Knee-Deep In Heaven

by Janusz Prusinowski Trio

The third in-a-row ablum of renown Polish avantgarde Trio. Their unique style is distilled from their informed reinterpretations of central Poland's village music. They bring the mazurka—sung, played, danced, and improvised—to a new, youthful audience.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
„What struck me right away about this music was its amazing ability to mix the feel and power of village dance music with the personal contemporary sensibilities of the players.” — Michal Shapiro (Huffington Post 2012)

Wild music from the heart of Poland!
Traditional, grounded music with an archaic and a modern, even vanguard sound at the same time – is it possible?
Proof is supplied by the new album of the Janusz Prusinowski trio (a quintet of course): Wild, shrill, polyrhythmic, unheard tones in times of musical randomness, melodies swinging round in circles and appearing to be in league with the devil.
Who would have thought that in the middle of Europe music is made that can't deny its consanguinity with the age-old trance music styles from Africa and Asia? What we hear is disturbing, maddish dance music, contemplative, reposing, dignified at the same time.
Being more than Polish folk music this album manages to keep a hard-line traditional style while sounding open and progressive. This way, regional music can send out rays, become global und universal. “Knee-deep in Heaven” - what a fitting and meaningful name for this album.
