Every Sunday, from September to December, we will see a new series of concerts in two Warsaw venues – BARdzo Bardzo and Jassmine.
As part of the JAZZ PO POLSKU project, 25 performances will be recorded with the participation of the audience and released in China and Korea. The series begins on the first weekend of September with concerts by Stanisław Słowiński Quintet, Imagination Quartet and Jakub Mizeracki Trio.
As part of the JAZZ PO POLSKU project “Live Session for China and Korea 2022” we will hear live bands such as the Tomasz Chyła Quintet, Joanna Duda Trio, Marcin Kociński Trio, Mateusz Smoczyński Trio, Marcin Pater Trio, Gniewomir Tomczyk Quartet and Piotr Schmidt Electric.
There will also be performances by the winners of the latest editions of the Cracow Jazz Juniors Festival: Franek Pospieszalski Trio, JAH Trio and Unleashed Cooperation. The series will end with a concert by the Warsaw Improvisers Orchestra, conducted by the British saxophonist Ray Dickaty.
All concerts will be recorded in audio and video format, digitally released in China and Korea, and also broadcast on Saturday nights by Radio Nowy Świat. The series will take place on Sunday evenings from the beginning of September to the end of December in BARdzo Bardzo club on Nowogrodzka 11 and Jassmine on Wilcza 73 in Warsaw.
The concerts registered as part of the project will be released on Asian streaming platforms, mostly unknown and not available in Europe. They include, among others, Chinese QQ Music, Net Easy Music, Ximalaya FM and Korean: Melon, Bugs, and VIBE.
“The aim of Live Sessions is to maintain the interest in Polish jazz on the largest and most interesting music market in the World and to propose new, alternative tools for promoting Polish culture in an endless lockdown. It is jazz, right after the works of Polish classics and writers, that is the most recognizable Polish cultural brand in Asia,” says Jakub Krzeszowski, the founder of JAZZ PO POLSKU.
