Wlodzimierz Gulgowski biography
Włodzimierz (other name variations: Włodek, Wlodek, Vlodek) Gulgowski, born 13.02.1944, is a Polish jazz pianist, composer and arranger. He debuted in an amateur swing band to soon join a dixieland ensemble New Orleans Stompers with which he made his first recordings in 1963.
The same year he performed during the festival Jazz Jamboree '63 in Zbigniew Namysłowski Quartet. The band achieved notable success and in 1964 recorded Z. Namysłowski Modern Jazz Group: Lola for British record company Decca. It was the first Polish jazz album recorded abroad.
Moreover, in 1965 the band was invited to take part in a movie „Jazz aus Polen” produced by a German critic Joachim E. Berendt for TV in West Germany.
Soon after Gulgowski emigrated to Sweden where he started to collaborate with prominent jazz ensembles of Scandinavia and USA (he also collaborated with an American percussionist Tony Williams - „Pop workshop: Songs Of The Pterodactil”) and composed a lot of tunes for radio and TV.
Fascinated with new possibilities and jazz-rock stylistics Gulgowski went in 1974 to the USA in order to, together with Michał Urbaniak, promote so-called „slavic fusion”. This cooperation and joint touring fructified with two albums issued under the name of Urbaniak: „Fusion III” and „Funk Factory”.
In 1976, back in Sweden, he recorded his own solo album „Soundcheck” with his trio Made In Sweden (Steve Gadd - percussion, Anthony Jackson - bass) where he explored the power of Mini Moog.
Gulgowski engaged also in projects from outside Jazz territory. He was e.g. an arranger and performer on first albums of a Swedish pop band ABBA.
In 1978 he toured and recorded in Europe and USA with an Italian guitarist Al Di Meola.
Włodzimierz Gulgowski still lives in Sweden and visits his home country from time to time (e.g. International Festival of Jazz Pianists in Kalisz 1981, Jazz Jamboree '84).
