All Together Now!

During the first half of October, Cricoteka resounds with jazz. The Kraków Jazz Week starts with Seifert Jazz Days, followed by the Jazz Juniors festival. On the first three evenings, we will hear Maciej Obara’s quartet, Mateusz Smoczyński (violin) and Markus Stockhausen (trumpet) with their ensemble, and the trio Sonorismo founded by the percussionist Krzysztof Gradziuk. The Jazz Juniors festival opens on 12 October with a competition for young jazz ensembles; the event dates back to 1976. The following evenings take us on international musical journeys. To start with, we will hear improvisers from the Katowice-based quartet Ziemia and the Cuban brothers Jorge and Maikel Vistel, the Brazilian guitarist Nelson Veras and the Swiss percussionist Florian Arbenz with their project Conversation. They will be followed by a piano recital by Franciszek Raczkowski and the French saxophonist and clarinettist Matthieu Bordenave and his trio; events close with performances by two quartets, led by the saxophonist Robert Wypasek and the Norwegian guitarist Lage Lund respectively. (Bartosz Suchecki, Kraków Culture)
