Aleksander Glondys Jazz Artist
Aleksander Glondys (b. January 30th, 1957 in Bielsko-Biała, Poland) ) is a Polish jazz and rock drummer who led the group Al'Mad, which was described in music journalist Robert Buczek's article for Jazzi Magazine as “one of Poland's finest hard-bop formations”. He is also a translator of English-language literature who has received particular recognition for his translations of works concerning jazz, acknowledged by the Encyclopedia of Jazz as Poland's most outstanding translator of jazz literature. Glondys is the creator of the project Fascynacje, a multinational arts and culture-oriented web portal, and is currently involved with its development. Aleksander Glondys debuted on the musical stage around 1969 in the group Dynastie, followed by Genesis, playing with his brother as well as Krzysztof and Roman Nehrebecki, sons of the renowned Polish animator Władysław Nehrebecki, who provided the real-life inspiration for that artist's (and arguably Poland's) two most famous cartoon characters, the eponymous heroes of the animated series Bolek i Lolek . In 1979 he was co-founder of the Jacek Kasza Quartet, later known as Support.
