I have been to Kansas City several times before and love the city and its jazz history. My experience this time around was amazing and beautiful. The energy, unifying spirit, and the love of the people inspired me. 'Chiefs Kingdom' celebrates this incredible city, its legacy, and its people. —Sylwester Ostrowski
Sylwester Ostrowski, new single “Chiefs Kingdom" featuring Bobby Watson is available on August 28, 2020, under the recording label Agora. Fans can enjoy the music on iTunes, Tidal, and Spotify.

“Chiefs Kingdom" is a piece of celebratory and uplifting music honoring Kansas City, its Jazz legacy, and the 2020 Super Bowl Champions, the Chiefs. Ostrowski was in Kansas City for a project celebrating Parker’s Centennial in partnership with Jazz Sister Cities during the championship game in February 2020. Together with Kansas City, Ostrowski experienced an electrifying moment as he watched the victory of the Chiefs after fifty years. His mind went into action, capturing the moment with music. Writing from a friend’s basement, he brought together two Kansas City legacies, Jazz and football. The outcome is the single “Chiefs Kingdom."

“I have been to Kansas City several times before and love the city and its jazz history. My experience this time around was amazing and beautiful. The energy, unifying spirit, and the love of the people inspired me. “Chiefs Kingdom" celebrates this incredible city, its legacy, and its people," said Sylwester Ostrowski.

“Sylwester was in Kansas City the day our beloved Chiefs won its firsts Super Bowl in 50 years. His “Chiefs Kingdom" perfectly expresses his joy and excitement on that historic day," said Bobby Watson.

Ostrowski strategically brought together Jazz artists from three generations. Bobby Watson on alto saxophone and Eric Allen on drums. Sylwester Ostrowski on tenor saxophone and Dominique Sanders on bass. Jakub Mizeracki on guitar. Dominique Sanders and Ostrowski are the music producers, and the recording took place at Make Believe Studios in Omaha, Nebraska. The first live performance of “Chiefs Kingdom" took place on July 31, 2020, on Onet Rano, one of the largest mornings live shows in Poland.

The release of “Chiefs Kingdom" is a testament to the power of Jazz to bridge cultures and unite communities globally.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
