Tomasz Stańko, one of the best known Polish jazz musicians, will play a concert at Warsaw's Fabryka Trzciny arts center Feb. 1 with Andrzej Smolik, a respected composer and producer of numerous pop projects. Together they plan to deliver a fine blend of classic jazz standards and contemporary electronic music.

Entitled Projekt Peyotl, the concert will seek to refresh an album Stańko originally recorded in the 1980s with the Freelectronic band. The Peyotl album holds a special place in Stańko's discography. Inspired by American rap from the late 1980s, Stańko started pursuing his own ways to combine words and music. The album refers to Narkotyki. Niemyte dusze (Drugs: Unwashed Souls), a work by Polish writer and playwright Stanisław Ignacy Witkiewicz, known as Witkacy, who experimented with drugs.

Stańko and Smolik will team up on stage with a group of young Polish musicians, including Marcin Ułanowski on drums, Krzysztof Pacan on bass, and Robert Cichy on guitar.

Feb. 1, 8 p.m.
Fabryka Trzciny, 14 Otwocka St.
