The “real” Tutu is the title of an album recorded by Miles Davis in cooperation with Marcus Miller, an album which was intended to be a protest against apartheid. It was recorded in 1986. The Warsaw Tutu is the name of an ideal place to spend a nice, quiet evening with friends. For me Tutu was discovered a few years ago by a good friend (and an even better jazz composer) of mine. Since that time we have spent many invaluable, half-sleepless nights in Tutu, a small mecca for smooth jazz fans in Warsaw.
OK, the place is not too big, well, there is not even a real stage inside. But the atmosphere during concerts makes this place jazzy and warmly welcoming and makes you want to visit it every free evening (check their website for more information).
Decent, well-priced food, leisurely drinks and smooth sounds drifting from loudspeakers will certainly put you into a great, smooth mood after a long day at work. Maybe apartheid is not much of a topic in today’s Warsaw, but good music certainly is.
