The Take 6 sextet are one of the world's most acclaimed vocal groups. They are coming to Poland again to give a concert at the Kongresowa Hall in Warsaw Oct. 30. Take 6 have been around for two decades, over which time they have won 10 Grammy awards and released over a dozen albums, working with stars including Quincy Jones, Stevie Wonder and Whitney Houston.

Take 6 comprises six male singers: Mark Kibble, Claude V. McKnight III, Dr. Cedric Dent, David Thomas, Alvin Chea and Joey Kibble. They move between different music styles, from soul and gospel to R&B and pop to jazz. During the Warsaw concert, Take 6 will perform their greatest hits and famous jazz standards.

Take 6 started their career performing traditional gospel songs. Their debut, eponymous album came out in 1988 on the Warner Brothers label and in the years that followed, Take 6 became a hit at the largest jazz festivals around the world. In 2007, they were the stars of the Jazz Jamboree Festival in Warsaw, sharing the spotlight with another superb vocal group, The Manhattan Transfer.

All of the group's subsequent albums, So Much To Say (1990), He Is Christmas 1991), Join The Band (1994), Brothers (1996), So Cool (1998), We Wish You A Merry Christmas (1999), Beautiful World (2002) and Feels Good (2006), went gold and platinum and won numerous awards.

On their latest album, The Standard from 2008, Take 6 reach for jazz standards such as "Someone To Watch Over Me," "What's Going On," "Straighten Up And Fly Right," "Seven Steps To Heaven" and "Windmills Of Your Mind." One of the best tracks, entitled "A-Tisket," features the voice of Ella Fitzgerald, using original recordings from 1938. Alongside the sextet, the album features vocal contributions from such great jazz performers as George Benson, Al Jarreau, Jon Hendricks, Roy Hargrove, Till Brönner and R&B stars Aaron Neville and Brian McKnight.
