Description

Komeda moves to Warsaw, now the centre of Polish jazz. He plays in Stodoła and Hybrydy, where he gives Urszula Dudziak her first major gig. Roman ‘Gucio’ Dyląg explains how Komeda composed outlines for his film music and encouraged each performer to improvise within these outlines to the scenes in each film.
