Kasia Stankowska Quartet:
Kasia Stankowska – vocals
Łukasz Perek – piano
Jakub Olejnik – double bass
Przemek Jarosz – drums
The band is made up of my friends who live in Wroclaw. They teach at the Music Academy, cooperate with many excellent musicians and love jazz. Łukasz Perek is not only a pianist and trombonist but also a superb arranger and composer.
Our programme includes ‘crazy’ arrangements and our own compositions. Our inspirations? Well, instrumental bands and a wish to make my voice part of the band.
Our trio means me in a double role as a vocalist and pianist. My inspirations? No doubt about it: Diana Krall, Shirley Horn and Carmen McRea.
The programme includes well-known jazz standards, a lot of bossa nova and Polish songs.
