Maestro Trytony biography
MAESTRO TRYTONY is Polish band, having its roots in TRYTONY band, founded still in 1991. TRYTONY's founder was Polish known guitarist and composer Tomasz Gwincinski (ex - MAZZOLL & ARHYTHMIC PERFECTION). Band recorded two albums as trio (Tańce bydgoskie (1991) and Zarys matematyki niewinnej - koncert w Mózgu (1995)).

Then Tomasz Gwincinski became more interested in classic music, wrote music for " King Ubu" play for Polish Thetre in Bydgoszcz (Teatrz Polski w Bydgoszczy). As a result of such changes, he re-founded his band under the name MAESTRO TRYTONY with new line-up: Renata Suchodolska (viola), Tomasz Pawlicki (flute, keyboard), Rafał Gorzycki (percussion), Tomasz "Święty" Hesse (bass). In 1997 new band recorded their debut Enoptronia (on Mózg Production).

Their second album " Heart Of Gold" was released in 2004 only. Music there is strongly influenced by chamber avant and neo-classic (Ives,Strawiński, Frith and Zorn) and Art Zoyd and Universe Zero as well. Because of death of original bassist Tomasz Hesse , Patryk Weclawek plays bass on this album.

4 stars Second and last to time (2010) this Polish avant chamber prog band's album is a bit different from their debut.

Three first compositions are very serious chamber/neo-classic pieces, almost without any traces of rock,jazz or avant. So it's no strange that listener could feel a bit ... disappointed there. Don't worry - it's just a beginning!

" Snowboarding Alchemysta " is great very jazzy piece, with complex drumming and slight chamber feeling in nuances. " Heart Of Gold" is melancholic soulful down tempo melody with flute soloing, and it sounds as soundtrack of some movie from late 60-s.

"Tax Collector" is short piece of dissonant piano sounds, and soon it changes to melodic bass and drums jazzy pulsation with melancholic reeds over the top. Plus crying electric guitar and even some nu jazz elements - "Magic Tiara Part 1". " .. Part 2" is real jazz fusion, led by guitar, which continues by post-bop piano jazz.

" Nanotechnology" starts with chaotic dissonant sounds, but very soon continues as just guitar led jazz fusion again. Short " Epilogue" is just a signature of all instruments participated on album in a form of chamber and chaotic miniature.

All album is full of soft melancholic melodies, so usual for Polish music. Really nice recording - accessible and clever, tasteful and not boring.

4 stars Many fans think there are not world-class chamber avant bands in Eastern Europe. They are wrong - there are such bands. At least- few, and one of them is Polish Maestro Trytony for sure.

Band grew up from early 90-s rock band Trytony, led by one of most capable Polish rock guitarist Tomasz Gwincinski. In late 90-s Tomasz Gwincinski found his interest to classic music, started to write music for theatre, and as a result re-built his old rock band in new line up, combining his guitar abilities with classically trained cellist Renata Suchodolska, flautist/keyboardist Tomasz Pawlicki and new rhythm section.

New band started playing chamber mix of avant jazz, neo-classic and fusion. On this their debut album listener can hear what high-class musicians they are! Common atmosphere is very chamber, in moments listener can feel as being on neo-classic concert, but in a few minutes this illusion will be exploded by scratching electric guitar attacks. Guest brass section is very chamber as well, but rhythm section is quite jazzy. Interetsing, that all this different components successfully build very monolith musical construction.

I can strongly recommend this "Polish best kept secret" to any Art Zoyd or Universe Zero fan - you wouldn't be disappointed! BTW, band's second (and last to time) album is even more chamber and dark!

My rating is 4+!

Thanks to snobb for the artist addition.
