Andrzej Jagodzinski - Muzyka Polska (2011)


Andrzej Jagodziński is mixing in this pot all usual ingredients he likes so much: philharmonic, folk, jazz vocal with a bit of blue note as played by his trio (Jagodziński plays on piano, Adam Cegielski on bass, Czesław Bartkowski on drums). But the dish tastes rather unattractive: conservative, luscious, sloppy. Music was recorded on account of approaching Poland's presidency (starting 1st July 2011) in the E.U. with intention to remind Europe what is best in Polish folk music. Perhaps the E.U. has granted some money to finance this project and CD will be given free? Only in such a case may I recommend you to come into possession of this average outing...
Finally, let me inform you that singer Grażyna Auguścik took part in this recording and was responsible for some of the arrangements as well. She is good singer indeed but in my humble opinion even her inspired singing could not actually save this album...
