Take a sonic journey through the rich history of Polish jazz, presented by Lanquidity Records’ Mateusz Surma and Adrian Magrys in conversation with Wojtek Mazolewski, the celebrated bassist defining the genre for a new generation.
The trio will be digging out the classic records that have shaped and continue to inspire them. From the legendary Polskie Nagrania series to classic sleeve artwork, this sound seminar will take the audience from the 1960s to today, framed by tracks from the Wojtek Mazolewski Quintet’s brand new 12″, freshly dropped on Lanquidity.
