Tomasz Dąbrowski is an award-winning Polish trumpeter and composer settled in Scandinavia. With eight albums released under his own name and dozens of CDs as a co-leader and sideman, he is considered one of the most gifted trumpeters and composers in Europe. Tomasz has mostly been known for his work with groups TOM TRIO [ nominated to the Fryderyk Award – Polish Music Industry Award], FREE4ARTS, OCEAN FANFARE, his Japanese quartet AD HOC, string of concerts S-O-L-O: 30th Birthday / 30 Concerts / 30 Cities and projects with Tomasz Stańko, Tyshawn Sorey and Marilyn Mazur. Tomasz is a member of a Danish musician-run collective and record label Barefoot Records.
Tomasz Dąbrowski has always been rejecting the conventions of lineup choice: starting with a trio without a harmonic instrument, forming a duo with drums and a trio with piano and drums, playing solo trumpet concerts. Tomasz is always looking for new sounds, textures and forms, proving that the unconventional has its peculiar colour and is beautiful in its own way.
AllAboutJazz magazine, named Tomasz as one of the 15 most significant European jazz musicians today .
