Biography

Tymon Tymanski, a composer, multi-instrumentalist, poet and writer. Born September the 30th, 1968 in Gdansk, he took private lessons in classical guitar since 8. Tymanski would lead his own groups since his early teenage, his first important band being the Beatles- and hard rock-influenced the Howling Dogs. Between 1982 - 86 he went to a high school, setting up SNI SREDSTVOM ZA UKLANIANIE, a new wave band inspired by Joy Division, Birthday Party and Pere Ubu. In 1986 he enrolled at the English Departament of the Gdansk University, where he joined TOTART, an informal group of poets/performers notorious for their scandalous actions, iconoclastic poetry and manifestos.

His cooperation with TOTART brought about a further transformation of his music and lead to a crucial change in his concept of a stage performance. In 1988 Tymanski founded MILOSC, the most important Polish jazz group of the next decade. Initially free jazz oriented, after clarinetist Mazzoll’’s (MAZZOLL & ARHYTHMIC PERFECTION) and guitarist Tomasz Gwincinski’’s departure (MAESTRO TRYTONY, ŁOSKOT), the quintet became well known in its “classic” line-up consisting of Mikolaj Trzaska on alto sax, Maciek Sikala on tenor, Leszek Mozdzer on piano, Tymanski on double bass and Jacek Olter on drums. Famous for their great stage act, MILOSC dominated the Polish music scene as well as the jazz magazines’ annual polls, voted the best acoustic jazz band for four times in a row and pronounced the most influential group of the decade (Jazz Forum).
