Jazz pianist and composer of film music, by profession a doctor of laryngology. The precursor of modern jazz in Poland. He is mostly known for sound tracks for over 60 movies, including Roman Polański's films: 'Knife in Water' (1962), 'Disgust' (1965), ''The Trap' (1966) and 'Rosemary's Baby' (1968). Recognized as a father of modern Polish jazz he worked with numbers of musicians such as [a=Jerzy Milian], [a=Tomasz Stańko] and [a=Jan Ptaszyn Wróblewski].

In December 1968, in Los Angeles, Komeda had a tragic accident which led to a haematoma of the brain. He was pushed off an escarpment by writer Marek Hłasko during a drinking party. Medical treatment in the US hospital did not rescue his life. After having been transported home to Poland in coma and in terminal state, he died.

Born: 27th April 1931 in Poznań, Poland. Died: 23rd April 1969 in Warszawa, Poland.

He was married to [a=Zofia Komeda Trzcińska].
