JAZZ PO POLSKU returns to the JASSMINE club after the well-received series “Live Sessions For China & Korea 2022”. From September to December last year, musicians recorded “live” concerts with the participation of the Warsaw audience before releasing the recording in Asia. During the coming months, every Sunday evening at JASSMINE, guests will again be able to see Polish artists again, as well as guests from abroad, who will present themselves as part of the “Warsaw Live Sessions” project. The cycle will feature as many as 50 concerts over the next three years.
In 2023, leading artists of the Polish jazz scene will feature, including the winners of the Fryderyk Award – Piotr Damasiewicz, Nikola Kołodziejczyk, Mateusz Smoczyński, and Dominik Wania. There will also be performances by representatives of the more contemporary scene, Follow Dices, Klawo, Piotr Matusik Trio, Siema Ziemia, Sebastian Zawadzki Trio, as well as winners of one of the oldest jazz festivals in Poland – Jazz Juniors Festival: Ziemia and Kuba Banaszek Quartet.
Special guests, meanwhile, will include guitarist Mike Stern, trumpeter Freddie Hendrix, and the Ukrainian duo Misha Kalinin and Roksana Smirnova.
“An important element of the Warsaw edition is supporting the local scene, as well as developing international cooperation and integrating creative circles from other countries” says Jakub Krzeszowski, creator of the JAZZ PO POLSKU project. “For the needs of the project, the artists will also create works inspired by Warsaw.”
