Album Description

Starting at the beginning of this year, Krzysztof Medyna and Andrzej Winnicki (Komeda Project alumni), have set to put a new and entirely different project together. So, the WM Project was born. In March we've got a bunch of amazing New York City musicians together to record a new CD. Here's the line-up: Jeremy Pelt on trumpet, Marshall Gilkes on trombone (awarded a title of the Rising Star in the latest DownBeat Magazine critics poll and a double 2016 Grammy nominee), Krzysztof Medyna (Komeda Project and Slawomir Kulpowicz In/Formation alumnus) on tenor sax, Rafal Sarnecki - on guitar, Andrzej Winnicki (Komeda Project alumnus) on piano, Jeff Dingler on bass and Michael Winnicki on drums. The title of the upcoming CD is "From a Familiar Place". It will be officially released by the middle of October. It contains two widely known standards: "Mercy, Mercy Mercy" by Joe Zawinul and "Take Five" by Paul Desmond (of Dave Brubeck Quartet fame) as well as 7 originals.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
