After several years of focusing on contemporary classical music and expanding his repertoire with a series of original symphonic compositions in classical forms, Mateusz Smoczyński returns with a strong emphasis to the strictly jazz music. The new project of Mateusz brings together a world-class team: Markus Stockhausen on trumpet, Kristjan Randalu on piano, Chris Jennings on bass, and Bodek Janke on drums – all artists represented by the most important jazz labels, whose accomplishments need no introduction.
The concert plans for the new project, which will go on tour in the autumn, include a new jazz suite written by Smoczyński. Stylistically, it will be European jazz drawing from classical forms and improvisation, seen through the prism of individual experiences and the distinctive musical language of each of the artists. The premiere of the new project is scheduled for October 10th, 2023.
