I Don’t Care - 2008 Polish Swedish Jazz Connection
From a trombonist friend, Dymitr Markiewicz, all the way in Poland I received a film of him playing with his Polish Swedish Jazz Connection at the “Golden Washboard Festival” in Ilawa Poland.
Several years earlier Dymitr lived in Sweden and was the trombonist of Hans Carling’s New Cooling’s Jazzmen. He had a big influence on the early development of Hans Carling’s daughter’s trombone playing. Both Gunhild and Gerd became fine players.
Many years later Dymitr is here with a number of excellent musicians, and yes, they are Swedish and Polish playing the music in the New Orleans tradition in a city some 200 km north of Warsaw.
In the band: Erik Berndalen trumpet, Mikael Cinthio clarinet, Dymitr trombone, Viktor Zydron and Pawell Tartanus banjos, Huba Olejnik bass and Wojtek Kaminski piano
Here in North America we don’t hear a lot from musicians from that area, but these men can stand up to most I have presented on youtube and dailymotion.
Enjoy this great group.
