THE KOMEDA PROJECT

Stonnington Youth Jazz Initiative – Miroslav Bukovsky and Andrea Keller Octet

 

During his life he was the most significant figure in Polish Jazz, who helped shape the global jazz landscape, and in this remarkable tribute performance, Melbourne’s jazz elite pays tribute to Krzysztof Komeda.

 

The distinctive, poetic moods of Krzysztof Komeda’s music combines traditional folk melodies with individual jazz expression, and are instantly recognizable as his own.

 

Komeda’s best known music is the score he composed for film director Roman Polanski’s “Rosemary’s Baby”.

 

Pianist Andrea Keller and trumpeter Miroslav Bukovsky, both with Eastern European heritage, have come together to reinterpret Komeda’s music with a specially assembled octet in a tribute that promises to be poignant and deeply moving.

 

Opening this special concert will be the SYJI.

 

Fresh from their impressive performances at The Eltham Jazz Festival, Melbourne Women’s Festival (Bennetts Lane) and The Reid Street Stage, Wangaratta Jazz Festival, the Stonnington Youth Jazz Initiative (young musicians who go to school and/or live in Stonnington).

 

Co lead by jazz luminaries Bob Sedergreen and Allan Browne along with their special guests Ian Dixon, flugelhorn and Peter Harper, tenor sax will feature a programme of classic modern jazz standards and some originals.
