Makowicz-Medyna-Dingler Jazz Ensemble, Presented by Inglot

Blue Note Jazz Festival is proud to welcome iconic Polish pianist Adam Makowicz with his esteemed group, the Makowicz-Medyna-Dingler Jazz Ensemble, for a special event presented by Inglot, the festival's presenting sponsor and one of the world's leading cosmetic brands. Adam Makowicz is a Polish-American pianist and composer living in the New York area. He performs jazz and classical piano pieces, as well as his own compositions. Besides playing solo, he has worked with such musicians among many as Earl Hines, Ben Webster, Phil Woods, Jack DeJohnette, as well as with the National Symphony of Washington DC, at the Kennedy Center, at Carnegie Hall, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, in London, with the Moscow Symphony Orchestra and other major orchestras at concert halls in the Americas and in Europe. His technical skills as jazz pianist have been compared to that of Art Tatum, Oscar Peterson, and Erroll Garner, among others. He studied classical music at the Chopin Conservatory of Music in Kraków. Overcoming cultural restrictions under communism, he developed a passion for modern jazz. At the time, political freedom and improvisation were disapproved of by the pro-Soviet authorities. Nonetheless, he embarked on a new professional life by switching from a career of a classical pianist to that of a touring jazz pianist. After years of hardship, Makowicz got a regular gig at a small jazz club in the cellar of a house in Kraków. By the mid-1970s, Makowicz established himself as one of the leading pianists in Europe. He was named the "Best Jazz Pianist" by the readers of Jazz Forum magazine, and was awarded a gold medal for his contribution to the arts. In 1977 Makowicz went on a ten-week concert tour of the United States, produced by John Hammond. At that time he recorded a solo album entitled Adam on CBS. In 1978 he settled in New York. Since that time he has recorded over 30 CDs in Amer
