Band of three friends – alumni of the Faculty of Jazz and Popular Music of Karol Szymanowski Academy of Music in Katowice, Poland. The idea of forming the band was born on initiative of a vibraphonist – Marcin Pater.
Marcin Pater – vibraphone/composer
Mateusz Szewczyk – double-bass/electric bass
Adam Wajdzik – drums
Their music is primarily leader’s compositions, which oscillate around widely understood jazz. It can be characterized by light and lilting melodies played by vibraphone which is leading the band. The instrument give them unique and original sound which makes the band unconventional.
In December 2019 they released their debut album “Nothing But Trouble” with guitar player Jakub Mizeracki as a guest in three compositions. The sound with a vibraphone and electric guitar can be define more like jazz-rock and without they sound gently and clean.
Marcin Pater Trio has won Grand Prix of Jazz Juniors Contest in 2018 in Cracow, Poland. Also they have won both the first prize as well as the best composition for piece titled “Take Down” on Sibiu Jazz Contest in Sibiu, Romania.
