LINER NOTES FOR "UnCool" TRIO RECORDING

This is a truly beautiful recording. I love the way Adomas creates deep heartfelt moods with his wonderful compositions and improvisations. Also its truly a trio cd, it sounds like a BAND, the bass and drums work very well to support the piano at all times, I felt the music deeply ,and it touched my heart. One important consideration I always have when listening to new music is, DO I BELIEVE THE EMOTION BEHIND THE PLAYING?? IS IT SINCERE AND AUTHENTIC ? Well im happy to say for this cd the answer is YES !!

There are many beautiful quiet intimate musical moments that you will love. bass and drums add much to the tonal landscape and Stephen has some great ompositions of his own here.

All in all I would recommend this recording without reservation, its not just another jazz piano trio cd, but a very thoughtful and beautiful collection of music for piano bass and drums. ENJOY !!

He has a beautiful touch and great tone from the piano a deep resonant sound, he is very EXPRESSIVE like a mofo!! I can FEEL HIM and the most important thing is that I BELIEVE THE EMOTION BEHIND ALL HIS PLAYING it is very sincere and he touched my heart many times. He has gone through many bad and good times and you can hear it in his improvisations and compositions. I really like his compositions very much. He builds his solos very well and his sense of development is excellent, he takes his time, its great !!
RICHIE BEIRACH, october 2022 

UnCool ist der Covername und eigentlische Botschaft dieser Musik.Der Gedanke dahinter ist, darauf hinzuweisen, dass wir in einer musikalischen und auch kulturellen Epoche leben, in dem der amerikanische Begriff „COOL“ als Markenzeichen dieser Epoche gesehen wird. Mein Gefühl ist, dass dies nur einen globalen Wunsch ausdrückt, die Tiefe der eigenen persönlischen Gefühle hinter diesem Begriff wie hinter einem Vorwand zu verbergen. Das spricht nicht umbedingt vom Mut sich zu öffnen, sondern deutet viel mehr auf einen globalen Verunsicherung.Die wahre Kommunikation zwischenmenschlischer Ebene durch Musik oder andere Kunstformen ist damit auf eine symbolistische Ebene eingeschränkt. Mit diesem Album möchte ich einen Statement geben: Die Musik ist offen. Sie ist UnCool.
ADOMAS REKASIUS 

Diese Musik hat heilende Kräfte. Sie ist voll aufgeladen mit Hoffnung und Wärme. „UnCool“, ein Titel einer der Eigenkompositionen von Rekašius, steht quasi für das Konzept der Band. Intensiv, risikobereit und auf der Suche nach musikalischer Tiefe, agiert dieses Trio mit äusserster Hingabe. …einfach wirken lassen!
THOMAS DANZEISEN, kleine Insel 

Ausgehend von elegisch lyrischer Tondichtung und jazzig rhythmischer Finesse, kumuliert das Trio zu ekstatischer Improvisation mit Pop-Apeal. Europäischer Jazz trifft Arnold Schönbergs "Verklärte Nacht".
