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

Zbigniew Namysłowski, 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 Namysłowski 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 be an absolutely exciting and exceptional night of music, as well as extremely rare opportunity to hear a couple of tracks from legendary “Astigmatic” album performed live by a true jazz legend Zbigniew Namysłowski and his quintet!..

The line up: Zbigniew Namysłowski – alto and soprano saxophones, Jacek Namysłowski – trombone, Łukasz Ojdana – piano, Andrzej Święs – double bass and Patryk Dobosz – drums.
