JAZZ JAMBOREE 63 (LP)
12" Vinyl D
Krzysztof Komeda live at Jazz Jamboree Festival in Warsaw, October 1963.
This is the the legendary Krzystof Komeda Quintet caught live at the Jazz Jamboree Festival in Warsaw in 1963. A marvelous combo featuring some of the greatest Polish Jazz musicians such as Tomasz Stanko - trumpet, Michal Urbaniak - tenor sax, Maciej Suzin - bass and Czeslaw Bartowski - drums. Komeda, Stanko and Urbaniak were sort of pioneers who effectively opened up a way for Jazz in Poland. Komeda's fluent modern Jazz conception was a perfect synthesis between the American influence and a certain Slavic lyricism. The album includes an astonishing version of "Ballad From Knife In Water" from Komeda's soundtrack for the 1962 Roman Polanski's movie. A major statement in the East- European music history.
