The 53rd edition of the Jazz on the Odra Festival will be celebrated from April 26th until Sunday. The last day of April was declared the International Jazz Day by UNESCO, and we celebrated it last year, in connection with the European Capital of Culture Wrocław 2016. This tradition will be upheld. During this year’s edition of the Jazz on the Odra Festival, we will celebrate April 30th as the International Jazz Day… Polish Jazz! The motto of this year’s edition, POLISH JAZZ – YES, which is based on the title of the latest album by Zbigniew Namysłowski, will set the mood of the finale of the 53rd Jazz on the Odra Festival.
Starting early in the afternoon and going until late at night, the four Impart stages and the open air stage will be taken over by over a dozen of outstanding Polish bands, including: Zbigniew Namysłowski 77, Piotr Wojtasik – Tribute to Akwarium, Kraków Jazz Collective, Eskaubei and Tomasz Nowak Quartet ft. Mr Krime, Magda Zawartko and Grzegorz Piasecki, trio Jachna/Tarwid/Karch – Sundial II and Kuba Stankiewicz with his latest project – Music of Henry Mancini. The special programme dedicated to Buddy Rich, an amazing drummer, will be prepared by his great fan, Zbigniew Lewandowski. Levandek became fascinated with Buddy Rich exactly 40 years ago, during the 14th Jazz on the Odra. Together with Bartosz Pernal’s Big Band, they will play the compositions by Killer Force.
