Salena JonesSalena Jones ... LP
Polskie Nagrania (Poland), Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Hip vocals from a British singer who never got her due on this side of the Atlantic – the always-swinging Salena Jones, a vocalist who was almost England's answer to Nancy Wilson! The set has Salena working with arranger/producer Keith Mansfield – a great choice for Salena's talents, as Keith always kept things hip and groovy – way out of the sleepier territory of other vocalists from the period. Mansfield brings plenty of his sound library experience to these tracks – nicely inflecting the orchestrations with a good sense of rhythm on most tracks, in a way that also brings out Salena's most soulful side, even on covers of more familiar older tunes!

Wladyslaw KomendarekWladyslaw Komendarek (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Polskie Nagrania/GAD (Poland), Mid 80s. New Copy ... $16.99
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 MilianSemiramida – Trio In Concert 1966 to 1969 ... CD
Polskie Nagrania/GAD (Poland), Late 60s. New Copy ... $10.99
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

Krzysztof SadowskiThree Thousand Points (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Polskie Nagrania/GAD (Poland), Early 70s. New Copy ... $16.99
One of the hippest records we've ever heard from this Polish keyboardist – a set that has him stepping past the simple Hammond modes of his earlier years, and into a realm of much freer-flowing fusion! Sadowski still mostly plays Hammond on the set – but also a bit of Fender Rhodes and ring modulator as well – all on long tracks that feature soprano sax, flute, and lots of nicely stepping basslines. The style's often a bit more righteous than it is funky, and both sides come from different live performances in the mid 70s – the latter of which features some really cool vocal effects from Liliana Urbanska – in a hip grooving mode that's pretty great! Titles include "Syrinx", "Ten Nasz Zwyczanjny Swiat", "Sorcery", and "Suita Trzy Tysiace". CD features three bonus tracks too – "Trzy Tysiace", "Oleo", and "Ten Nasz Zwyczajny Swiat". CD

Jan Ptaszyn Wroblewski QuartetFlyin Lady ... LP
Polskie Nagrania (Poland), 1978. Near Mint- ... $18.99
A charming little 70s session from Jan Ptaszyn Wroblewski – one of the greatest tenor stars of the Polish jazz scene of the 60s and 70s! Jan's got a style that's a bit like Stan Getz during the same time – warmly carved notes that are perfectly at home in easygoing tunes that allow Wroblewski to stretch out in a mode that's exploratory, yet never too out, and relaxed, but never too sleepy. The titles on the set are all nicely extended, giving Jan plenty of room to roam around – and the backing is by a quartet with guitar, bass, and drums – hitting a groove that's partly modal, and partly electric – almost a bit like that on Getz's Captain Marvel album, but a bit less freewheeling. Titles include "Flyin Lady", "Bossa Nostra", "Pastuszek Stomp", and "Why The Monkey". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Andrzej Kurylewicz QuintetGo Right ... CD
Polskie Nagrania (Poland), 1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful bit of jazz from early 60s Poland – by one of the country's freshest modern jazz groups at the time! The record has a bold sound that's right in keeping with its title – strongly stepping off with a style that blends the soulful and the modern – in a mode that's a bit like the best early 60s work by Ted Curson or Booker Ervin! The group's led by trumpeter Andrzej Kurylewicz, and features some great tenor and flute work by Jan Ptaszyn Wroblewski – an under-acknowledged player with an incredible tone and angular approach to rhythm. The album's a delight throughout – filled with original tracks that sparkle and amaze, and really only the tip of the iceberg to an amazing legacy of Polish jazz in the 60s! Titles include "Yenom On", "Green Eyed Girl", "Go Right", "Obsession", "Nyamaland", and "So So". 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 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

✨✧ Wlodzimierz NahornyJej Portret ... LP
Polskie Nagrania (Poland), 1970. Used ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic set from Polish jazz musician Wlodzimierz Nahorny – a player with a name that's certainly a mouthful, but one with talents who will also leave you breathless! Nahorny shines here on a number of different instruments – with solos on alto sax, flute, and piano – plus some cool harpsichord on one track too – all set to the sophisticated backings of Jan Ptaszyn Wroblewski, who was easily one of Poland's hipper arrangers of the time! The album's got a mix of jazz and orchestration's that's as hip as some of the late 60s CTI sessions – particularly during their years with A&M Records – or with a vibe that's a bit like some of the later Stan Getz projects on Verve, with all the cool, sophisticated touches that would imply! Tracks are all Polish numbers, done instrumentally – which makes for an especially fresh feel to the set – and titles include "Obok Nas", "Wlasnie Tego Dnia", "Jej Portret", "Taki Dzien", and "Mowity Mu".

✨✧ Polish Jazz All StarsAll Stars After Hours – Night Jam Session In Warsaw 1973 ... LP
Polskie Nagrania (Poland), 1973. Used ... Out Of Stock
Very nice stuff from Poland! Although the session seems to have a stock "after hours" feel, it's actually a pretty far-reaching batch of tracks that show all players coming together wonderfully to move way past the usual jam session feel! Just about the only player we recognize here is Zbignew Namyslowski – the great Coltrane-esque reed player – but the rest of the group is pretty darn hip, too, and they all appear to be dedicated modernists with a good mix of free and soulful styles. The record's got four long tracks – pretty darn out versions of Miles Davis' "So What" and "Solar", a mellow take on Horace Silver's "Peace", and a great original called "Neskim Blues".

✨✧ Jorgen Leth & John Tchicai/Igor CaplinskiJazz Jamboree 1962 – No 4 (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Polskie Nagrania/Jazzhus Disk (Japan), 1962. New Copy ... 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

✨✧ Wlodzimierz NahornyZapach Psiej Siersci (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Polskie Nagrania/GAD (Poland), 1981. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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
