Pink Freud is an improvising trio. Its music is fresh and modern; inspired by jazz, rock, folk, jungle, drum’n’bass etc.
Pink Freud demands audience’s sensitivity and concentration. Musicians play subtle tunes fully aware of their music.
In 1998, Gdansk was a center of yass music; trend impressing Poland with great influence in 90s. Pink Freud however turned its back to this tradition and recorded debut album “Zawijassy”. Album got enthusiastic reviews: “it’s refreshing our perception of polish jazz”, “Gdansk’s tradition of improvisation took step farther into more interesting and surprising tones”. PF’s concerts were even hotter. After one of them, someone started to call PF’s music “trance-jazz-dance”. Soon Pink Freud’s music became more and more different live than what was recorded on their album. They developed concept of playing trance way and album “Live in Jazzgot” shows band’s best music of that time. PF played with that Trans program more than 100 gigs in Poland, Germany, and Prague.
In 2003, Zen Posse Records issued “Sorry Music Polska”. On this album, Pink Freud presented very new style and reached for new metaphors to express their stories. Compositions are a base, a key to unlock feelings and emotions allowing musicians to build up their own improvisations, individual phrases and personalities. Using custom-built electronics along with bass, trumpet, vibraphone and drums PF produces unique, multicolored and multidimensional tunes. As a result, original, genuine style arises, easily
associated with film music, 70th and 80th jazz and acoustic productions of NinjaTune or JazzLand.
