Hailed by AllAboutJazz as one of the 15 most significant musicians in Europe, Polish-born trumpeter Tomasz Dąbrowski’s FREE4ARTS project combines contemporary jazz and improvised music with cinematic panoramas and indie rock elements.
My newest album with the beloved FREE4ARTS is out today. It's called "When I Come Across".
We recorded it in an abandoned factory on Fyn in Denmark together with three of my friends: Sven Dam Meinild, Simon Krebs and Kasper Tom. I honestly think this album is a real jewel.
The line-up is slightly unusual - quartet featuring guitar, barione saxophone, trumpet and drums. The original compositions mix contemporary jazz and free music with cinematic soundscapes and indie rock elements. The first album proved that despite an add instrumentation we can play interesting music and sound like a complete ensamble. Stylistically, the album is a continuation of the first album with this ensamble - "Six Months and Ten Drops" [Barefoot 2015]. However, substituting piano for guitar guides tje ensamble in a new direction, takes the music to a whole new level and gives it more edge.
I decided to record in an old abandoned factory on the countryside in Denmark because the post industrial surroundings fit this music so very well and I simply thing that such togetherness would not be possible in any studio.
