Eight years into their career, Jazzpospolita has become one of the most interesting phenomena in polish alternative music. So far, they have released six albums and played about 300 gigs all around the world. In the beginning of their career they used to be compared to such bands as The Cinematic Orchestra, Mogwai or Tortoise. Nevertheless with the band’s line-up unchanged from the beginning – guitar, bass, keys, drums – within years they have established their own and distinguishable sound. The strength of Jazzpo, as called by fans, lies in the unique compositions that place the band on the edges of jazz, post-rock, and electronic music. Combination of jazz harmonies, overdriven guitars, and electronic sounds enabled the band to attract a widely varied audience as well as to perform at jazz clubs and major popular festivals.
The 2014-2015 successful tournee pushed the band to go as far as to China where they toured for two weeks and played at the most renowned festivals such as Beijing Nine Gates or Shenzhen Oct Loft. Every show of the Chinese tour was recorded and in 2016 album called “Jazzpo! Live Made in China” has been released.

UNDER THE RADAR
‘One of the best and brightest bands to play on the upcoming Tallinn Music
Week. This new blend of tunes comes from Poland’s Jazzpospolita who, as the name
implies, throws a dash of jazz into their delicious post-rock tunes’
THE SOUNDTRACK OF MY LIFE
‘Very unique voice on the Polish scene, filling a niche for the young generation of music lovers, who are not really into Jazz proper on one hand, but who are bored with the contemporary Pop and Ambient scenes on the other hand. this music is fresh, exciting and sophisticated, which by itself is already quite rare.’
