Poland is a big cauldron in what concerns jazz and contemporary music. Conscious of this crossed particularity, saxophonist, composer and producer Marek Pospieszalski decided to arrange pieces of 12 great Polish classical authors of the 20th Century to clear up their respective influences to the present-day musical reality of that European country, be it jazz (he is one of the top players in Poland of this genre), collective improvisation, club music, noise or sound art. The result is this double album with almost two hours of duration, reuniting mind-puzzling versions of scores by Jan Krenz, Tadeusz Baird, Kazimierz Serocki, Tomasz Sikorski, Witold Szalonek, Bogusław Schaeffer, Marek Stachowski, Andrzej Panufnik, Roman Palester, Zbigniew Rudziński, Włodzimierz Kotoński and Zygmunt Krauze. Very rich in terms of timbre and color, using unusual instruments as an old office Scandinavian piano or a reel-to-reel tape recorder, this precious release will amaze you for sure.
