Jazz In Chicago’s Dan Melnick Interviews Grazyna Auguscik. Her Orkestra Universale, featuring special guests Paulinho Garcia and Goran Ivanovic performed at the Millennium Park World Class Jazz Made in Chicago on Thursday, August 10, 2006.
Grazyna Auguscik’s pristine vocals have long been a perfect match for the delicate phrasings of Brazilian musician Paulinho Garcia’s guitar. Polish-born Auguscik has been exploring the music of many countries throughout her career. This concert brought virtuoso Polish accordionist Jarek Bester together with Auguscik, Garcia and Yugoslavian guitarist Goran Ivanovic to perform original compositions using native instruments from three continents.
