A Polish quartet performing instrumental rock music enhanced by the tenderness of jazz,dimmed with psychedelic mist, distored with tensions of underground. Music built on twisted riffs, seducing pulsations, intriguing improvisations, fictitious images, magical stories. Music of the third ear.
Audio Cave, CD, 2020
The album contains a selected compilation of Tatvamasi's recordings from 2018-2019. The material features some unusual artists who were our guests during a series of meetings and concerts I organized under the name of the Third Ear Music. The seven tracks, or rather their sketches, were an invitation to create, a hint, a beginning of a journey. The journey where experiment and improvisation are equivalent to composition. The journey understood as the art of experiencing the elusive and non-obvious events. Out of four sessions created in vapours of outstanding sounds and moments frozen in time I have chosen seven compositions that, for me, are the path to discover the Third Ear, to discover the world by means of music.

"Tatvamasi is yet another iconoclastic, genre-hopping outfit. With the versatile talents of tenor. The group ploughs new musical furrows on Parts of the Entirety, framing its compositions around Slavic folk rhythms and melodic ornaments delivered with a rock attitude..." ... by Tom Greenland / The New York City Jazz Records
"Tatvamasi deals out all of modern jazz's best traits - playful performances, major/minor key ambivalence, asymmetric song shapes and the occasional art of the unlikely melody. It's the sound of things coming together. Better than The A-Team..." ... by John Garrat / Popmatters
"Tatvamasi is very much in line with some of my other favorite recent releases (Dylan Ryan, Jason Robinson) as well as things from the past (Kilgore Trout, Stinkhorn). All in all, an outstanding set of music, and one I'm sure to revisit for years to come." ... by John Davis / Expose
"Every playing of the album opens new door. It becomes more and more interesting and clearer than at the first sight. I think that Tatvamasi commences to create its own musical genre and I am looking foward with great pleasure to their further steps..." ... by Alicja Cieloch / 5kilokultury.pl
