A major new presence on the jazz guitar scene. --Stephen Graham, UK journalist
Often compared to Pat Metheny and Al Di Meola, London/Paris-based guitarist Maciek Pysz released his new album A Journey, on October 15, 2015 (Dot Time Records). Recorded in December 2014 at the famous Artesuono studio in Italy, the album features the celebrated Daniele Di Bonaventura on piano and bandoneon along with bassist Yuri Goloubev and drummer Asaf Sirkis. In a recent review, UK based jazz journalist, Stephen Graham stated that Maciek is “...a major new presence on the jazz guitar scene". With the release of A Journey Maciek has once again proven this statement to be true.

About Maciek Pysz

Playing guitar was all Maciek Pysz ever wanted to do. Inspired by a long list of artists including Ralph Towner, Sylvain Luc, Pat Metheny, John McLaughlin, Al Di Meola among others. His influences come from Tango, Flamenco, Latin, Jazz, Brazilian and Classical music but his sound is his own. Critic Stephen Graham, Marlbank (2013) stated that his compositions show “genuine improvisational flair enveloping the excellent tunes. The tunes speak to you.” As a performer, he creates a warm, sensual, energizing atmosphere which is appreciated by audiences around the world.

He moved to London in 2003 and quickly established himself as an up-and-coming artist and has toured the UK, USA and Europe with his own projects and as a sideman to other artists. Maciek established his project, the Maciek Pysz Trio, in 2008 and recorded his first EP “Discoveries” the same year. In 2010, he established his current trio with drummer Asaf Sirkis and bassist Yuri Goloubev. His first full studio album “Insight” was released in 2013 on 33 Jazz Records and later that year toured South of France and performed at the London Jazz Festival, Ceuta Jazz Festival.

Maciek recorded his second studio album ‘A Journey’ in December 2014 at Artesuono Studios in Italy, engineered by Stefano Amerio. The album features bandoneon and pianist Daniele di Bonaventura as well as Maciek’s long established trio with Yuri Goloubev on double bass and Asaf Sirkis on drums.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
