LATEST NEWS (updated January 2017) For information about my latest performances, clinics, and upcoming projects, please visit my Facebook page at www.facebook.com/pavelwlosok. My newest and first solo jazz piano album entitled "Respectfully Yours" is scheduled for a release later this year and pays homage to my favorite jazz composers including Duke Ellington, Thelonious Monk, Bill Evans, Chick Corea and Wayne Shorter among others. This album has an undeniable vintage analog sound quality to it given its production concept (as explained in the video presentation below). Feel free to preview it here:

PHOTOGRAPHY NEWS Most of my latest sets can be found on my Flickr pages HERE. Since upgrading to Nikon D800 and printer to CANON pixma series with eight separate inks, I've been very happy with my current setup. My favorite lenses remain to be fully manual Voigtlander 125m f2.5 APO, Nikon 85mm f1.4 AF-S, and Zeiss 25mm f2.8 ZF.
RECORDING ARTS NEWS I've been working on a tape mix of my studio quartet album featuring Rick Margitza on tenor sax, Mike McGuirk on acoustic bass, and Andrew Swift on drums. I'm very excited about this project. The guys played beautifully and the music ideas were flowing naturally. Very inspiring project to be part of. This should be released sometimes late 2017, early 2018 with a CD release tour of Central Europe pending in March/April 2018.
I've tracked and mixed to tape Bill Molenhof's jazz and latin drumming masterclass at WCU. I think I finally figured out the best way to record drums in the Coulter recital hall at my workplace. Beyerdynamic ribbon mics M130 and M160 in a mid-side setup configuration worked their magic on drum overheads...
Looking forward to teaming up with my colleague and our studio engineer Dan Gonko during another album recording at CAT studios on our campus this coming April. This project is still in its early stages of development, however I can tell you that it will feature an outstanding female vocalist as well as a world-class drummer. Stay tuned for more info...
