Universal Music Polska 2012

(A first review in the long time, and after this weekend they should be much more frequent. Also the radio programs.)
I have recently written about this bands' concert and now I have pleasure of listening to the same material again. More studio-polished but still remaining it's horse & power vigour.
Wojtek Mazolewski, the leader of the band,  is a public figure in Poland, one of the few jazz(y) musicians that made it to the mainstream, that get played in the national radio and Pink Freud's music explains well why it is so.

Jazz Alchemist radio archives : with Paul McCartney and for some things completely different

Summer's coming. and the level of activity on the blog will depend mostly on the weather, yet i'm  hoping to scrub off some time for writing more often. In the meantime enjoy this program that aired originally on 15.06.2009, it was done in the typically summer-break mood, with Beatles songs (Paul McCartney's birthday is coming| on June 18) and overally more leisure, chill-out set with some folk, rock, brass bands, pop tunes and and else for something completely different.

a break

I promise there will be more and soon on the blog, a couple of archival radio playlists at the very least. Thank you for your patience. In the meantime - does anyone know a nice room/place to rent in Krakow? possibly near the Kazimierz district :) Anyway, wish me luck, it keeps me a bit busy for the moment.
