ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Jazz is a conversation.

Whether we envision ourselves in a Parisian cafe on a warm summer evening, strutting together down the streets of the city, or sharing the company of our friends around a campfire under the northern skies, our conversations ebb and flow like jazz. Topics grow organically, and the flow of thoughts and emotions can shift wildly from unity to discord, introspection to bombast, amusement to irritation, but all with respect for one another’s experience. Once in a while, a single voice may dominate the conversation, but true story-telling flourishes within a circle of friends. Every well-crafted joke invites a reaction from the group. All good soapbox rants rise to rhetorical heights with the challenge of engaging the audience. Points are made, counterpoints are played and, just as they began, each topic naturally concludes with everyone having had the opportunity to participate and the respect to listen.

Some of the musical conversations on this album are influenced by landscape, passion, inspiration, and family. When I listen, I feel that I’ve been invited to the table with a group of friends, contributing their individuality, their voices, their ideas, and communicating on a level that burns brightly with positive energy and brings every conversation to life.

Bartosz Hadala is an original. His light touch, his ability to engage, and his ever-present joy at just being a part of the moment with those around him is an absolute delight. His compositions introduce themes which are universally accessible yet can turn on a dime without distracting the listener. As with the best delivery, his musical timing is precise. His unique voice brings originality without pretence. The optimism in his melodies - even the most poignant of ballads - shines through. All of this is expressed in the compositions on this album and brought to life through the contributions of the incredible musicians around him. They laugh, challenge, they urge one another on, introduce ideas, react, and they bring their best selves. We may not speak their language as fluently, but we are invited to share the moment as friends. While the melodies are indeed accessible, the individual voices challenge us to lean in and be more present as a party to the moment.

When we sit with friends and peers, we may experience a level of comfort that transcends the mechanics of dialogue. We are accepted for ourselves and are invited to share that moment. We riff and we solo. We support and we challenge. And through it all, I can imagine Bartosz, grinning from ear to ear, loving each moment.

This album is a conversation.
