Band lead by Sylwester Ostrowski featuring Freddie Hendrix and Essiet Essiet comes to town
The Jazz Brigade wants to please anyone looking for a good dose of bop this summer. This extraordinary band, at the centre of many creative collaborations, is touring Europe. From the Colosseum in Rome to the Amersfoort festival, the group’s leader, Sylwester Ostrowsky, looks every fan straight in the eye and tells them out loud: “Here’s some jazz for you!”. So, enjoy Ostrowsky’s and Hendrix’s own compositions – a celebration of modern jazz with plenty of respect for the weight of tradition. You can also enjoy the close cooperation of a group of friends from different places and generations who share both talent and love for music. The Polish saxophonist and composer Ostrowsky has got together with the trumpeter Freddie Hendrix, a soloist from the Count Basie Orchestra; the well-known Catalan pianist Albert Bover; the groover Owen Hart Jr; Art Blakey’s double bass player Essiet Essiet; and the guitarist Mizeracki. Together they make up a group who are now veterans of shows like “A Night in Anzio” (Italy) and “A Night at La Paloma” (Barcelona).
