Concert series Tuesday Jazz Club

Tuesday Jazz Club

The popularity Tuesday Jazz Club saw for the past two seasons, with concerts drawing more than full house, shows that the kind of music this concert series proposes is very much in demand. It demonstrates that, contrary to popular opinion, jazz is not a difficult music to enjoy, or one that requires specific knowledge and an experienced ear.

The 2016/ 2017 season promises a rich programme reflecting the three distinctive trends that dominate in modern jazz. Acoustic jazz artists will include: Jan „Ptaszyn” Wróblewski (who celebrated his 80th birthday in 2016), Leszek Żądło, once an avant-garde musician who has now moved into the mainstream, saxophonist Piotr Baron, who continues the Coltrane tradition, and New Bone, a band that plays post-bop. We will also hear various kinds of jazz-rock by Schmidt Electric (featuring guest guitarist Apostolis Anthimos) and the band Funk de Nite. Jazz fused with ethnic elements will be represented by vocalists Marita Albán Juárez, Krystyna Stańko and Ceumar.

The series repertoire includes also interesting performances by mentors and outstanding artists of the Institute of Jazz of the Karol Szymanowski Academy of Music in Katowice:  Piotr Wojtasik, Bernard Maseli, Grzegorz Nagórski, Jerzy Jarosik, Paweł Tomaszewski, Michał Barański and Adam Buczek. Their art and teaching have to a large extent contributed to the status Polish jazz enjoys in Poland and abroad.

Finally, guest artists from abroad. Tuesday nights at the NOSPR will see some of the world’s top musicians: Dave Liebman, a former Miles Davis partner, for a long time recognised as a giant of the soprano saxophone (he will play with the Swiss trio Vein), John Abercrombie, a legend of jazz guitar, and pianist Alan Broadbent, winner of two Grammy Awards. We will also hear Till Brönner, a popular trumpet player from Germany, who will play in a duo with Władysław „Adzik” Sendecki, and pianist Mike del Ferro from the Netherlands.

We hope that this highly diverse repertoire and the magic of great names will once again draw large numbers of music lovers. [Bogdan Chmura]
