Grzech Piotrowski Quartet

Grzech Piotrowski is one of the more interesting personages in the Polish music world. It’s a figure difficult to be taken into specific frames as he is a saxophone player, musical producer, arranger, publisher (Alchemic Records), and the owner of “Mała i czarna” Warsaw jazz club in one. Winner of many prestigious awards (for example-Grand Prix Hoilaart Jazz Festival 1998), a very prolific musician, balancing on the edge of jazz, folk, new impressionism and film music. His open stage personality attracts people and his music finds its way directly to their soul. The characteristic features of Grzech’s formations are energy, lyrics, nostalgia, musical metaphor and meditation. At the same time they are full of humor and musical distance. The artist stresses out that his music is deeply rooted in the Polish tradition, Eastern and Balkan folk and in classical music. Grzech cooperates with, among others: Ruth Wilhelmine Meyer, Terje Isungset, Sainkho Namtchylak, Arild Andersen, Jon Christensen, Jorn Simen Overli, Theodosii Spassov, Azat Bikchurin, Neli Andreeva, Sinikka Langeland, Borys Szyc, Marcin Wasilewski, Vladiswar Nadishana, Bram Stadhouders, Wiesław Pieregorólka, Marcel Comendant, Kasia Moś,Piotr Polk and with other bands, such as: Akku, Karuzela Group, World Orchestra, Alchemik.
