Warsaw Summer Jazz Days, one of the biggest jazz festivals in Poland, is in progress in Warsaw.

After an opening concert by the World Saxophone Quartet of New York City July 1, sax player John Zorn will perform together with Anthony Braxton and Bill Laswell at Kongresowa Hall July 3. Other performers that day will include The Dreamers, a band led by guitarist Mark Ribot.

On the last day of the festival, July 8, the Tymański Brass Ensemble will perform together with special guest Dave Douglas, and U.S. big-band leader Maria Schneider will take to the stage along with the 18-member Krzysztof Herdzin Orchestra of Poland. At the end of the evening, Polish jazz musician Włodek Pawlik will play with American trumpeter Randy Brecker and the Podlaska Symphony Orchestra from the eastern Polish city of Białystok.
