Four years after the landmark album Wislawa, the great Polish trumpeter Tomasz Stanko’s New York Quartet returns with another masterful recording, December Avenue.  Always an insightful bandleader, Stanko here encourages spirited improvisation to flower around his characteristically melancholic and soulful themes, and all players are presented to best advantage.

New band member Reuben Rogers, originally from the Virgin Islands and perhaps best-known for his work with Charles Lloyd, is a splendid addition to the team, establishing a profound understanding  with Cuban-born pianist David Virelles and Detroit drummer Gerald Cleaver.
