Polish trumpeter Tomasz Stanko became well known for the pioneering jazz he created with Krzysztof Komeda in Krakow in the 1960s, and over the last 20 years has produced a range of acclaimed recordings on ECM.

Here is a chance to hear his lastest project at London’s Barbican. Joined by his New York Quartet – Thomas Morgan (bass), Gerald Cleaver (drums) and David Virelles (piano) – he will perform jazz that takes inspiration from the poetry of Wisława Szymborska.

Expect lyrical riffs, with plenty of space and no compromise on a brilliant atmosphere.
