My Jazz Story

I love jazz because jazz gives a performer a lot of freedom. I was first exposed to jazz because my parents liked jazz , they were artists , my family has a long tradition of writers, painters, actors ... I met a great polish Hammond player, saxophonist and pianist Wojciech Karolak when I was about three years old. The best shows I ever attended were Miles Davis at La Vilette in Paris, in 1991, Archie Shepp Quartet and Benny Golson Quartet at JVC Festival in Warsaw in 1991. The first jazz record that my godfather gave me on a tape was Keith Jarret , "The Köln Concert", it`s still one of my favorite records of all times, along with John Coltrane`s "Love Supreme", Sonny Rollins` "Live at the Village Vanguard vol.1&2", Joe Henderson`s "Page One" and "State of the Tenor, vol.1&2", Miles Davis` "Workin' ", "Cookin'", "Relaxin`", "Kind of Blue"... My advice to new listeners is : don`t stop listening to good music!
