Maciej Obara Podcast

In the 25th episode of the ECM Podcast Polish alto-saxophonist Marciej Obara joins us to talk about his new album Frozen Silence, recorded with his long-standing quartet of Dominik Wania on piano, Ole Morten Vågan on bass and drummer Gard Nilssen. It is the group’s third album for the label and perhaps the quartet’s strongest musical statement to date, inspired by the dramatic landscapes of South West Poland.

Maciej talks about the different voices and colours his bandmates bring to the group, and about the various influences – from free jazz musicians like Bill Dixon to classical composers like Rachmaninoff – that informed the writing process of the music for the new album.
