On June 17, 2016, we met with the legendary Polish jazz drumming veteran Kazimierz Jonkisz and had this nice chat with the man before his gig with Krzysztof Popek Fresh Air Project at the Blue Note in Poznań, Poland. As Mr. Jonkisz turned out to be one of BeatIt’s most talkative guests ever, you are in for lots of tasty stories and anecdotes from over 50 years of Polish jazz history. After all, we are dealing with an outstanding musician who has an exceptionally rich C.V.
In the second part of the inteview, we discuss our guest’s initial jazz fascinations, problems at school resulting from playing that kind of music, listening to the Voice of America, the first success and an arduous search for the knowledge of jazz.
