Stan GetzStan Getz In Warsaw ... CD
Polskie Nagrania (Poland), 1960/1974. Used ... $12.99
Rare work by Stan Getz – recorded in Poland, in 2 different sessions! The first 5 tracks on the CD feature work by Getz with a Polish rhythm section – performing live in Warsaw in 1960, right at a key point in his career, when he was opening up his sound a lot from the iciness of the 50s – letting in freer modes of expression, and going for a slightly warmer sound that was really great. The 5 tracks on that set feature Getz blowing with a clarity and exploratory sound that we wouldn't have expected until much later in the 60s – even though the tracks are standards like "Out Of Nowhere", "The Folks Who Live On The Hill", "But Not For Me", and "Darn That Dream". The last 2 tracks on the session are from a magical mid 70s point – and feature a quartet with Albert Dailey on piano, Billy Hart on drums, and George Mraz on bass. The centerpiece of that set is a masterful 15 minute reading of Chick Corea's "La Fiesta" – a tune that Getz really used to make cook – and the last track is a version of the bossa standard "Desafinado".

Peter Herbolzheimer/Gustav BromJazz Jamboree 75 – Vol 1 (label sleeve) ... LP

Wlodzimierz NahornyZapach Psiej Siersci (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Polskie Nagrania/GAD (Poland), 1981. New Copy ... $16.99
Really beautiful music from Wlodzimierz Nahorny – an artist we know mostly as a Polish jazz musician and saxophonist, but who turns out to have an equally great ear for film music as well! The style here is lush, but restrained – balanced beautifully with lots of traces of jazz, as you'd get in the best soundtrack work of Johnny Mandel, particularly during his post-Sandpiper years – that sophisticated approach that's never too easygoing, and which has a wonderful way of setting up very visual moments in music, through delicate use of tone and color. Many numbers have light strings, with core acoustic passages and solos – and the CD adds in some additional bonus tracks and source music not used for the film – really augmenting this already-rare soundtrack! Titles include "Koti/Tesknota", "Pocalunek 1", "Bialy Prosek", "Dyskoteka", "Orient", "Swing", and "Samotnosc". CD

Novi SingersFive, Four, Three (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Polskie Nagrania/GAD (Poland), 1974. New Copy ... $16.99
One of the hippest albums ever from this incredible Polish vocal group – and that's saying a lot, because all of their albums are pretty darn hip! This set has the Novi Singers working in a freer, more open-ended mode than on some of their earlier records – hitting some territory that verges on the Karin Krog modes of the time, with lots of nice spacey touches, and going for some other numbers that have a funkier big band sort of approach – even cooler and groovier than the group's previous albums, including their classic set for MPS! Instrumentation brings in some sweet Fender Rhodes at times – with a fusion undercurrent that's subdued, and never gets in the way of the incredible harmonies – and titles include "Bongolo", "On The Road", "Five Four Three", "What Thing Is Love", "Yellow Blue & White", "Off Season", and "Dotyk". CD has great sound, notes, and four bonus tracks too – "Feel Kind Of Low", "Be My King", "Basen" and "Klown I Skrzypce". CD

Novi SingersNovi Sing Chopin ... LP
Polskie Nagrania (Poland), 1971. Very Good ... $9.99
2 of Poland's greatest musical assets – together on one album! The groovy groovy Novi Singers turn their talents towards the work of Frederic Chopin – singing his compositions in a jazzy harmony style that's quite similar to the 60s classics of The Swingle Singers! The approach is really great – as Chopin's warm and romantic style of writing is a perfect match for Novi's magical vocal harmonies. Novi are singing here in all-acapella style – and titles include "Preludium", "Mazurek", "Scherzo", and "Walc". LP, Vinyl record album
(Vinyl is nice overall, but has a click on one short track.)

✨✧ Jorgen Leth & John Tchicai/Igor CaplinskiJazz Jamboree 1962 – No 4 (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Polskie Nagrania/Jazzhus Disk (Japan), 1962. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best early recordings from this legendary European Jazz Festival – and a set that also features some amazing young work from the great John Tchicai – already making a big name for himself overseas! Side one features Tchicai on alto in a group put together by jazz critic Jorgen Leth – who doesn't play in the group himself, but has an ear excellent enough to also include Max Burel on baritone sax, Niels Bronsted on piano, Bjorn Alke on bass, and Rune Carlsson on drums. The two tracks on that side – "Blue Monk" and "Night In Tunisia" – feature great extended solos by Tchicai and Bruel – a player we only know from a few other records, but who reallys parkes here. The second half of the set features a group led by guitarist Igor Caplinsky – playing in a cool, breezy style alongside the tight sounds of a trio that features Wojciech Karolak on piano, Juliusz Sandecki on bass, and Andrzej Dabrowski on some mighty lively drums! The combo plays versions of "Out Of Nowhere" and "Moonlight In Vermont". CD

✨✧ Wladyslaw KomendarekWladyslaw Komendarek (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Polskie Nagrania/GAD (Poland), Mid 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A cool keyboardist from the 80s scene in Poland – working here on all the best Roland, Korg, and Arp instruments of the time – and with this lean, stripped-down groove that's almost got a Kraftwerk feel overall! The music's never too cheesy – with none of those "too easy" 80s rhythm programs that always made for too much stiffness – and instead, Wladyslaw really keeps this spontaneous feel in some of his keyboard work – much looser and more groovy than lots of the other keyboard-heavy soundtrack or sound library material at the time, yet still never commercial or kitschy either. The balance is hard to describe, but totally perfect throughout – and the record's a gem if you dig any sort of 80s sound library music, and even some of the best underground electro work of the period too. Titles include "Super Express", "Ranek Nad Wisla", "Tesknota Zeglarza", "Polowanie W Puszcy Bialej", "Krople Rosy", and "Podwodny Spacer". CD also features four bonus tracks from the same sessions for the album – including "Morskie Figle", "Droga Do Sahary", and "Samotna Pacynka". CD

✨✧ Jerzy MilianBazaar (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Polskie Nagrania/GAD (Poland), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An incredible record from Jerzy Milian – easily one of the hippest vibes players in Europe in the 60s, and a key member of the Polish jazz scene that also included Krzystof Komeda and Tomasz Stanko! The album's an extremely evocative session that features Milian's vibes and marimba mostly in a spare trio setting – stepping out with a highly chromatic tone that has echoes of Bobby Hutcherson's straighter Blue Note work of the 60s, but which also flows out with a unique sense of color and timing. A few tracks feature great wordless vocals from singer Ewa Wanat of the Novi Singers – drifting along with the tunes in a haunting way that has a bit of a soundtrack feel – and the album also features a bit of guest flute from Janusz Mych. Titles include "Bazar W Aszchabadzie", "Tempus Jazz 67", "Serial Rag", "Valse Ex Cathedra", and "My Favourite Band". CD features four rare bonus tracks – "Valse Ex Cathedra", "Song Polly", "Nokturn", and "Serial Rag". CD

✨✧ Arp LifeJumbo Jet/Z Bezpiecznq Szybkosciq (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Polskie Nagrania/GAD (Poland), Late 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sweet sweet grooves from 70s Poland – played by a studio combo who've got a definite flair for a disco-styled sound! The set features two full albums by the group – the first of which is their legendary Jumbo Jet record – a massive blend of keyboards, light strings, and other rhythmic elements – all at a level that easily rivals some of the best clubby styles from the other side of the Iron Curtain at the time! Most tracks are instrumental, and often just get a bit of female chorus elements bubbling through the mix – in this kind of Euro sexy style that's mighty nice. The overall sound is more Euro or Canadian disco – but still quite nice – and the set includes the funky number "Bu Bu", plus "Motor Rock", "Olo Boogie", "Hotel Victoria", "Baby Bump", "Jumbo Jet", and "Apolobamba". Next is the group's follow-up set – Z Bezpiecznq Szybkosciq – a record that you might spend a week trying to pronounce, but one that will grab you right away with its sound! Arp Life stick strongly in their best clubby modes here – mixing the keyboards of their name with some sweet disco-styled rhythms, and the occasional female chorus vocal, in a style that's pretty great if you dig the dancefloor sounds coming from France, Germany, and Italy in the late 70s. Most tracks are instrumentals – the set includes solos on alto sax and harmonica at times – and the album was only ever issued as a cassette back in the 70s, which makes this version a great surprise. Titles include "Akwarele", "Papagayo", "Bam Bam Bam", "San Jose", "Klik Klak", "Slon I Mrowka", and "Tango Mundial". CD features four bonus tracks too – "Bump", "Bilbao", "Adelajda", and "Tonpress".

✨✧ Jerzy MilianSemiramida – Trio In Concert 1966 to 1969 ... CD
Polskie Nagrania/GAD (Poland), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Seminal sounds from one of the hippest vibists of the 60s – the great Jerzy Milian, who was easily Europe's answer to Bobby Hutcherson at the time! The material here comes from a few key performances by the Milian trio at the Jazz Jamboree festival in Poland – sort of the Eastern European version of Newport or Montreux – and the sound is very open and freewheeling, with this equal balance between the vibes, bass, and drums that show a lot of "new thing" tendencies in Jerzy's music at the time! Milian made plenty of great studio records over the years, but these live sides may well be some of his most revolutionary – a rare glimpse at a musician who should have had a much bigger impact globally at the time, had it not been for the politics of the Cold War. Titles include "Semiramida", "Ballada", "Monument", "Summer Nights", "My Favorite Band", "Serpent's Tooth", "Vales Ex Cathedra", and "Program". (One thing – note that the title track "Semiramida" has some technical issues – the recording quality ebbs and flows a bit, although the music is great.) CD
