Must watch | Dive into Poland’s best acts with Marek Pospieszalski and Kuba Wiecek trio

From 5 to 13 December 2020, the Periscope organised a week-long meeting of 7 European cities. Involved in the Jazz Connective project for 2 years, the Périscope hosted, in December 2020, the last stage of this cooperation project between artists, actors and audiences from the jazz and improvised music scenes. Each evening, artists from one city met and performed in a recorded or live streamed performance.

International Jazz Platform takes control of this carte blanche dedicated to Łódź to broadcast a solo concert by saxophonist Marek Pospieszalski presented by the artist himself. They add to this a live performance by the Kuba Więcek trio preceded by a special meeting with the audience. Shows shot in Warsaw especially for Jazz Connective de Lyon.

Kuba Wiecek trio

According to Downbeat Magazine he is one of the 25 musicians with a potential to shape the jazz music in the future.

Kuba Więcek aspires to become the number one youngest generation of the Polish jazz scene. His creativity and activity on the jazz music in the country and abroad (including Europe, USA, South America, Japan) are dizzy. Recordings (counting with this year a total of 20 CDs!) it seems that the young saxophonist is an example of a completely new way (than we have been used to so far) practiced artistic profession.  Tomasz Szachowski Jazzforum
