New Side to Stańko

Tomasz Stańko, one of Poland’s most inventive and acclaimed jazz performers, will give a concert entitled December Avenue at Warsaw’s Wielki Theater Dec. 5.

The concert takes its title from a new composition that Stańko has written especially for the event.

Stańko will share the stage with talented Polish female vocalist Anna Maria Jopek, who has worked with the likes of Pat Metheny, Bobby McFerrin, Nigel Kennedy and Richard Bona. Stańko’s other guests Dec. 5 will include Kroke, a Cracow-based klezmer band whose popularity extends far beyond Poland.

The concert will show a new side to Stańko as he flirts with South American beats, funk and ethno. The night promises to abound in surprises and improvisation. Warsaw audiences will also hear Kroke play tracks from their new album, entitled Ten.

In addition to the special guests from Poland, Stańko will play with a select group of foreign instrumentalists, such as guitarist Nelson Veras and drummers Zohar Fresco and Stefan Pasborg. They will be joined by Poland’s Dominik Wania (piano), Sławomir Kurkiewicz (double-bass) and Sławek Berny (percussion).

December Avenue will be held as part of the BMW Jazz Club project—a series of annual concerts in Warsaw. BMW Jazz Club is a joint project by the BMW Group Polska and top musicians from Poland and abroad that aims to welcome and mix different cultures and music styles. This winter, the project is in its ninth year.

BMW Jazz Club concerts have showcased a different prominent jazz musician every year since 2011. In previous years, the big names were Polish composer, violinist and sax player Michał Urbaniak, American vocalist and drummer Terri Lyne Carrington, and American vocalist Dianne Reeves.
