JAKUB CYWIŃSKI QUINTET featuring Denquar Chupak on vocals
Jakub Cywiński Quintet was founded in June 2022 in London on the initiative of double bass player Jakub Cywiński. The idea of the band is to present original compositions as well as to perform own arrangements of jazz standards. Their music oscillates on the border of mainstream jazz, free and classical trends.
The band consists of recognized musicians from the London scene and beyond, each of them collaborates with many different projects, composes and records solo albums.
Denquar Chupak is a British-Thai singer, songwriter, musician and actress.
Duncan Eagles, a London-based acclaimed saxophonist (Partikel), performs regularly at venues and festivals all over the world
John Paul Muir has established himself as one of the finest pianists to emerge from New Zealand in recent years, and certainly one of the most versatile; equally at home in both classical, jazz, and contemporary genres.
Eric Ford "excels on drums throughout - bold, crisp, creative, in total command of a seemingly endless range of techniques'' (Eddie Myer)
Born in Poland, based in London, Jakub Cywiński is a double bass player and composer who currently explores his interest in collaborating with various contemporary composers and jazz musicians such as Ola Onabule, Marco Marconi , Partikel, Power of the Horns and Nicolas Meyer among others… He studied double bass as a postgraduate at the Royal College of Music. His varied freelance career has taken him to India, Russia, Lebanon and other places around the world....
Jakub also composes his own original music, which will be presented on the 8th October at Jazz Café POSK alongside band’s own arrangements of their favourite jazz standards… An evening not to be missed!
