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 eighth part of the inteview, our guest discusses the most important thing he always tries to convey to his students, as well as his love for jazz and Elvin Jones‘s playing.
Drummers and Drummerettes! Here is the eighth and final episode of our encounter with Kazimierz Jonkisz!
