The album Dokalski/Cieślak/Miarczyński/Steinbrich came out as the result of the meeting of four musicians who share interest in free jazz, improvisation, instant composing, and contemporary music.

The themes written by Olgierd and the compositions collectively improvised by the group create a coherent and interesting, yet uncompromising musical collage. Intense improvising is interwoven with minimalism, prepared instruments and sonorism go hand in hand with standard jazz instrumentation, free jazz rubs shoulders with film soundtrack themes, and classic jazz production includes elements of dub and industrial music.

The album is the realisation of Jacek Steinbrich’s project for which he was awarded a scholarship by the Mayor of Lublin City. The musicians met together in Lublin a number of times, played a few concerts and took part in the recording session.

The album was recorded in the following line-up:
Olgierd Dokalski – trumpet
Tadeusz Cieślak – alto and soprano saxophones
Jacek Steinbrich – double bass
Jakub Miarczyński – drums, percussion.
