Grazyna Auguscik is one of the most unique and outstanding jazz vocalist of our times. Grazyna's musicality and gorgeous interpretations of works prove that she can swing Chopin's music in a most exuberant and profound way.

The human voice is the most subtle, complex, fragile, yet forceful and seductive instrument to express, in the deepest way, musical ideas, and meanings. There is no surprise that some of the most profound music making is coming from Grazyna's voice, reaching new heights of expressions in Chopin's music.
