Arp LifeZ Bezpieczna Szybkoscia ... LP
Polskie Nagrania/GAD (Poland), Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Czeslaw BartkowskiDrums Dream ... CD
Polskie Nagrania (Poland), 1976. New Copy ... $15.99
A drum-heavy set from Polish percussionist Czeslaw Bartkowski – mostly solo on most tracks, but with occasional accompaniment on trumpet, electric piano, and soprano sax on a few of the fuller numbers – plus some great funky big band arrangements at the end! The sound is often spare and moody, but also melodic – similar to some of Max Roach's solo percussion efforts – in that Bartkowski isn't too concerned with going too far out, or getting too free – just working drums and percussion within new modes in jazz! The last few tracks on the album flesh out the sound with fuller orchestrations from Jan Ptaszyn Wroblewski – in a way that's almost funky at times – and other players on the record include Tomasz Szukalski, Tomasz Stanko, and Adam Makowicz. Titles include "Drums Dream", "FAO", "Druga Swobodna Etiuda", "Rozmowa Ze Sliwka Bez Pestek", "Good Times Bad Times", and "Lullaby For Tiny Chinamen". CD

Ewa BemBe a Man ... CD
Polskie Nagrania (Poland), 1981. New Copy ... $13.99
Straight ahead and swinging jazz vocals from Ewa Bem – a session that's sung both in English and her native Polish, and which features backings by the lively Swing Session combo, led by trumpeter Henryk Majewski! Tracks are mostly short and upbeat, and although the standards here are familiar and done with a tone that's a bit too eighties at times, the other Polish numbers are pretty darn great – colored with deeper tones and more imagination than the English numbers, in a way that makes us wish we understood the language! Titles include "Tylko Dni", "Wyznanie Wieczorne", "Dzien Dobry Mr Blues", "Groovin High", "The Man I Love", and "Rob To Co Chcesz". CD

Breakout70A ... LP
Polskie Nagrania (Poland), 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $24.99
An early gem from this hip Polish group – a quintet on this outing, and working in a mode that brings a lot more to the music than just a set of blues-inspired roots! The group have some great elements going on here – including sax and flute from the great Wlodzimerz Nahorny, whose lines at times almost have these avant angles that are quite a great blend with the fuzzy guitars and romping drums – and the set also features excellent vocals from Mira Kubasinska,whose pairing with singer Tadeusz Nalepa really makes for an unusual vibe! There's also some nice rhythms, too – kind of in a funky blues mode, which really gives the album a strong kick – on titles that include "Prezmijanie", "Dziwny Weekend", "Przestroga", "Piekno", and "Zapraszamy Na Korride".

BreakoutBlues ... LP
Polskie Nagrania (Poland), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
An enigmatic set from Poland – one that's definitely got the bluesy touches promised in the title, but which also served up some other compelling sounds as well! Breakout's not just a straight blues rock combo – at least not in the mode of US or UK groups of the time – as they use their initial blues inspiration here for some other expressive modes as well, almost getting a bit pensive at times, in ways that make for a really surprising set. The guitar is great throughout, and the Polish vocals are pretty interesting too – and titles include "If I Were The Wind", "Misery Came To Me", "She Went A Different Road", "Tonight", and "Color My Dreams".

BreakoutKamienie ... CD
Polskie Nagrania (Poland), 1974. New Copy ... $11.99
A 70s classic by one of the greatest Polish groups of the time – the mighty Breakout, who work here in a nicely raw, nicely spare version of blues-inspired rock! The group's got plenty of Chicago influence on both the guitar and harmonica – but they never use those instruments in any way that's too slavish, and instead mix them with their own Polish lyrics in an evolved style that really recalls some of the hipper UK groups of this nature from the start of the 70s – particularly those who were pushing past the roots into their own sort of territory. Titles include "Pojde Prosto", "Spiekota", "Czulosc Niose Tobie", "Kamiene", and "Kolo Mego Okna". CD

BreakoutKarate ... LP
Polskie Nagrania (Poland), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
A smoking little album from this hip Polish combo of the early 70s – a group that may well boast some of the best rootsy guitar work on the Eastern side of the Iron Curtain at the time! Breakout take plenty of lessons from American blues – and from the then-contemporary generation who were digging their influences – and used those roots to help deliver a wickedly heavy brew – part hard rock, part bluesy inflections – with some well-crafted guitar lines stepping right out front in the mix, and rumbling way down low to groove the album up from the bottom. Titles include "Noca Puka Ktos", "Takie Moje Miasto Jest", "Daje Ci Prog", "Jest Gdzies Taki Dom", and "Karate" – a great long jammer! LP, Vinyl record album

BreakoutNa Drugim Brzegu Teczy ... CD
Polskie Nagrania (Poland), 1969. New Copy ... $15.99
The earliest album we've ever seen from Breakout – a Polish group who are already out to make a very strong mark in modern music! Part of their uniqueness here comes from their language and lyrics – which are a nice contrast to the English sung by so many other European hard rock groups of the time – but they've also got their own spin on the mix of jazz and blues elements that were taking place with some of the best UK acts in the late 60s – using the sax and flute of Wlodzimierz Nahorny in some really great ways, mixing it with the fuzzy guitar of leader Tadeusz Nalepa, who also sings and plays harmonica – and setting the whole thing to some really romping rhythms that almost get a bit funky at times. The set also features a bit of vocals from female singer Mira Kubasinska – and titles include "Masz Na To Czas", "Czy Mine Jeszcze Pamietasz", "Wolanie Przez Dunajec", "Poszlabym Za Toba", and "Gdzie Chcesz Isc".

BreakoutNOL ... CD
Polskie Nagrania (Poland), 1975. New Copy ... $11.99
An album titled "niezidentyfikowany obiekt latajacy" – which is the Polish phrase for UFO – and a set that definitely has Breakout really soaring out into space on their own sort of energy! The group still have that mixture of hard rock and blues from the start, but there's also maybe some more freewheeling expression going on here – with a stronger use of organ, which spins out in strong lines, and opens up some jazzier elements in the music! The approach isn't really prog, although certainly echoes the tighter side of that genre – and the group features vocals from both Mira Kubasinska and Tadeusz Nalepa – on titles that include "Taki Wiatr", "Biel", "Gdzie Mnie Wioda", "Co To Za Czlowiek", "Sluchaj Rytmu", and "W Pochodzie Codziennosci".

BreakoutZagiel Ziemi ... CD
Polskie Nagrania (Poland), 1979. New Copy ... $11.99
Great work from Breakout – a group who really know how to make the best of their male and female singer – both of whom are pictured on the cover! Both Mira Kubasinska and Tadeusz Nalepa sung together on many previous albums by the group, but there seems to be even more vocal interplay between the pair here – including some trading of lines that works well with the bluesy currents in the music, which continue to get just the right kick from the bass and drums. Titles include "Ile Olimpiad", "Dlaczego Walcze", "Maraton", "W Tlumie Stadionu", and "To Nas Laczy". CD

BreakoutZol ... CD
Polskie Nagrania (Poland), 1979. New Copy ... $11.99
A compelling late 70s effort from the great Polish group Breakout – a set that still has the group sounding a lot more gritty than so many Anglo acts who started out in similar territory, but got very polished as the 80s approached! Instead, Breakout work here in a stark quartet format – with guitar, bass, and drums used in very inventive ways – still with the force of their blues-inspired hard rock roots, but really past more familiar modes – on surprisingly creative tunes that really make the best of vocals from Tadeusz Nalepa and Mira Kubasinska. Given the 1979 date, the whole thing's really out of time – maybe making the best use of the Iron Curtain to help prevent any too-commercial pressures of the period. Titles include "Idzie Wenus", "Ona Odeszla STad", "Co Tam Za Mgla", "W Cieniue Bluesa", and "Pozegnalny Blues". CD

Complot Of SixComplot Of Six – Spisek Szesciu ... CD
Polskie Nagrania (Poland), 1975. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A groundbreaking Polish combo from the 70s – one with a name that makes them sound more like a revolutionary organization than a musical group – quite fitting, given the revolutionary style of their music! These guys use some elements from fusion – including guitar and Fender Rhodes – but they also stretch their sound out more in a way that seems inspired by avant spiritual jazz from the US – almost a post-Coltrane vibe that's different from the modern jazz territory explored by other Polish groups in years before! The leader of the group is Wlodzimierz Winski, who plays tenor and baritone sax – and other musicians include Zbigniew Czwojda on trumpet, Andrzej Pluszcz on guitar, Leszek Paszko on trombone, Adam Bielawski on drums, and Boguslaw Razik on both piano and Fender Rhodes. Titles include the side-long "Wizje" suite – plus "Amorphus", "Epitaphium", and "Pieprezem I Sola". CD

Extra BallBirthday ... CD
Polskie Nagrania (Poland), 1976. New Copy ... $15.99
Spacious fusion from Extra Ball – one of Poland's best electric jazz ensembles of the late 70s, working here in a style that's dynamic, yet not as overly jamming as some of the group's rock-influenced contemporaries on the European scene! Leader of the group Jaroslaw Smietana plays guitar with a warmly chromatic mode – a sound that's somewhere in the vast space between Wes Montgomery and Pat Metheny, and which seems able to traverse that distance with ease as the tunes roll on. Other instrumentation includes electric piano, bass, drums, and some especially great work on saxes from Andrzej Olejniczak – whose tone here really grounds the record and gives it its best soulful moments. Titles include "Maryna's Dance", "Birthday", "A Journey To The Mountains", "The Lucky Unlucky Man", "The Seven", and "Hengelo Almelo Deventer". CD

Jazz CarriersCarry On ... CD
Polskie Nagrania (Poland), 1973. New Copy ... $14.99
A sweet electric combo from 70s Poland – one who move away from more familiar fusion modes of the Eastern European scene, to a style that's almost a reworked version of 60s soul jazz! The groove here feels like that end of 60s moment when reed players were trying to get a bit more electric – particularly players like Eddie Harris or Sonny Stitt – but the Jazz Carriers also have a richer sense of songwriting and musical ideas, and do way more here than just electrify the past. Instead, they make great use of the twin reeds of Henryk Miskiewicz on alto and Zbigniew Jaremiko on tenor and alto, alongside Fender Rhodes from Pawel Perlinski – used in ways that hint at modern moments, but still stay in soulful territory – thanks to the addition of congas and additional percussion next to the bass and drums. Titles include "Carrier's Blues", "Supplement", "Frytki", "Bezdroza", and "Carry On". CD

Kazimierz JonkiszTiri Taka ... LP
Polskie Nagrania (Poland), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
Soulful fusion from Poland – a group led by drummer Kazimierz Jonkisz, and featuring piano, soprano sax, bass, and a bit of electric violin! The groove is a bit in the Michal Urbaniak mode – although not as way out, with a good focus on ensemble modes on the heads of each tune – similar to American soulful fusion of the time – before the band then makes their way through some longer solo moments. The feel is often surprisingly rich and full – a bit like some of the best R&B-tinged fusion coming out of the US in the mid to late 70s – especially on the Columbia label – and the players here are all top-shelf, and really open up as the tunes roll on. There's none of the too-jamming modes that can sometimes show up in more rock-based fusion records from the Eastern scene – and instead, there's a sensitivity here that shows up even on the more upbeat numbers. Titles include "We're All Waiting", "Tiritaka", "For Slawosz", "Joewer", and "For Marc". LP, Vinyl record album
