When: 
10feb'05

This will be the seventh edition of the BIELSKO JAZZ BLIZZARD - LOTOS JAZZ FESTIVAL, which will once again host an array of top Polish and foreign jazz stars.

This year's edition will feature appearances by the legendary two-time Grammy Award winners The Yellowjackets (USA) and one of the world's top trumpeters, Terence Blanchard, to be accompanied by his sextet (USA). Also scheduled to perform in their only appearances in Poland are the American groups The Doug Wamble Quartet and Gutbucket, a group that refers to its music as punk-jazz. Visiting from France will be the No Jazz ensemble, which combines funk, jazz and acid jazz with trip-hop and even jungle, while Poland will be represented by the musician Alchemik (The Alchemist) who will be joined by an array of guests that will include the Golec brothers, Mika Urbaniak and her musicians playing jazz-hip hop, and Wojciech Staroniewicz with his "Hand-Made" project.

The event's finale, traditionally held at the lodge on Szyndzielnia mountain, will feature the Polish-Ukrainian formation Riverboat Ramblers. This group plays both the great standards of Swing, Dixie Land and New Orleans jazz, as well as Bossa Nova, varied Latin American music and great Russian traditionals.

A competition addressed to young musicians who have yet to make their recording debut is another important element of the BIELSKO JAZZ BLIZZARD. Those who emerge victorious from the competition get an opportunity to record and release their first album. Traditionally, the BLIZZARD will include a vast exhibition of photographs portraying musicians who appeared at previous editions of the event. This year's festival will also include an exhibit titled THIS IS JAZZ, consisting of Andrzej Karewicz's photographs of the some of the world's top jazz stars.
