From its very inception, Krakow Jazz Autumn has not only featured stars of the international improvisation scene and provided a stage for the most interesting phenomena in this genre from around the world, but has also served as a forum at which particularly promising artists on the Polish scene have an opportunity to show what they’re capable of.
We have the pleasure of informing you that Kraków Jazz Autumn has been ranked on the Jazzarium website as the most important event of 2012 in Poland!
“But what if we let the music simply come into being, gave it space and waited to see what would occur?” This is the question that has been posed by Wacław Zimpel, the founder of Hera.

Haduch, Majewski and Suchar, by seeking their own path in spontaneous composition, constitute three strong personalities and energies continuously interacting with each other.
