Krzysztof Zgraja —
Laokoon ... CD Polskie Nagrania (Poland), 1981. New Copy ...
Out Of Stock
A sweet set of flute-based jazz from the Polish scene – recorded in the early 80s by Krzysztof Zgraja, but with this freewheeling, open vibe that's maybe more like the early 70s work of BjornJasonLindh or Chris Hinze, mixed with the strong sense of texture of Hubert Laws on CTI! As with all of those players, there's almost a post-jazz approach going on here – as Zgraja can swing sometimes, get funky at others, but also open up these colors and tonal passages that are extremely compelling – especially when echo and overdub come into play, and make for an even more expansive sound overall! The group features both acoustic and electric bass, Fender Rhodes, and drums – and Zbigniew Namyslowski guests on alto on one track. Titles include "La Concha", "Alex Funky", "Waiting For", "Fin De Siecle", and "Laokoon". CD
