:::Question Mark:::

Posted: Saturday, 27 March 2010 by jazzlover in Etykiety: , , , ,

One of the lesser-known players of the Polish jazz scene of the 70s -- but a heck of a great saxophonist who stretches out nicely here in post-Coltrane reedom, but also manages to groove a bit too! The session has Janusz Muniak on both tenor and soprano sax -- working with a quintet in styles that range from open and almost free, to more inside and tightly grooving, with a sweeter electric feel. Instrumentation in the group includes electric piano, guitar, bass, and drums -- and the feel here is almost like some of the directions the Impulse Records scene of the 70s took their Coltrane inspiration when they electrified the rhythms, and tightened things up a bit. Titles include "Obertas", "Taniec Pawia", "Znak Zapytania", and "Przejazdzka Walcem".
