From Improvised Communications:

On Friday, October 31st, the improvising quartet Magic will make its American debut at New Haven’s Firehouse 12. The group adds renowned Polish musician Mikolaj Trzaska to the well-documented rapport of the seminal free-jazz collective, Trio X, featuring multi-instrumentalist Joe McPhee, bassist Dominic Duval and drummer Jay Rosen, creating a new quartet with its own distinctive identity. Magic is on tour this fall, with support from the Polish Cultural Institute, to celebrate its forthcoming self-titled live release on the Not Two label.
