Tomasz Stanko New York Quartet: Wisława(ECM)

The great Polish trumpeter Tomasz Stanko, after decades spent imparting a classically influenced eastern European pensiveness to the sound of Miles Davis, has rediscovered his own kind of New York vibe – with a cutting-edge young American rhythm section, and unique Cuban pianist David Virelles. There’s plenty of Stanko’s familiar brooding tenderness, but episodes of fiery, time-stretching postbop worthy of the 1960s Miles quintet too.
