Rafal Mazur

Primary Instrument: Bass, acoustic

Born: June 17, 1971    

Rafal Mazur's involvement with music began in his youth with violoncello studies in Krakow. He switched to bass guitar in the late 1980's. Since 2000 he has played an acoustic bass guitar built to his own specifications by luthier Jerzy Wysocki. He has developed an advanced and individual approach to his instrument, and to improvisation in general, in which sonority, extended technique and gesture combine effortlessly in performance.

He has taken an important role in Kraków to support young artists and improvised music. A founder of the ImproArt studio of improvisation, he has performed jazz and improvised music in clubs and festivals across Poland and Europe, and in China, South Korea and Israel. In recent years he has collaborated with Lisa Ullen, Frederic Blondy, Charlotta Hug, Raymond Strid, Keir Neuringer, Zsolt Sores and Attila Dóra and others. His current focus is the trio Ensemble 56. He is an organizer of the Laboratory of Intuition, a series of spontaneous art presentations in Kraków....

Ensemble 56 - Towards Sky Flight of Dragon ”...Spontaneous, improvised music is an art in its own. Dora, Gorka and Mazur have transcended the ordinary to find an intuitive weave and give their music a presence of depth and dimension. The path is not always distinct, it becomes clear as they let their imaginations co-exist and divine the journey...” All About Jazz
