Krakow's Jazz Juniors continues and there plenty of other events of musical interest, including yet another Jazz Festival - Lublin invites you in with a very strong program. I guess one needs to inhale as much as possible to be ready for winter sleep.
02.12. Jazz Juniors Showcase at Rotunda
Winners of competion held during the weekend. As there's plenty of young talent around one might hope that the selected bands will play good.
02.12. Jam Session at Harris Piano Jazz Bar
Krakow's youth, and sort of club's residents when it comes to jam session - Bartek Prucnal, Cyprian Baszczynski, Mateusz Gaweda, Piotr Poludniak i Dawid Fortuna will welcome fellow musicians for a jam after Jazz Juniors performance.
03.12 Deux Boules Vanille at Alchemia
For something completely different - and indie music drummer's duo. Seems weird and lot of fun.
04.12. N.S.I. Quartet at Rotunda
The winner of last year Jazz Juniors competion will play a concert to celebrate the release of their debut cd. Immaginative and energetic modern mainstream.
04.12. Bester Quartet "The Golden Land" at Alchemia
Band famous for its collaboration with Zorn's Tzadik label. Subtle and refined music that draws from jewish heritage, jazz, classical and world traditions.
05.12. Chlopcy Kontra Basia at Zaczek
I have appreciated this trio a few times on the blog, their jazzy take on folk music has now many followers (I wish some credit could go for the blog but I'm afraid the power of TV is much bigger). They finally have released their long overdue debut cd.
05-08.12. Lublin Jazz Fesival.
The most alluring part of the festival's program is performance by the spectacle Angles but there are other attractions as well including performances by Marilyn Mazur Quartet, Samuel Blaser trio or polish young artists such as Piotr Damasiewicz, Maciej Obara or Maciej Trifonidis. Check the fesival's website for more info.
08.12. The World Famous Glenn Miller Orchestra at Auditorium Maximum
If you're a swing fan I guess this might be get you as close to the real thing as possible without actual time-travel machine.
