Adam Jarzmik Quintet with special guest: Mike Moreno

It’s a young group from The Karol Szymanowski Academy of Music in Katowice and last year’s Grand Prix Jazz on the Odra Festival Prize winner. Its leader – Adam Jarzmik – graduated from the piano classes and currently studies music composition and arrangement in Katowice. He calls the quintet his dream team although the group started to play together by a coincidence – they met before the second International Jazz Composition Contest in Katowice. Jarzmik got an award during the contest and has decided to keep on composing with the musicians he met. The band members admit they are competitive and thanks to that, the quintet has received many awards and diplomas. Last year they released their first album called Euphoria which got many, positive reviews from Polish music critics. Couple of months later, the second album Live at Radio Katowice got released – partly as an award in Bielska Zadymka Jazzowa Contest. The band has won many prizes in Sibiu Jazz Festival, Zilina International Jazz Contess and Blue Note Competition. The group will perform with special guest Mike Moreno – an American guitar player, who inspired Adam Jarzmik while working on the first album.
