Swinging with Sinatra is an artistic project, which has already been performed on numerous occasions and conquers scenes in Poland and abroad. The abundance of arrangements prepared by K. Herdzin, combined with the elegance and vocal artistry of J. Wist certainly guarantee the success of the project’s Toruń edition.

JAREK WIST – vocalist – his career began with winning a TV music competition ‘Szansa na Sukces’ (A Chance for Success), and the publicity that entailed allowed him to cooperate with many well-known vocalists and musicians. Recording a cover version of the song Fresh by Kool And The Gang opened up new possibilities for him – the song made its way to the album Pozytywne wibracje vol.8 (Positive Vibrations Vol.8), where Jarek among such artists as Stevie Wonder, Diana Krall or Paul Anka was the only Polish performer. Jarek’s next success was the title of ‘hope and discovery of the year’, which he was honoured with at the 2007 Frederick Gala for his song Między Słowami (Between Words). Shortly afterwards, he performed as a finalist at Sopot’s Top Trendy Festival with his next single, Zawsze wracaj (Always come back to me). We can see him on stage as a soloist in the most interesting and entertaining of projects. He is both a vocalist and a co-creator of one of the most interesting musical projects of late – Swinging with Sinatra – which has won hearts of the audiences all over the country. Jarek Wist is the author of most of the lyrics in the songs he performs, and he constantly seeks inspirations and creates new compositions. He performs all over the country, both with jazz projects in various forms and with his own new repertoire. He has given two large international concert tours, including a concert in Paris and two trans-American tours – in 2016 a series of concerts in Brazil – Brasilia, Rio de Janeiro and Curitiba, in 2017 in Washington, USA and again in Brazil.
