Zbigniew Namyslowski Quintet…play music of Namyslowski and Komeda

This concert is a part of the series of events 'Tomasz Furmanek invites…'

Zbigniew Namyslowski, a phenomenal saxophonist and composer, is an icon of Polish jazz and the first Polish musician who ever recorded an album in the Western Europe (Lola for Decca, 1964). He is an unsurpassed master of Polish jazz dialect, who managed to work out an original musical language, understood both by Polish and world jazz audiences.

In 1965, Krzysztof Komeda invited him to record the Astigmatic album, widely regarded as one of the milestones in the history of jazz music. On the night of 7th December at Jazz Café Posk Namyslowski will play both his most famous originals, like 'Kuyaviak goes Funky' or 'Jasmine Lady'- just to name a few, as well as selected compositions of Krzysztof Komeda, to commemorate 50th anniversary of Komeda's tragic death – this will include an extremely rare opportunity to hear live a couple of tracks from legendary 'Astigmatic' album.

Zbigniew Namyslowski recorded nearly 30 original records, of which many were published abroad. Albums such as 'Winobranie' (1973) and 'Kuyaviak goes Funky' (1975) became a huge jazz hits in Poland and were voted one of the best records of all times in Polish jazz. In 1980 he recorded the first album his funk jazz Air Condition band: 'Follow Your Kite'. The band was hugely popular, performing a lot in Poland and Europe.

Constantly - from the beginning of his career to the present day - Zbigniew Namyslowski stays at the forefront of the most outstanding Polish jazz musicians, he is a laureate of many Fryderyk music awards, and in 2014 and 2015 he was awarded the title of the alto saxophonist of the year in the Jazz Top poll of the Jazz Forum monthly.
