A double double bass recommendation for the next few days in Krakow - Marcin Oles and Joelle Leandre

A very quick update and a last minute suggestion. All who don't feel too under the weather should get up and check Piec'ART for Marcin Oles solo concert.

02.10 Marcin Oles - Basso-Nova at Piec'ART
The bass half of a rhythm section that had a huge impact on the beginnings of modern polish free jazz scene. Marcin Oles has a beautiful sound and a is an artist of clear vision. Catch it if you still can. Concerts in Piec start only at 9.30 PM so you still have a chance.

05.10 Joelle Leandre at Alchemia (Krakow Autumn Jazz Festival)
No introduction needed I hope. Among the most incredible visionaries of double bass, both in improvised and composed music (designated performer of pieces by John Cage or Giacinto Scelsi). One is usually cautious when it comes to a double bass recital and they're not that common but to  have a chance to see two in the distance of few days is great. I daresay this is the most important night of the whole Atumn Festival.

BTW. Polish readers may check Jazzarium for a note about the first two concerts of the festival.
