Wojtek Mazolewski Quintet: Polka (Worldwide Deluxe Edition)

Read "Polka (Worldwide Deluxe Edition)" reviewed by Chris May

Jazz in Poland has a courageous and artistically distinguished history--first in cultural opposition to Soviet-era dictatorship, later as a celebration of national and personal freedoms.

Then comes homage, influenced by the historical figure in question, with works in a contemporaneous style. Finally, there appears art inspired by the spirit of the honoree.

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
