Andrzej Grzegorz Przybielski (August 9, 1944 – February 9, 2011) in Bydgoszcz (Poland), was a Polish jazz trumpeter associated with the avant-garde jazz and free jazz scenes.

Career[edit]

Having graduated from the Technic School of Bydgoszcz, Andrzej Przybielski started with traditional jazz, playing with Bogdan Ciesielski and Jacek Bednarek within the "Traditional Jazz group". Until the mid-60s, he played cornet and trumpet, specializing in blues and Dixieland music, his inspiration coming from Dizzy Gillespie and Miles Davis.

In 1968, along with the Gdansk Trio he won the Jazz nad Odrą (Jazz aboard the Oder). In 1969, along with the Modern Music Foundation, he took part in the Jazz Jamboree festival.

He composed for the Warszawa National Theatre, the Performer Theatre in Zamość, and the Witkacy Theatre of Zakopane. He cooperated with such musicians as: Helmut Nadolski, Jacek Bednarek, Andrzej Kurylewicz, Czesław Niemen, Tomasz Stańko, Stanisław Sojka, Adam Hanuszkiewicz, Wanda Warska, the brothers Marcin and Bartłomiej Oleś, Ryszard Tymon Tymański, Wojciech Konikewicz and Józef Skrzek. He was the co-leader and co-author of the groups Sesja, Big Band Free Cooperation and Acoustic Action.

At the beginning of the 1990s, he founded his own group in his home-town of Bydgoszcz and named it Asocjacja Andrzeja Przybielskiego (The Andrzej Przybielski Association). It was made up of the following musicians: Karol Szymanowski (vibes), Andrzej Kujawa (bass), Józef Eljasz (percussion). One year later, he formed another group with Grzegorz Nadolny (bass) and Grzegorz Daroń (percussion). The association was the artist's main creative project and remained very active with the same performers until the end of his life, performing many concerts throughout Poland and the rest of Europe.

In addition, he contributed to the Yass scene. He could be heard in the Mózg club in Bydgoszcz, notably in the company of the groups Sing Sing Penelope and NRD.

Andrzej Przybielski died on the February 9, 2011.[1] He was buried in the Bydgoszcz Municipal Cemetery on the February 15, 2011.[2]

On the February 9, 2012, first anniversary of the artist's death, Zdzisław Pająk published his biography Maluj muzykę, bracie. Andrzej Przybielski 1944-2011 (Paint the music, brother. Andrzej Przybielski 1944-2011).[3]
