Krzysztof "Komeda" Trzciński !!!

Komeda was a genius! And most definitely one of the seminal jazz musicians of his time. Cesare left a link in the Adam Makowicz post leading to a blog where you'll find a whole lot of Komeda's music. You really HAVE TO click you there and check it out. LINK

Check out this site also, dedicated to Komeda and his music.

Cheers, Basso

Don Paulin recorded a few LPs in the 60s. Most of them are not my cup of tea. This one is! With the help of Ingfried Hoffmann (Why don't you play the organ, man), Siegfried Schwab and all those cats, he recorded a very nice south american influenced LP including classics like Constant Rain (Chove Chuva) and lots of own compositions. Enjoy!


What a lovely album! Listened to all my Linda Lewis LPs
this weekend and I enjoyed them a lot. This one's my fave.
Not because of the great gimmix cover!!
Tracks like Guffer or Goodbye Joanna give me a shiver.
I hope you'll enjoy it, too.

ES (it) is Bernd Kiefer on Bass and Vocals; Zabba Lindner on Drums, Xylophone and Vocals; and Georg Kochbeck on Keyboards [Fender Piano, Solina, Hohner Clavinet D6, Micro Moog, Multi Moog] and Lead Vocals. With the help of some friends like Alto Pappert from Kraan and Alex Conti (Atlantis) they produced a very nice and jazzy "Kraut" LP that I deeply love for those spatial and atmospheric tracks like Dream and Earth And Space. Nevertheless the rest of the album is really worth a nice listening session. Maybe two.... Enjoy!!
