The world-famous magazine AllAboutJazz.com just published the list of 15 most significant European musicians to be aware of. I am honored to be on this list.
"Polish (but now living in Copenhagen) trumpet player Tomasz Dabrowski's unique approach blends avant-jazz languages with Eastern European folk music. He collaborates with European and US musicians (he plays with Tyshawn Sorey and Kris Davis) also using a vintage "Balkan horn" and he is a and member of the Barefoot Collective. His projects range from the intimate and zen-like solo to his unpredictable trio with Nils Bo Davidsen on double bass and Anders Mogensen on drums, up to Free4Arts Quartet with Danish colleagues like Jacob Anderskov."

Morten Pedersen 5tet is a new band on the European scene of free jazz and improvised music. The music is ethereal and a complex mix of composition and improvisation.
