Tomasz Stanko Quintet
"So Nice"
Playing at: Birdland
(315 W. 44th St., Hell's Kitchen)
Get: Tickets (2 shows) | Directions

On his latest outing, Dark Eyes, Polish trumpeter and composer Tomasz Stanko introduces a new quintet, and the ensemble falls right in line with the record's dark intimacy. Album opener "So Nice" drifts with dusky ease, grounded by Stanko's tumbling, moody trumpet, and accentuated by pianist Alexi Tuomarila's melancholy and drummer Olavi Louhivuori's muted percussion. Tonight, Stanko and his quintet begin a five-night stint at Birdland.
