Four years after the landmark album Wislawa, 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, presenting each player in the ensemble to best advantage.

"... Stanko's trademark atmospheric and cerebral style is fully intact ... strikingly balanced and tastefully performed by this well synergized quartet." - All About Jazz "Four Stars ... nobody holds a single, long-blown trumpet note like the Polish pioneer ... a wearily exhaled, soberly ironic, yet oddly awestruck sound that is unique in jazz ... a terrific successor to 2013's Wislawa, this is just as exquisite an exercise in haunting tone poetry, occasionally pierced by urgent avant-swing." - The Guardian
