Jerry Bergonzi

Jerry Bergonzi has been a saxophonist in great demand for quite some time, from his beginnings with Dave Brubeck until recently with John Abercrombie. He is also an enthusiastic teacher and professor at the New England Conservatory. Jacek Kochan began his career int he 70s of the last century, but he already moved to the U.S.A. a few years later and from there to Canada. He become established as a drummer in demand for Oliver Jones, Kenny Wheeler, John Abercrombie and others by 1995 and already got to know Bergonzi. He returned to Poland a bit later after that. Since that time, he has been accompanying musicians in Europe such as Greg Osby, Gary Thomas and Marc Copland, among others.
Piotr Lemanczyk has his own quartet project with Tim Hagans and plays in other bands alongside of Clarence Penn, Adam Pieronczyk and Jakob Dinesen. One remarkable feature of his is that he not only accompanies solidly and brilliantly, but that he also has an impressive understanding of melodies.
