**2020 stock** A fantastic electric session from the 70s Polish scene – a record that not only features freewheeling trumpet from Tomasz Stanko, and sweet Fender Rhodes from Adam Mackowicz, but also includes some very inventive work on drums and percussion from the great Czelaw Bartkowski! All three players are at the top of their game here – artists who have a strong knowledge of the outside territory of jazz, but also often work a bit more inside – so that their music here can be open and exploratory, but also come back to more soulful, swinging territory too! Most tracks are long, and have the sort of textural energy you'd know especially from Stanko's work Tomasz Stanko was considered the first free-jazz trumpeter in Europe. He debuted at the end of the 1950s in Krakow and in the1960s joined Krzysztof Komeda’s quintet, later recording a masterpieceof European jazz, the album “Astigmatic”. In the early 1970s he was part of the international free jazz sceneand performed at major European festivals with his Tomasz Stanko Quintet. In the 1980s Stanko played with Cecil Taylor, and led his own bands that incorporated reggae, latino, electronic, and rap inspirations.This album – unavailable for 40 years – was newly remastered for optimal sound.
