Classic cuts from a famous Polish TV show – mostly pulled from the rich catalog of the German Sonoton sound library! The music here is very heavy on keyboards and tight, dramatic grooves – music that's often in the best modes that so few sound libraries could manage at the time – a style that still hangs on to the higher quality inspirations from 70s funk or soundtrack material, without as much of the clunk that more commercial libraries ran into. Things are also usually full and focused, too – still quite electric and electronic, but without any too-dreamy soundscapes or new-agey bits. The book features full notes on the show and the music in both English and Polish – and titles include "Sound Tide" and "Speedy" by The Milan Pilar Group, "That's Fancy 1" and "Threat To Research" by Sammy Burdson, "Biopulse 2" and "Genesis 1" by Claude Larson, "Back From Wonderland" and "Alexandria" by Mladen Franko, "Star Drops" and "Foreground" by Jeff Newmann, "International Scoop" by Ted Atking & Alain French, and "Touch Tone Keyboard" by Sam Sklar & Gus Galbraith. Also includes one older British cut – "Visitation" by Mike Vickers – used as the main theme of the show! CD
Rare work from Jimmy Smith – issued here properly for maybe the first time ever! These recordings are early pre-Blue Note sides by Jimmy – originally recorded for the Bruce and Power record labels, and issued over the years on a number of dodgy knock-off labels, without any proper notations, and (usually) pretty terrible sound. Jimmy's in a hard grooving R&B mode here – playing with all the revolutionary approach he brought to his early Blue Note sides, but focusing a bit more on the swing and less on the solo. A few tunes have Don Gardner on vocals – and there's a total of 16 tracks, all wonderfully remastered, that include "Skokiaan", "Dancing On The Ceiling", "Sonotone Bounce", "Misery", "Jimmy's Swing", "Tell Me", "Jimmy's Jam", and "Jughead".
