Glob Unity Orchestra

Alexander von Schlippenbach / Glob Unity Orchestra feat. Tomasz Stańko

Europe’s oldest improvising orchestra, it was set up by Alexander von Schlippenbach more than half a century ago. Its beginnings are closely associated with Berlin Jazz Festival. In the spring of 1966, Schlippenbach was commissioned by the Festival curators, one of whom was Joachim Ernst Berendt, to compose a piece and perform it during the approaching third edition of that event. Since its foundation, Globe Unity’s line-up has changed many times, and included the greatest improvised music artists. During its first Polish concert, which took place at Ad Libitum festival, they were joined by Tomasz Stańko, who had previously already collaborated with that band.
