Oktawia is a professionalist in every respect- as a vocalist, flute player, arranger and even as a dancer. She is a child of the stage! Although we’ve known her from the philharmonic where she has played with the key young Polish jazz musicians for three years, her musical fantasies are only beginning to flourish. Soon her debut album will come out, where she presents in her own way all the nostalgia to our classical music from the romanticism period, as well as jazz, movie tracks and music from TV. She reaches to finest songs performed previously by “The Older Man Band,” Jeremy Przybora and Jerzy Wasowski’s cabaret from Poland, as well as the forgotten Bronislaw Kapper, an Oscar Award winner from Hollywood and Broadway(...)

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.
