When Poland visits Portugal - Oles, Jorgensmann, Oles live in Lisbon
The Polish Embassy together with the Goethe Institut present this Thursday, the 5th of July, Theo Jorgensmann and the two brothers, Marcin Oles and Bartlomiej Brat Oles, a German-Polish Jazz trio.

Marcin on double bass, Bartlomiej on percussion and Theo on bass clarinet will bring the sounds of Directions, dating back to 2005 and elected by many as the best jazz album released in Poland that year, or from the most recent Live in Poznan, released this year.

The concert will take place at the Goethe Institut Gardens, at Campo Martires da Patria, 37, Lisbon, as parts of the Jazz in Goethe Garten 2007 Festival.

As some others describe them.....

"Marcin Oles plays with a captivating sense of confidence and vigor, never bottling up the improvisers nor backing every statement with stated or implied time."
All About Jazz

"Oles makes powerful statements in either the arco or pizzicato mode. His vigorous execution on the title tune dominates the soundscape."
Cadence Magazine

"Marcin and Bartlomej Oles belong to the most remarkable Polish musicians of the present."
Rheinische Post

"..bassist Marcin Oles and drummer Bartlomiej Brat Oles have become two of that country's most in-demand players. It's not just that they're a first-class rhythm section, but they're fine instant and singular composers as well"

"..the best hope of polish jazz."
Gazeta Wyborcza, Poland
