Tribute to Andrzej Przybielski – vol.1
“Tribute to Andrzej Przybielski – vol. I”. – A historic event has taken place – the recording session of the album dedicated to the memory of Andrzej Przybielski has come to an end. On the initiative of Maciej Fortuna, six outstanding trumpeters (Wojciech Jachna, Piotr Schmidt, Marcin Gawdzis, Maurycy Wójciński, Tomasz Kudyk, Maciej Fortuna) and a rhythm section whose members worked with Przybielski (Grzegorz Nadolny, Grzegorz Daroń, Jakub Kujawa) met.
The artists met in the place where Andrzej Przybielski lived and worked. The unique atmosphere of the recording session resulted in material far beyond the volume of a single album. The first album “Tribute To Andrzej Przybielski” will feature the songs “Afro Blues”, “In the Ark”, “Hey Jack”, “Afro Motive” and improvised forms, which, as the artists themselves say – best reflect the “spirit” of Andrzej Przybielski. A transcript of a conversation conducted with Andrzej Przybielski in Bydgoszcz’s Brain will also be included.
The premiere of the album will take place on November 5, 2016, on that day a ceremonial premiere concert will be held at the Municipal Cultural Center in Bydgoszcz.
