Janusz Muniak - one of the most colorful figures of Polish jazz. Graduated from high school in Cracow, he made his musical debuted in 1960 with Lublin band of Witold Miszczak. The team has proven to be a good school of jazz playing, after which Muniak was spotted and asked to join Tomasz Stanko + Jazz Darings. Concerts of the band did not prevent Muniak from cooperation with Krzysztof Komeda, bands of Jana Ptaszyny Wroblewskiego (Studio Jazz LP, SPPT Chałturnik) and the quartet of Jan Jarczyk.

Only after a few years, as a fully formed musician, Janusz Muniak decided to lead his own bands. Janusz Muniak is one of the forefathers of modern Polish Jazz. His legacy includes the membership in such legendary Polish ensembles as those led by Andrzej Trzaskowski, Krzysztof Komeda and Tomasz Stanko as well as leading his own groups. He is accompanied here by his quintet, which includes pianist Pawel Perlinski, guitarist Marek Blizinski, bassist Andrzej Dechnik and drummer Jerzy Bezucha, all excellent players themselves. Muniak has a completely unique, natural style of improvisation, which is passionate and highly expressive, putting him somewhat aside in a class of his own besides the other distinguished Polish saxophonists, like Zbigniew Namyslowski for example.

His compositions incorporate beautifully Polish folklore and the Jazz tradition, often unintentionally, but always brilliantly. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
