Quantum Trio Quantum Trio

Polish-Chilean trio founded in 2012 in Rotterdam. The name is not accidental, clearly resonating in the group’s compositions. Component, inseparable and equivalent elements: Michał Jan Ciesielski (saxophones), Kamil Zawiślak (piano), Luis Mora Matus (drums). The Quantum Trio was born out of friendship, youthful dreams and musical explorations.

Its members met at the conservatory of Codarts Rotterdam – University for the Arts – a university where music from different parts of the world and different cultures meet. This includes the diversity and openness, as well as great lecturers, that attract students from various parts of the world. The three musicians began to meet and improvise to form a band in 2012.

Despite the distance operation – between Rotterdam and Gdansk, the team withstood the test of time and has been playing in an unchanged composition for years. It was and is possible not only thanks to the determination of the musicians, but above all, friendship, which from the beginning was the foundation of the group. It is it’s constant pretext to meet and spend time together creatively.

Quantum Trio is also different in terms of the instrumental composition from other bands. The jazz trio without bass is still a rare phenomenon. It is also a kind of challenge when it comes to the roles of individual musicians as well as the form of created compositions.

And the name? It refers to the theory of quantum mechanics and is associated with both musical and non- musical fascinations of the band members. Quantum mechanics is a quite fresh and constantly evolving field of science, which is why it is so inspiring. It is also a field whose principle is uncertainty and the fact that it can not be fully described, at least the language of science that we know today.

”Red Fog is more electrifying evidence of the Quantum Trio's bottomless imagination about its possibilities” Geno Thackara, All About Jazz

“Most importantly, for all its trickery, Duality remains as appealing as it is brainy. Those who don’t want to pick apart the compositional quirks can simply enjoy the sound of three imaginative players refusing to stay static. The leap they take here is an ambitious success, playfully reflecting a range of intriguing possibilities, then collapsing them into something both challenging and fun.” Geno Thackara, All About Jazz

“Although the music is beautifully executed, it is the superb compositions that turn this album into a first class musical experience

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.
