Album Description

The album recorded by two renowned guitarists is a tribute to melodies from movies by the great Polish directors such as Roman Polański and Andrzej Wajda. The phenomenal themes from unforgettable motion pictures have never before sounded more luscious and vivid. Marek Napiórkowski and Artur Lesicki, both leading jazz guitarist in Poland, have been friends since childhood. Yet, this is the very first time they recorded an album in a duo, an ideal formula to present their virtuoso and bring out the beauty of music composed by Krzysztof Komeda, Wojciech Kilar, Andrzej Kurylewicz, Andrzej Korzyński and Jerzy „Duduś" Matuszkiewicz. The timless compositions from the Polish masters of film music is complemented by the duo's original music which aligns perfectly with the album's title – Celuloid. Although the album is a reference to the times when the best Polish films were shot in black and white, it bursts in colors. Most parts have been recorded live, using acoustic and classical guitars crafted by the best guitar makers of the world. You can also hear intriguing sound of twelve-string guitar, mini Martin, charango and electric guitars. The album has been nominated for the Polish music industry awards FRYDERYK in the Jazz Album of the Year 2015 category.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
