Jacek Mazurkiewicz profile...

Recently I have stumbled over an interesting music (link here) recorded by avantgarde flutist Dominik Strycharski and double-bassist Jacek Mazurkiewicz. Although I know Strycharski from numerous recordings, most of all from very interesting "FAQ" (2009) by his band Pulsarus, as for Jacek Mazurkiewicz I knew nothing about him up to this moment. Fortunately we got in touch with each other and here is short profile intended to acquiesce you with this immensely talented artist.

Jacek Mazurkiewicz is fascinated by avantgarde music and has had already opportunity to cooperate with such prominent players as Andrzej Przybielski, Mikołaj Trzaska or Patryk Zakrocki (known from fantastic duo SzaZa with Paweł Szamburski). In terms of style Mazurkiewicz may be easily put among such illustrious exponents of young Polish avantgarde double-bassists as Ksawery Wójciński or Jakub Cywiński. He is focused on improvised and free side of jazz, he is experimenting with groove, his pulse although deep and vibrant is restless, creative, searching. 

One must be astonished by range and intenisty of his musical experiments. We can find him in trio with legendary Andrzej Przybielski exploring fringes of avantgarde and mainstream...

or in experimental solo recording:

in fantastic avantgarde duo with main player in Polish free jazz saxophonist Mikołaj Trzaska 

or in self-fironic project called Inner Ear Masage Parlour clearly inspired by Monty Python which brings as much laughter as good music:

All in all, I would like to say that this musician is one of the most active and talented man of those who recently arrived to Warsaw (from Gdynia where he spent last few years) and I am convinced that bright future lays ahead of him...
