Sabina Meck Sextet feat. Wojciech Myrczek - Słowo na T - premiera 29.11.2019 (SJRecords 048)
“Słowo na T” is the title of Sabina Meck's third album, containing original compositions for her own texts, this time in Polish. The music uses elements characteristic of jazz, but expands beyond its limits by referring to other styles, often as distant as rock and classical music. The form of the composition is similar to songs. It combines simple melodies with strictly arranged accompaniment, while leaving space for improvisation to give the opportunity to show the individuality of each musician of the sextet.
Sabina Meck Sextet features:
Sabina Meck — vocals
Łukasz Kokoszko — guitar
Przemysław Chmiel — saxophone
Michał Jakubczak — piano
Piotr Narajowski — double bass
Szymon Madej — drums
Appearance: Wojciech Myrczek — vocals
