Maciek Pysz

A quiet virtuoso who has developed into one of the most distinctive guitarists around” Ian Mann, The Jazz Mann. Born in 1982 in Poland, guitarist and composer Maciek Pysz has been playing guitar since the age of 11, it was all he ever wanted to do and he is self-taught. He has been inspired by musicians such as Ralph Towner, Sylvain Luc, Pat Metheny, Joe Pass, John McLaughlin, Bireli Lagrene, Chick Corea, Wolfgang Muthspiel, Richard Galliano, Enrico Pieranuzi, Paolo Fresu and Michel Petrucciani to name a few. Pysz mainly plays Godin acoustic and classical guitars. His influences come from Tango, Flamenco, Latin, Jazz, Brazilian and Classical music but his sound is his own, and his compositions show “genuine improvisational flair enveloping the excellent tunes. The tunes speak to you.” (Critic Stephen Graham, Marlbank, July 2013). As a performer, he creates a warm, sensual, energising atmosphere which is appreciated by audiences around the world.

”Guitarist Maciek Pysz’s “Insight” is a gorgeous revelation of an album. Supported by the always inventive playing of noted drummer Asaf Sirkis and bassist Yuri Goloubev, Pysz’s acoustic lines may be perfect, pure and smoothly played, but their intent is too powerful to be anything close to being smooth jazz. Thank God. There is guitar wizardry on display here, and drum and bass wizardry too, but it is all in service to Pysz’s enthralling compositions” Walter Kolosky (Author of the books Power, Passion and Beauty and Follow Your Heart - John McLaughlin song by song)
