SLOW is releasing their 3rd album „Under Everchanging Sky” on Jun 24th.2022. The music this time was composed, arranged and produced by the group’s leader and guitar player Tomasz Kaczmarczyk. This new CD from SLOW is much more stylistically diverse than previous releases. We can find here mainly melodic contemporary jazz, but also pieces inspired by classic bebop and world music. Leading themes, guitar and saxophone improvisations by Leszek Szczerba are set in the harmonic landscape created by the pianist Krzysztof Wermiński - they define the sound of the band since its debut in 2011. The whole thing is built on the foundation of a very strong rhythm section, bassist Tomasz Grabowy and drummer Sławomir Berny. Berny plays a double role here, because apart from the drum set, he plays also dozens of various and often exotic percussion instruments.
In terms of arrangement, this music is also quite diverse - from calm and spacious ballads (Yolanda, Under Everchaning Sky) through multi-layered, rhythmically complex and powerfully grooving sound structures (Grasshopper, The Entanglement) to crazy tempos and wild improvisations (Bebop Baroque) and trance rhytms of North Africa (Jemaa el-Fna).
The coherence of the album is ensured by sound of the soloists - saxophones and various guitars played by Tomasz Kaczmarczyk, who uses willingly both electric and acoustic instruments, however his trademark is definitely the sound of a nylon string guitar.
The media partners of the album are Magazyn Gitarzysta and Radio RAM from Wrocław. The album was recorded in the new Slowmusic Studio in Kąty Wrocławskie.
