Polish Touch

 zur Zeit nicht verfügbar

„Polish Touch“ – a chic collection of jazz songs with Werner Radzik – piano,
Agata Piśko – voice, and two special guests: Axel Mayer – trumpet and
flugehorn, and Bernhard Wimmer – cajon.
Songs of singers and piano players such as Joni Mitchell, Keith Jarrett, Radka
Toneff, Billy Strayhorn, Djavan, Johnny Mercer, Emanuel Schlechter have
inspired Agata Piśko and Werner Radzik to create an elegant and intimate
project of piano and voice. Agata’s delicate and flexible voice has a unique
fancy flavor of a European singer who sings lyrics from the Great American
Songbook. With no doubt, however, you can hear the influence of the jazz
masters Agata had a chance to study with, such as Mark Murphy, Sheila
Jordan, Madeline Eastman, Rebecca Parris.
Inspired by sound and structure of jazz vocal music, Agata has begun to
compose music and write clever lyrics on her own. On this record, you are
going to find two compositions of hers: a jazz waltz with a Polish lyric and a
touch of Polish folk music “Czy to jest milość?’, and a boogaloo ‘Time
Werner Radzik is with no doubt a first class jazz instrumentalist, a highly
sought after pianist and arranger. On this CD you will get to know him as
being a careful accompanist and a brilliant soloist.
To make the music more intense, Agata and Werner invited some of the finest
Austrian musicians to be featured in a few songs. You will hear fabulous Axel
Mayer on trumpet and flugelhorn in the ballad “Then I’ll Be Tired Of You” and
“Time Economy”, and expressive Bernhard Wimmer on cajon in “Time
Economy” and in the jazz waltz “Czy to jest miłość?“.
“Polish Touch” is a fresh project of two experienced musicians with Polish
roots: Agata originally comes from Krakow and has lived in Austria since the
beginning of her studies at Kunst Uni Graz in 1999; Werner, an Austrian
musician, on the other hand, has had Polish ancestors – his grandmother came
from Warsaw.
