Karnas has worked with Poland’s jazz legends as well as top-line artists of Europe’s jazz scene. In 2006 and 2007 he was awarded Grand Prix of jazz vocal competitions in Bruxelles and Crest, France.Grzegorz Karnas started his bands in 1998. Karnas’ projects - trios without a harmonic instrument and quartets in different line-up configurations are far removed from the classical paradigm. The group likes drawing on the trance-like nature of ostinatos and the abstraction of modal playing, developed on the basis of simple melodic themes. A brief, general outline of GRZEGORZ KARNAS FORMULA in concert would be: accoustic, energy-filled and groovily hipnotic music-making with a hefty dose of improvisation.
