Wójciński / Szmańda Quartet
19:00 – 2018-03-06 – Main Auditorium – 25 zł
The quartet’s music is based on improvisation, which naturally takes the form of closed compositions. Their works are the result of the experience and inspiration of each of the performers, and the common denominator of their work is openness to music over stylistic divisions.
After years of independent activity in different bands, the Wójciński brothers decided to create a new formation. They invited the esteemed drummer Krzysztof Szmańda to cooperate with them. The first album of the quartet – “Delusions” was released in April 2016 by the Słuchaj Foundation. The album was recognized by music critics, including was recognized as the 2016 album in the annual critics survey as part of the Polish-Jazz Blogspot.
The band performed, among others at the InJazz festival in Rotterdam (2016), toured as part of the Jazztopad Festival (2017): performed in the USA, Canada and Israel, as well as on the Jazz at Lincoln Center club scene in New York. In December 2017, Wójciński / Szmańda Quartet was recognized by the international jury as the best showcase band at the Jazz Juniors Hitch On Music Exchange in Krakow.
