POLAND'S ASTONISHING YOUNG JAZZ PIANIST
MARCIN MASECKI
PLAYING SOLO AT JOE'S PUB NOVEMBER 11

Poland's emerging jazz piano star Marcin Masecki is making his New York City debut with a solo concert at Joe's Pub on Saturday, November 11, at 7:30 PM. The concert is presented by the Polish Cultural Institute in New York as part of the 8th International Chopin & Friends Festival organized by New York Dance & Arts Innovations, Inc.

The Warsaw-born Masecki (1982) made a sensation in Moscow in 2005, winning the main prize at the International Jazz Piano Competition, awarded by a jury presided over by France's legendary Martial Solal. Raised in a musical family, Marcin started his music adventure very early, doing ear training and harmony exercises/games at age 3 with his father, a clarinetist, and taking up the piano at age seven. By twelve, he was a regular at the legendary Polish jazz club “Akwarium" and formed his own trio and started performing at various festivals by 15. A year later he joined a young group, Alchemik, which won the prestigious Jazz Hoeilaart competition in Belgium with Marcin winning the “best soloist" prize. On a scholarship to study at Berklee College of Music, he studied with outstanding musicians such as Dave Samuels, Robert Moog and Danilo Perez, later returning to Poland, where he guested with the “Innocent Sorcerers - Live", playing beside the great trumpeter Tomasz Stanko, and performed solo or with Trio at various festivals at home and abroad.

“Marcin Masecki's music requires of the listener concentration, imagination, and a break with the accustomed way of listening to jazz. Marcin astonished the audience with his creativity, vitality and technical prowess. He is a talent with a great future"--Jazz Forum
