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 fifth part of the inteview, our guest reminisces about his first recording sessions, the Warsaw jazz club scene in the 1970’s, political problems at the time and problems finding a practice room.
Drummers and Drummerettes! Here is the fifth episode of our encounter with Kazimierz Jonkisz!
