JazZamek #33 \ Łukasz Ojdana – Kurpian Songs & Meditations

Łukasz Ojdana is a pianist and composer known to jazz audience from the outstanding RGG trio with whom he has recorded and performed live since 2013, though it’s only a part of his artistic activities. For three years, Ojdana played in Tomasz Stańko’s last quartet, and is one of the current members of Zbigniew Namysłowski’s quintet. His discography to date includes 9 highly acclaimed and awarded albums. Ojdana himself is also a winner of numerous prestigious competitions.

Kurpian Songs & Meditations is Ojdana’s first thoroughly authorial release, on which the musician takes on traditional melodies of the Kurpie region.  “The choice of the theme—although it may seem fairly obvious—was not without its challenges. What I found interesting in the Kurpie songs is that due to the limited key of my instrument I cannot fully reproduce them.”
