Jazz in Poland. A history with a long tradition, whose origin can’t be named by a date or singular event. The initial surely is the year 1955 which held pioneering developments, also for every other art form and through a series of events the movement unfolded – until a real jazz scene came by. If though the beginning of the music genre in Poland consisted of improvised music, played by amateurs and enthusiasts, jazz became quickly a part of their musical identity, a whiff of freedom, an outlet for own emotions and thoughts under the circumstances of communist censorship. The polish music has always had a space at the Enjoy Jazz Festival. 2019 we expand this space and explore it deeper under the theme Spotlight Poland. In the focus will also be jazz musicians who are just at the beginning of their career. We are giving them together with the foundation Music Export Poland the opportunity to present themselves to the Enjoy Jazz audience: A total of six especially promising groups will perform, which have previously been chosen by an international jury. In combination with the other events of the segment Spotlight Poland, Enjoy Jazz shows a broad spectrum of current trends surrounding polish jazz.
