Today, at 21:00 I’ll play for you an improvised set with Music From Non-Existent movies. It will be a unique concert – Anna Gadt joins me this time, I’s soooo lucky! She’s a brilliant artist, improviser, singer, composer… and a great person – if you don’t know her albums, be sure to listen. More information about Anna can be found here.
One more thing – we decided to base our improvisations on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. This is the milestone document which says that we are all equal. That we have the same rights. That no one can be illegally deprived of these rights, freedom, or dignity … Now, when nationalism begins to revive again, when people are excluded on the basis of their beliefs, sexual orientation, when we are so divided – now we want to recall this text: “all people are born equal… ”. This declaration was proclaimed by the United Nations in 1948. After the war. So that there would be no more wars …
Link to the concert will appear here and on my Facebook 15 mins before the concert. You can listen and watch it for free. Enjoy!

Just a moment ago we’ve left the studio. Anna Gadt – voice, Annemie Osborne – cello, Patryk Zakrocki – viola. And me on guitars. We’ve played some improvised chamber music. Just wanted to capture the moment of our meeting, I hope we’ll be able to share it with you soon!
During the rehearsal and during the Imagine Nation concert at the Jazz Jamboree festival we were accompanied by Krzysztof Machowina, a great photographer and a great pal. Krzysztof agreed to have some of his photos posted on my site – here they are, enjoy!
It’ll be a cool week. On Thursday I will play with Patryk Zakrocki in DZiK. We’ve invited phenomenal Anna Gadt to play together – in my opinion, she is one of the best and most creative vocalists in Europe. If someone has not heard her latest album yet, then please do not hesitate to reach the Misterium Lunae. On Thursday we improvise open and unexpected forms, I can not wait.
And on Sunday my trio will play in Cud Nad Wisłą. It’s a beautiful place, I’m so glad we can perform there! We’ll play some new things, some songs from previous albums. Maciek Szczyciński will play the bass, and Szymon Linette for the first time in this line-up on drums. Just come and listen!
