Lublin Jazz: Von Schultz / Vazquez / Wallace trio

Don’t miss the next concert of the Lublin Jazz series, in which we present the most interesting phenomena in contemporary jazz and improvised music at the Centre for Culture in Lublin!

Founded in April 2023 the trio of drummer Marcelo Von Schultz, bassist Pablo Vazquez, and pianist Eli Wallace instantly ignited Prez Jazz in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Immediately they discovered a symbiotic musical connection, deftly navigating between intricate rhythmic pockets, bombastic noisy layers, saccharine melodicism, and subtle spaces involving overtones produced on their respective instruments.

The group shifts from collective playing to allowing each individual to shine in soloistic passages. The trio highlights this non-hierarchical group dynamic by giving each player the space to instigate new musical ideas that the group latches onto and carries to new places. During this tour they will bring this kinetic group sound to every performance, displaying interconnectedness as an ensemble while simultaneously featuring each individual. Below are videos from their first performance and biographies
of each player.

Marcelo Von Schultz (Argentina, 1976) musician, drummer and educator. Coming from the jazz and creative music scene of the west of Buenos Aires (Derviche, Doña María, Antü).

Eli Wallace is a pianist, improviser, and composer who resides in Brooklyn, NY, leading his own projects, collaborating with other like-minded artists, and co-curating the interdisciplinary performance series Invocation. His work as a pianist displays his vast milieu of experiences from classical, jazz, and free improvisation, incorporating elaborate piano preparations that John Lewis
(The Guardian) says is “…pushing the boundaries of the prepared piano.” His compositions employ notational strategies to broaden how musicians produce sound and the ways in which they interact. Over the past decade, he has appeared on dozens of albums and performed at esteemed venues such as The Stone, New York, NY, Roulette, Brooklyn, NY, Mizzou International Composers Festival, Columbia, MI, and Experimental Sound Studio, Chicago, IL.
