Reuters reports that Tomasz Stanko, a Polish trumpeter, composer and prominent figure in avant-garde and free jazz for decades, died on Sunday at the age of 76. This according to the Polish Jazz Association.
Stanko was born in Rzeszow in southern Poland in 1942. He made his debut in the late 1950s in Krakow. He later gained a global reputation playing alongside jazz luminaries such as drummer Jack deJohnette and bassist Dave Holland.
Stanko’s early influences came from jazz trumpet icons such as Miles Davis and Chet Baker. He was soon drawn primarily to the free-form jazz of Ornette Coleman and Don Cherry. He often recorded for the ECM label.
