artists website


Oles Brothers - drummer Bartlomiej Oles and doublebassist Marcin Oles are one of the most productive and creative artist in jazz. Since the very beginning of the XXI century they have recorded over 35 albums, many of them were awarded by critics and the public. Although they were acclaimed as a “dream team” by Jazz Zeitung or as the “best rhythm section” or even as a “treasure of Polish jazz” by Polish critics, they are most of all authors of the original music in which the main point of reference is jazz. They cooperate with many outstanding musicians from all around the world and from completely different music traditions. They constantly extend the language of jazz for territories such as contemporary music or traditional music which was proved in album such as “SEFARDIX” (Folk Phonogram of the 2013 according Polish Radio).
