Jazz in Warsaw

Jez Nelson presents music from Warsaw's distinctive jazz scene, including free-jazz trio Osaka Vacuum and a specially recorded session by the Oles Brothers.

Jez Nelson presents music from Warsaw's distinctive jazz scene. In the last few years the Polish capital has become one of the most exciting centres of European jazz, with a host of young musicians exploring everything from Chopin to electronic music. The programme includes a live performance by Osaka Vacuum - a sax/cello/drums free-jazz trio led by British ex-pat Ray Dickaty - and a specially recorded session by twin brothers Marcin and Bartlomiej Oles.
