Presented in association with The Polish Cultural Institute.

TRIO X (Joe McPhee/Dominic Duval/Jay Rosen) returns to FIREHOUSE 12 in collaboration with visiting Polish virtuoso saxophonist/bass clarinetist and composer Mikolaj Trzaska as a totally new cooperative quartet known as MAGIC. Mikolaj Trzaska comes to the band fully formed having played in numerous different lineups and collaborations with Lester Bowie, Peter Brotzmann, Tomaz Stanko, John Tchikai and many others. In November of 2007, he joined Trio x as a guest for a Tour in Poland, but it quickly became evident that a new band had come to be, which was larger than the sum of its parts.

Now MAGIC comes to FIREHOUSE 12, New York City and Philadelphia for limited premier performances in anticipation of the soon to be released double CD of the same name, on the Not Two label. The live concert recording follows the 2006 releases INTIMATE CONVERSATIONS (Not Two) featuring the trio McPhee/Rosen/Trzaska and SONGS OF KRAKOW, a solo effort by Dominic Duval.

MAGIC is new, exciting, intuitive, intelligent, challenging, humorous, and full of discovery in the moment.
