A few facts… It’s important to remember, that in 1974, Michal Urbaniak’s band „Fusion“, played music rich in melody and irregular rhythm inspired by Urban Jazz & R&B music combined at times with his ethnic roots (polish folk music). Since those days, Michal plays on a five string violin especially made for him, on a synthesizer violin, saxophones and on a lyricon (an electric saxophone instrument). This original and creative,and very inovative music called Fusion was met with much enthusiasm in America and around the world. Michal Urbaniak , known as one of the pioneers of Fusion music became an extremely popular artist. This exceptionally well received album „Fusion“ for Columbia Records, made it possible for the artist/composer to continue recording albums in similar styles, such as; „Atma“ and „Fusion III“ which were the leading projects on Michal Urbaniak’s path of success both as Columbia recording artist and worldwide touring atraction. He easily promoted his new sound, the unusual combination of Polish folk with beloved black music and with electric rock sounds.. In 1975 – 1989, the group „Michal Urbaniak Fusion“ not only attracted manymusic lovers, fans, exceptional jazz musicians, but also created a community of young musicians that later played with artist’s such as Miles Davis, Whether Report, Santana and Sting.
