About this Event

Grazyna Auguscik Group

Grazyna Auguscik - vocals

John Kregor - guitar

Quin Kirchner - drums

Matt Ulery - bass

Nick Photinos - cello

Grazyna Auguscik is one of the most unique and outstanding jazz vocalist of our times. Grazyna's musicality and gorgeous interpretations of works prove that she can swing Chopin's music in a most exuberant and profound way.

The human voice is the most subtle, complex, fragile, yet forceful and seductive instrument to express, in the deepest way, musical ideas, and meanings. There is no surprise that some of the most profound music making is coming from Grazyna's voice, reaching new heights of expressions in Chopin's music.

SPECIAL GUEST

Jaroslaw Bester - accordion

Jaroslaw Bester is an accordion player and a composer, a graduate of the Krakow Academy of Music, and a prizewinner of several international and Polish accordion contests.

He has formed The Cracow Klezmer Band — the only Polish music ensemble that permanently cooperates with John Zorn’s prestigious Tzadik label in New York City.

In his performing style, he combines his wide experience in classical music with many other genres and makes use of some clear improvised forms to create an unusually powerful mix that presents some first-time ever colors and techniques to be achieved on the accordion. Thanks to these skills, he is considered today one of the very original musicians of the worldwide.

His oeuvre, apart from some CDs on the NYC Tzadik label, as well as guest appearances on other CDs, includes some recordings for radio and television in Germany, Sweden, Finland and Poland.
