, being respectively Polish and Norwegian, moved to Denmark long enough ago to be considered locals on the scene. You probably know the feeling when you meet someone and there is a connection right away? Now how likely is it, that it would happen with four people at once? Yet this is how we all felt about the music played. We instantly shared a collective intuition in how to shape the music, and how to find our individual voices in this conversation. In these first meetings, musicians have a choice: reveal yourself honestly with the hope of being accepted, or mask your individuality for the fear of rejection. We think we were honest with each other.

Enjoy the music Aram, Grzegorz, Tomo & Hakon

IKS
(. . .) "Hopes and Fears" to efekt spotkania międzynarodowego kwartetu Shelton / Tarwid / Jacobson / Berre. To wspólna kreacja i swobodna improwizacja, nagrana w Kopenhadze, w Monastic Studios. Instrumentaliści doskonale czują się w takiej konwencji. Najwyraźniej frajdę im sprawia odnajdywanie wspólnego wątku w tej niekoniecznie linearnej i dość surowej, chropowatej opowieści. W zamian dostajemy muzykę pełną barw, twórczego niepokoju, brzmieniowych nieoczywistości (. . .) autor: Tomasz Janas

Polish Jazz Recordings and Beyond * * * *:
A Danish CD, recorded in Copenhagen by a quartet, whose non of the members is Danish. But the vibrant free improvised music scene of this city attracted all of them to come and spend quite a time in Copenhagen.
Aram comes from Oakland, California; Grzegorz is Polish, but after studying in Denmark wanted to settle down in Cologne. Tomo is also Polish, while Hakon is Norwegian, but they both moved to Denmark long enough ago to be considered as locals.

The opening title track, "Hopes and Fears", is a 17 minutes long suite, in which the quartet shows all its qualities and concepts. It is free improvised music, with focus on collective improvisations and conversations between the di fferent instruments. Aram play mostly clear sounds, but is also capable of deforming them. Grzegorz plays at the beginning in a sense in a minimalist and frugal way: he provides not to many tones. This, however, changes around the 4th minutes, when the first explosion of emotions takes place. Tomo uses during that time mostly a bow, while the drums accent delicately percussion background. During the beautiful lyrical part, in which Grzegorz plays some melodic lines, Tomo turns to finger picked bass. Aram comes back with stronger, but clean motifs, and the mood augments slowly to achieve another climax just before the end. What a hell it this music? How to classify it? There are clearly in fluences here of the contemporary Scandinavian and Polish free jazz and free improvised music, maybe some quartets of Mikołaj Trzaska? But, frankly speaking everybody is here truly original. There are not too many blasts or overblown parts, so according to my own classification it is a "kind free jazz".
The second track, "Daydreams and Terrors", has only 6 minutes,a nd is even more abstract than the first, with some inside-outside piano elements, explorations of the saxophone sound possibilities and great works of the bowed bass. Percussion is again supporting all that mostly from the background. That is perhaps I like the most the last, 15 minutes long "Ambitions and Doubts", in which Haken drumming is better exposed. This track ha a more "traditional" free jazz character, with Aram and Grzegorz playing fantastic expressive duo, supported ingeniously by the section. After 4 minutes, or so, a quiet part starts, first with nicely exposed bass lines. After few minutes of the abstract conversations with the bass playing a leading role, a kind of repetitive motifs appear and augment, to transform into another eruption of power.
Fantastic stuff !!! If I had to find some analogies and associations, I would have named Guillerhmo Gregorio and his music, Francois Carrier and Michel Lambert, and especially in the second part of the last track, John Coltrane
and Cecil Taylor.
Listen to the astonishing final solo of Grzegorz!!!
