The number of live events is an effective distractin of late but I hope I'll manage to get some writing done these days. The following week's main event is undisputedly the duo concert with Matthew Shipp and Sabir Mateen, but it's not the only one worhty of the attention.
20.05 Shoshana at Alchemia
a dynamic alternative rock duo straight from Tel Aviw. It's gonna be LOUD!!!
21.05 Mikrokolektyw at Klub Re
Artur Majewski and Kuba Suchar in a acoustic trumpet - drums duo within an electronic environment. The very recent "Absent Minded" cd released by the prestigious Delmark records is gathering very good reviews, quite deservingly so.
22-23.05 Kuba Pluzek Trio at Piec'Art
A n elegantly swinging act with the verteran Artur Skolik on drums. The trio's debut cd couple of years back was a pleasant endeavour with somewhat retro charm.
22-26.05 BluesRoads Festival at Zaczek and other clubs
A blues marathon that, concerts, live music battles as well as blues history lectures. Check the complete program here.
23.05 Matthew Shipp / Sabire Mateen - SaMa at Alchemia (Krakow Autumn Jazz Preview)
One of the masters of modern piano on one hand and one of the most underrated reed (and especially clarinet) players. For those who can come to Krakow, this concerts is a must. The others will have to settle for the brilliant recording released on Not Two.
26.05 High Definition at Harris Piano Jazz Bar
The energetic quartet led by Piotr Orzechowski, a youthfull and modern vision of jazz. You can't not dig it.
