Polish-American Jazz

American jazz trumpeter Michael “Patches” Stewart has released a new album entitled On Fire that was recorded jointly with Polish musicians.

Polish composer, bassist and multi-instrumentalist Robert Kubiszyn has contributed four tracks to the album, including the evocative “Northern Star.” Kubiszyn composed half the songs, while the rest were written by American musicians, including one co-written by Stewart.

Other tracks on the album include “Child in Me,” one of the last compositions written by New York-based pianist Donald Blackman. Stewart’s new music is engaging, warm and easy to listen to.

Hailing from New Orleans, Stewart has worked with the likes of Quincy Jones, George Duke, Marcus Miller, Earth Wind & Fire, Lenny White and Al Jarreau. He says he is better known in Europe than in the United States. “I work with bands in Germany, Slovakia, Russia and Belarus,” Stewart has said. “Since I’ve been in Poland, I hooked up with saxophonist Henryk Mi¶kiewicz as a guest in his band Full Drive... That gave me the idea to do a CD with Polish and American musicians—uniting two musical worlds and blurring the lines—without boundaries.” Working on the album, Stewart also managed to rope in Kenny Garrett for a quick recording session while Garrett was in Europe to give a concert.
