Piotr Baron - "Kaddish" - new album!

Charismatic Polish reedist announces that his 8th album entitled "Kaddish" will hold premiere in May this year. In Jewish tradition Kaddish is a prayer recited for deceased, in this case it is Jan Mazur, journalist, Baron's long-time friend who passed away in 2008.
As I already wrote on occasion of reviewing Baron's "Salve Regina" album, Christian heritage is very important for this artist and his new release will continue the streak of his spiritual enterprises. But Baron's immense talent guarantees that apart from religious message, the album shall offer great music as well.
It will certainly be helped by outstanding line-up since saxophones of the leader will be accompanied by all star rhythm section created by pianist Michał Tokaj, double-bassist Michał Barański and drummer Łukasz Żyta. It should also be noted that playing on trumpet and didgeridoo will appear Piotr Baron's son Adam whom we know from recordings with avantgarde Pink Freud band ("Monster Of Jazz").   
We may share this information courtesy of web site where you can find few interesting files: Polish readers may listen to interview with Piotr Baron (files 1&2), all readers - title track from upcoming release (file 3). The music on this sample track suggest meditative, serious and deep music of the highest quality and I assume that "Kaddish" with all probability will be one of the most significant jazz recordings of year 2011.
