EL GRECO
A new musical project created by outstanding artists

Jorgos Skolias – vocal | Joachim Mencel – piano | Dj Krime – gramophones | Andrzej Święs – double bass | Harry Tanschek – drums

Their work is a unique fusion of jazz, club music, world music and poetry.
“El Greco” performs Joachim Mencel’s musical compositions written for the most distinguished world- renowned poems by Emily Dickinson, Oscar Wilde, Cyprian Kamil Norwid, Jan Kochanowski and others.

“… for some time now, Mencel’s compositions have been a combination of elements of jazz and jazz improvisation with the tones of club and world music. The result is brilliant. ‘El Greco’ mixes styles in the most natural way – smoothly, not pushy, as if one style ensues from another. Much credit goes to the accompanying artists. The whole sounded splendidly. … Mencel achieved something great: he filled the performance with true emotions.”

Tomasz Handzlik, Gazeta Wyborcza

Jorgos Skolias – a phenomenal vocalist who successfully uses various vocal techniques, including throat singing, an exceptionally rare technique which allows a singer to create three pitches at the same time.

Joachim Mencel – one of the best jazz pianists in Poland, a distinguished composer and a music producer.

Dj Krime – a popular dj and a musician, a winner of prestigious turntable contests, an exceptionally creative artist.

Andrzej Święs – a leading double-bass player on the Polish jazz scene, a prizewinner of many musical competitions.

Harry Tanschek – an extremely versatile drummer, performing equally adroitly both jazz and ethnic music.

They all collaborated with musicians whose names must seem impressive: John Zorn, Nigel Kennedy, Dino Saluzzi, Lee Konitz, David Friedman, Ronie Burrage, Steve Logan, Richard Galiano, Ewa Bem, Anna Maria Jopek, Andrzej Cudzich, Janusz Muniak, Tomasz Stańko, Piotr Wojtasik and others.

Now they formed “El Greco” – a super-band, an absolute sensation!
