Piotr Orzechowski (check his website), 20 years old, better said young, pianist from Cracow, a disciple of one of the best Polish jazz pianists Piotr Wyleżoł, won Grand Prix at Jazz Competition in Montreux in Switzerland (source in Polish). Although he has been already in few national jazz competitions (Jazz Juniors or Jazz Nad Odrą), it is his first international success and at once he got first prize on one of most renown competitions in the world. He must be the most happy man at the moment but we may also profit from his luck because in such a way new significant voice has come to Polish jazz scene. How original this voice may be you can check by listening to this sample (I want to thank Alicja Dylewska for tracking down this video):
