HIGH DEFINITION QUARTET

High Definition Quartet is one of the most interesting and award-winning Polish jazz ensembles of the younger generation. Its originality and musical freshness are well received in Poland and abroad – the quartet has won an array of the highest laurels at prestigious jazz festivals and competitions, including the most valuable of all – First Prize at Jazz Hoeilaart 2012 in Belgium, amongst others. The ensemble musicians are also winners of prestigious individual competitions. Suffice it to say that Piotr Orzechowski is the winner of the Montreux Jazz Solo Piano Competition 2011 in Switzerland and Alan Wykpisz was honoured with an award at Bass2012 Copenhagen in Denmark.

The band had their debut on the phonographic market with ‘Hopasa’ album (EmArcy Records/Universal Music Polska, 2013), which was exceptionally well received by critics and nominated for the Fryderyk 2014 award. The band also received a prize in the ‘Best Album of the Year’ category at Grand Prix Jazz Melomani 2014.

High Definition Quartet has to its credit numerous concerts performed in Poland, Belgium, Spain, Ukraine, India, Canada and the USA, as well as collaboration with jazz trumpet giant Randy Brecker, as part of which they have toured Poland and the Persian Gulf countries (2012-2013).
