Imagination Quartet, a contemporary jazz group consisting of young and talented Polish musicians, will play at Haka Bar July 17 as part of the Haka Live Music series of Thursday concerts.
Imagination Quartet is an expressive music project launched in 2009. Though it clearly relies on classic jazz esthetics, it does not let itself be trapped in music standards and common expectations.
Drawing extensively on improvised, experimental music Imagination Quartet plays energetic, passionate, direct jazz, which will also surprise the listener with humorous taunts. Just as the name of the band says, it is a music full of imagination, rich, unlimited, sitting where the line between harmony and frantic expression gets blurred.
Imagination Quartet has already played over 70 concerts, among others the finals of Jazz po polsku Berlin (2013), Copenhagen Jazz Festival (2012), Dreszer Jazz Festival (2011), Krokus Jazz Festival (2010), Jazz Juniors (2010). In June 2010 they performed during the opening event of World Press Photo.
Lineup: Michał Sołtan (guitar), Damian Pińkowski (sax), Dariusz Świtalski (bass), Maciej Dziedzic (drums).
