The fluidity, as well as the evidence of Maciej Obara’s saxophone must not significantly hide the depth of his music. With Unloved, the Polish saxophonist pens a ninth album that is at first glance very lyrical but that first and foremost leans on the exchanges with the other musicians from his quartet: the pianist Dominik Wania, the bass player Ole Morten Vågan and the drummer Gard Nilssen. In the Rainbow Studio in Oslo where they shut themselves away in January 2017 with producer Manfred Eicher, the four men have serenely juggled with space and silences. Aside from the eponymous title written by the great Krysztof Komeda for the movie from Janusz Nasfeter bearing the same name, all the themes from this disc are penned by Obara. Themes that the saxophonist describes as being only outlines from which the sound of the quartet expresses itself in complete freedom. “My friends are incredible improvisers. I love their ability to evolve in complete freedom in open spaces and the way in which they sculpt them while giving them the colors I have in mind. It’s a bit like composing in real time.”
