JAZZBLASTDFW - August-September 2019

Hello jazz fans in Dallas!
Grazyna Auguscik, #1 progressive jazz vocalist, composer and arranger, and one of the leading jazz singers worldwide finally comes to Dallas! Howard Reich of the Chicago Tribune placed Grazyna’s concert in the Millennium Park in Chicago on the list of 10 most important jazz concerts in the world in the last 30 years of his carrier! (Chicago Tribune, 8/27/2010). Featured in about 40 CD, she amazes both critics and fans alike, wherever she goes. Grazyna Auguscik is not known in Dallas yet, but we deserve the best of the best, so I am bringing her to the DFW area. She will perform on Friday, March 20th at the Eisemann Center and on Saturday, March 21st at the Live Oak in Ft. Worth.
I was always dreaming of a real Dallas International Jazz festival, such as in Montreal, or Montreux. I hope this will be my contribution to building one.
See you there!

Notes on her newest CD, Grażyna Auguścik Orchestar – „Inspired by Lutosławski”
This extraordinary album is a superb example of intelligent contemporary music, which is completely unlimited by the imaginary bounds set up by genres and other labeling concepts. Polish vocalist Grażyna Auguścik embarked on this ambitious project with the help of some of the most important musicians on the Polish scene, who cover a wide scope of stylistic spheres including Classical Music, Folklore and Jazz, all of which have been already visited by her during her prolific career.
There is no doubt that this is definitely one of the most important and beautiful albums released in Poland in 2014, a “complete” multi-layered, multi-faced effort involving the talents of many wonderful musicians and setting a golden standard for future projects, which will be very difficult to match end even more so to rise above. Polish music scene and Polish Culture is glorified by this project, which should make all Poles proud.
