Leszek Możdżer - Kaczmarek by Możdżer (2010)

Leszek Możdżer, arguably the most recognized Polish jazz pianist, is musician I already wrote three presenting his mainstream jazz recordings ("Time"), free jazz ("Asthmatic") and, in last post, classical music face ("Chopin"). But Możdżer's multi-faced personality still contains land unexplored because he is also very active in the field of film music. First he began to collaborate with Zbigniew Preisner, a film music composer, famous for being author to films directed by Krzysztof Kieślowski, but his relationship with Jan A. P. Kaczmarek, dating back to 1999, has become as much fruitful resulting in numerous soundtracks for films among which is Oscar winning track for Marc Foster Finding Neverland (2004).
Możdżer play on this record is very emotional. He builds moods with space and light, using very simple means, though music is infinitely refined. Honestly speaking this music has little in common with jazz if we define it as syncopated music. What we hear here is one of the greatest jazz-man making music, a person who clearly outgrown the limits of jazz as genre, but still remaining part of Polish jazz.
Please listen to this wonderful music, I present you Piano Variation from Unfaithful movie:
