Tribute To Komeda (aka We'll Remember Komeda)

LP (Item 7567) MPS, 1976 — Condition: Near Mint-

A fantastic tribute to the great Polish soundtrack composer Krzysztof Komeda – recorded in 1972 for MPS records by a group of Eastern European modernists that were among some of his closest associates! Players include the great trumpeter Tomasz Stanko, who also plays piano on the set; Michael Urbaniak, the famous sax and violin player who worked closely with Komeda in the 60s; Attilla Zoller, the great guitarist with a wonderful tone that rarely got heard in the West; and Urszula Dudziak, the amazing singer who's performing here at the prime of her career. The set features 6 of Komeda's best compositions – all rearranged by Stanko, Zoller, or Michael Urbaniak, but very much in a way that's in keeping with Komeda's genius! The tracks mix together jazz and soundtrack soundscapes, with slight touches of MPS production, in an approach that adds a bit of groove to Komeda's modernist vision. Titles include "Rosemary's Baby", "Kattorna", "The Trumpet Player Is Innoncent", and "Crazy Girl".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(US pressing.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
