The Beat Freaks
Is there a perfect recipe for a successful jazz record? Apparently, it can be a neat balance between a well-formed composition and a mature improvisation. If indeed it is, then I’m inclined to believe strongly in the musical proposal by guitarist Michał Starkiewicz and his project The Beat Freaks. I find it primarily as a very attractive vesrion of the proverbial “golden mean”, where the main role is played by the balance and artistic competence of the artists. This balance is equally due to Starkiewicz and his excellent companions – classy and pugnacious saxophonist Tomasz Licak, both restraint and frivolous bassist Pawel Grzesiuk and holding everything professionally in rhythm, drummer Radek Wośko. Consequently, we are confronted with an extremely coherent, unpretentious musical concept, devoid of unnecessary chaos and oriented towards mutual understanding. And that’s about it.
