NotTwo Records

The city of Kraków, Poland is as far from Jazz Meccas of New York and Chicago as music of Polish-French composer Frédéric Chopin differs from free jazz improvisation.

So, it might come as a surprise, that one of the most creative forces in contemporary music of the 21st century made its home just here, in Kraków. We are taking about Not Two Records, an independent record label specializing in contemporary, improvised, free jazz; whose creative output and growing influence is incomparable to any other jazz outlet in the world today.

Not Two Records was created in 1998 by Marek Winiarski, a jazz aficionado with a degree in metallurgical engineering and an entrepreneurial spirit. Previously, Winiarski co-founded and ran one of Poland's first independent labels GOWI Records. After splitting off from his GOWI business partner and declining an offer from one the major international labels to run their operations in Poland, Winiarski decided to name his new outlet “Not Two”, to emphasize his need for independence and reliance on his own esthetic and free choices.
