New Trio

It was amazing meeting, beautiful concert with really kind people. Tim Daisy and Mikola Trzaska. I played with Mikolaj few times before  but it was first time with Tim. Just want to say one thing: it is really easy play with good musicians - music is coming and You don't have to think about it. Amazing experience.  Tomorrow we'll play on jazz festival in Sanok. I hope we will continue in future.

Workshop of collective spontaneous improvisation

Lecture and workshop in Lublin. In workshop I will present  technics of preparation to collective activity, technics came from martial art which I treat as a one of paradigm of activity in group. And the technics of preparing for cooperation ("negative cooperation" in prakseology) in martial arts are most useful in my opinion (since 5 years I practise TaiJi Quan Chen). If You are interested in what we (as an artists-improvisers) can learn from masters of martial art, let You come to Lublin in Poland. Here You can read about it (only in polish):

Why Thomastik?

Lot of people asked me: why Thomastik-Infeld? There are not so popular strings for bass guitar. I can say only: there are the best strings for acoustic bass guitar which I've ever used. Clear?

56 again

Today me and Mietek Górka (drummer of Ensemble 56) had a meeting with Wawrzyniec, owner of label Multi Kulti Project. It seems that in October Ensemble 56 will have second CD, live recording with special guest - amazing polish sax player Piotr Baron. As usual music is recorded by Rafal Drewniany DTS Mobile Studio.
