The first half of the Jazz in the Old Town summer festival includes concerts by Djabe, String Connection, the Apostolis Anthimos Trio & Tomasz Szukalski and Bryan Corbett &Funk de Nite.

Djabe, a Hungarian jazz band that gets the most invitations to international festivals of all Hungarian groups, will kick off the festival July 4 with its jazz/world/fusion project. Djabe's performances often feature well-known musicians such as Ben Castle, Steve Hackett and John Nugent.

The following Saturday will see a performance by the legendary Polish band String Connection with a lineup of Krzesimir Dębski (violin; composer), Andrzej Olejniczak (saxophone), Krzysztof ¦cierański (guitar), Janusz Skowron (piano; composer) and Krzysztof Przybyłowicz (drums). Formed in the 1980s, the band has recorded nine albums, including two released abroad.

On July 18, guitar and saxophone virtuosos Apostolis Anthimos and Tomasz Szukalski will perform in a joint project. Apostolis is well known mainly from his performances with rock group SBB, one of the most important bands in the history of Polish rock music.

Bryan Corbett, a British trumpet star and musician from the legendary Us3, will appear in the Old Town Square on the last Saturday of July together with Funk de Nite, one of the best Polish funk and jazz groups, to promote their joint album Funky Roads.
