When Masecki was 8 years olf his parents took him on a trip to Disneyland. There he became hypnotised by the “Western Bar” pianist. Ever since he has dreamed of playing ragtime. Instead his career took him through free jazz, classical music, avant-garde and pop, film music and everything in between. Finally, after conducting orchestras, composing for choirs, organising festivals and establishing himself as one of the most versatile musicians in Poland, he returns to his childhood fantasy.
The duo with long time friend Jerzy Rogiewicz beautifully joins virtuoso elements of traditional jazz with structures derived from classical music and a phrasing reminiscent of contemporary pop mixed with Ethiopian folk. All borders are blurred and we are served a truly modern cultural dish.
