Dizzy's Club

Jazztopad Festival Presents: Obara International Quartet

With alto saxophonist Maciej Obara, pianist Dominik Wania, bassist Ole Morten Vagan, and drummer Gard Nilssen

Polish saxophonist and composer Maciej Obara burst onto the international jazz scene after winning the Bielska Zadymka Jazz Contest in 2006 for Message from Oyaho. His International Quartet features fellow Pole, pianist Dominik Wania, plus two of Norway’s most in-demand jazz musicians, Ole Morten Vagan and Gard Nilssen. The group, called “nothing short of a revelation” by John Kelman of All About Jazz, offers a frenetic energy and a bold, harmonically dense sound. Material ranges from slow and sentimental to almost aggressively busy, held together in either case by highly reactive and technically capable musicians.

Presented in partnership with the Polish Cultural Institute New York.
