Warsaw, Wrocław, Łódź. Polish-Danish jazz, Part II
Celebrating 10 years of Polish-Danish jazz
In the last 10 years a large group of young Poles have pursued their studies at jazz departments of Danish music conservatories in Esbjerg, Odense and Copenhagen. It was there they met their Danish colleagues, with whom they have formed bands and now tour, release albums and win musical awards.
The result of the mutual inspiration and excellent cooperation is a good mix of Scandinavian jazz and Polish musical tradition. Tomasz Licak, Tomasz Dąbrowski, Maciej Kądziela and Radek Wośko are the leaders of the most recognized Polish-Danish bands. They all performed at this year’s Copenhagen Jazz Festival as the first part of their Denmark/Poland musical tour, where they a.o. played a concert inspired by music of the Polish composer Krzysztof Komeda.
TOM Trio, K.R.A.N., Radek Wosko’s Atlantic Quartet and Maciej Kadziela’s Taste of the World will now play in Poland, at the renowned jazz festival Jazztopad in Wrocław, in the recently reactivated famous jazz club Akwarium in Warsaw and in the cosy jazz club KIJ in Łódź.
