The meeting of Polish trumpeter Tomasz Stańko – a seminal figure in European jazz since the 1960s – and the cutting-edge New York trio of stellar pianist David Virelles, bassist Reuben Rogers and drummer Gerald Cleaver, produces music that combines darkly atmospheric soundscapes and surging bursts of rhythm, re-visiting London following the release of a brand new ECM recording, December Avenue.
