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 seventh part of the inteview, our guest discusses his approach to practising and warm-up, i.e. the techniques and the amount of time he uses for that. He also talks about his (and incidentally a great American jazz drummer’s) opinion on practice pads.
Drummers and Drummerettes! Here is the seventh episode of our encounter with Kazimierz Jonkisz!
