Polish trumpet legend Tomasz Stanko always keeps company with the most formidable young players on the scene. Dividing his time between Warsaw and New York City, he’s recorded a series of taut, lyrically expansive sessions for ECM, alternating between emerging European stars and heavyweight Gotham improvisers. Stanko’s current ECM recording Wislawa is inspired by the poetry of Wisława Symborska, the Polish poet, essayist and Nobel Laureate. The all-star New York Quartet he brings to The Jazz Bakery’s Movable Feast includes pianist David Virelles, drummer Gerald Cleaver and bassist Reuben Rogers. They appear on Saturday, March 28th at 8:00 p.m. at the Kirk Douglas Theatre in Culver City.

Stevens has been holding forth at Desert Rose Restaurant in Hollywood , CA for the last three years.  His trio includes Jon Mayer (piano) and Harvey Newmark (bass).  This particular Saturday evening, January 17, they had special guest, saxophonist John Altman, who is visiting from England.  Altman plays a curved soprano saxophone that makes a marvelous sound - even better than a straight soprano sax, in my opinion.
