High Definition Quartet

A leading Polish improvised music ensemble, expanding the concept of a contemporary music collective. Rewarded in major European jazz competitions, such as Jazz Hoeilaart (Belgium). Randy Brecker called them “one of the most incredible bands if not the most incredible group I have ever played with.”

The quartet records and releases compositions and arrangements created by Piotr Orzechowski (Pianohooligan). They entered the music market with their debut CD Hopasa (EmArcy/Universal, 2013), hailed by jazz media (including the Grand Prix Jazz Melomani poll) as album of the year. Their next release, Bukoliki (Bucolics, ForTune, 2015), a reworking of Witold Lutosławski’s cycle, met with an equally high critical acclaim and was named as best album of the year by the ‘Rzeczpospolita’ daily.

High Definition Quartet is invited to perform at major festivals in Poland and abroad, including Jazz on the Odra and Jazztopad (Poland), Rochester Jazz Festival (USA), Edmonton Jazz Festival (Canada), jazzahead! (Germany), and Getxo International Jazz Festival (Spain). They also appeared at Jazz Utsav (India), Ubud Jazz Festival (Indonesia), and Gulf Jazz Festival (Kuwait).

They have given performances in the best venues and clubs, such as Bohemian Caverns (Washington), Jazz Station (Brussels), and Opus Jazz (Budapest). In the autumn of 2018, the quartet toured in China.
