  • NADA JOVIC & DUSKO GOJKOVIC QUINTET - Take Me In Your Arms
    in Novi Becej in Yugoslavia on 16 May 1928 and as a 6 months baby came to Belgrade with her parents When she was 12 she got a scholarship for ballet school in Wien From Wien she moved to Heidelberg and later on to Frankfurt In 1949 she came back to Belgrade from Germany to visit her ill mother and stayed there for a while She was dancing full time as a ballerina for National Theatre and singing was her hobby and passion especially jazz Soon she met and falls in love with Al Kovic who was mechanical engineer but his passion was also jazz He played trumpet with RTB Big Band They were both writing lyrics and Al was also contributing in arrangements In 1950 51 Nada apart of dancing for National Theatre sang with Alexander Necak Trio whose repertoire at the time was mostly based on Net King Cole s songs In 1951 when she was 23 Nada and Al moved to Canada where they still live In 1966 they went to New York where they prepared arrangements and lyrics for this album Then they went to Köln to record it with their old friend Dusko Gojkovic who contributed in arrangements and his quintet They never played with these musicians before but anyway they just hired a studio and recorded everything in one day without even having any rehearsal For whatever reason this recording has never been released previously and I need to thank Dusko Gojkovic for discovering it to me Nada is now 74 and currently they are making plans to return to Belgrade Although she recorded with many musicians none of these recordings was ever released This is her first ever release DUSTY GROOVE AMERICA A sweet set of vocal tracks from Germany recorded in 1966

  • BAZAAR - Rare Jazz/Fusion Gems From Polish Vaults vol. 1
    Polish jazz musician The Kitten is a complex and powerful composition that became one of Polish jazz standards later reworked in a several styles This is a milestone of Polish jazz JAN Ptaszyn WROBLEWSKI one of Polish jazz pioneers These two tracks are from 1969 recording with the Jazz Studio Orchestra of the Polish Radio Katorna is more fusiony version then original and includes solos by Tomasz Stanko on trumpet and Zbigniew Namyslowski on alt sax Rajd Safari is exactly what it says Middle eastern sounds you can feel the heat and dust Excellent dreamy solo by Jerzy Milian on vibraphone NOVI SINGERS Rien Ne Va Plus Well known vocal band who s work spans over the decades This is extremely uplifting 70 s style track Very funky and with that 60 s hippie trippy feeling Gilles P tune ZBIGNIEW NAMYSLOWSKI Probably the most known Polish jazz musician Great sax player who s music evolved through decades Five Four Bars is taken from his early 60 s period when he experimented with rhythms This track is from the extremely rare 10 from 1963 Jazz Jamboree volume 3 Samba influenced tune that takes you to the journey from Brazil to Europe and back Excellent bland of styles and feelings POLISH JAZZ QUARTET is formed in 1963 by tenor saxophonist JAN Ptaszyn WROBLEWSKI Another pillar of the band was pianist Wojciech Karolak Rhythm section Juliusz Sandecki on bass and Andrzej Dabrowski on drums Track is taken from the only record they did another rarity under this name If you are into jazz waltz and modality this is your tune DUSTY GROOVE AMERICA Brilliant stuff 10 rare jazz tracks from the Polish scene of the 60s one of the unsung hotbeds of modern jazz in the postwar years For some odd reason Poland was head and shoulders above most of its Eastern European contemporaries when it came to jazz and as you ll hear in this extremely well compiled set the music of the country was easily on a par with the best jazz work coming out of the US or other European nations at the time The focus of the package is on some of the more groove oriented tunes of the time ranging from hard driving big band numbers through modal small group sides and even including a few vocal numbers with a slightly edgy quality MARK TURNER DJ Rocky Rococo Jazzadelica Following up collections from Czechoslovakia Yugoslavia and Russia the latest stop on Cosmic Sounds jazz tour of Eastern Europe is 1960 s Poland And it s a rousing success Among my favorites are the four tracks featuring vibes player Jerzy Milian three under his own name and a fourth as featured soloist with Jan Wroblewski and the Polish Radio Jazz Orchestra Then there s a really swingin track by the Novi Singers one of the all time greatest jazz vocal groups from any country Pianist and film composer Krzystof Komeda perhaps the most familiar name here is oddly represented
