ADAM MAKOWICZ - Pianist, Arranger, Composer
As a youngster learning classical piano in mid-fifties Poland, Adam Makowicz discovered jazz on Willis Conover''s Voice of America broadcasts. By the time he was brought to New York by legendary producer John Hammond in 1977, he could already be heard on 26 albums, had performed on three continents, and been voted Number One Jazz Pianist of Europe six years in a row by the readers of Jazz Forum. Since then he has performed with many jazz masters, jazz groups and orchestras. A major attraction at jazz festivals worldwide, he has expanded his discography to 52 albums, with 36 of them under his own name. In addition to his brilliant improvisations on Berlin,Gershwin,Ellington, Bernstein and other composers,he brings his extraordinary technical virtuosity to bear upon his own musical roots, building bridges between classical music and jazz, as in the disc Reflections on Chopin. The latest recording of his own compositions, Songs for Manhattan, has been released on his own label (AM Re`cords) in October of 2003.
