Rare Jazz/Fusion Gems From Polish Vaults vol. 2

Obviously not giving up on digging into crates and archives. This is the 7th in a series of Rare Jazz/Fusion Gems From Eastern European Vaults. This time revisiting Poland for the second time. Previous volume has covered 60s and was concentrated on some straight ahead jazz, spiritual, free, modal and all the strongest points in Polish Jazz at that time (trying not to repeat already re-issued tracks) but around the world as well. This volume should be more relaxed and with more vocals and scatting, funk, Latin and jazz-rock influences and flavours. Still it is compiled in a way that you should be able to sit comfortable and listen to the whole album as it was done by only one artist. You can also listen to it in a collector¿s way and try to analyse Polish music of that period, but also you can just use it for you dance parties. Quite universal album that should be able to cover all your musical needs either you being professional or novice in this kind of music.
Most of the originals are very rare like Novi Singer¿s 7¿ with Corea¿s Fiesta or £100+ LP by RTV Lodz Big Band. None of them comes cheaply on originals. Some of them are well known tunes in certain circles like jazz dance classic Prostachny Gestach by band called CRASH and GRAZYNA LOBASEWSKA that was played at many of London¿s jazz dance happenings (and also appeared on one white label bootleg in early 90s) but most of them stayed obscure and known only to some hard-core collectors and explorers. Here it¿s being followed by funky scat vocal tune by KRYSTYNA PRONKO. NOVI continues with scatting in Fiesta that also moves us into some Latin, jazz dance waters. Akalei by MAZUR smoothly follows the same path using the same ingredients: scatting + some fast Latin rhythms. It was recorded live at Jazz Nad Odr¿ festival in 1977 with the Crash band. Third in a row jazz dance, scat tune is by jazz-rock band LABORATORIUM with some amizing synthy-like vocals. BEMIBEM brings some sunshine, happiness and kind of hippy feeling to this compilation. I just see flowers all around. NAHORNY¿s Holding Hands has that ¿library feel¿ in it, almost like coming from one of the KPM releases. ORKIESTRA PR I TV LODZI showed that Poland had the equivalent to Erwin Len or RTB Big Band, that powerful Funky Fusion Big Band sound. KAWKA was one of the Novi Singers and Sky¿s The Limit was taken from his solo album. Another vocal tune, this time on a funky/soulful side. Back to some Latin waters with Straight Life by KRZYSTOF SADOWSKY from his amazing, real cosmic ¿On Kosmodromie¿ album. JERZY MILIAN became quite a familiar name around but still there are many tracks by the man that needs to be discovered. Astrobolid, featuring Novi Singers, being just one of them. Goodby is taken from the same KAROLAK¿s album that gave us Why Not Samba and was missed by many who hadn¿t been patient enough to wait for the funky break in the middle of the track. One for the Hammond fans. This collection is both for your soul and you dancing shoes. It¿s up to you what you gonna use it for. Both, I guess?
