Wołanie o słońce nad światem (Polskie Nagrania Muza, 1971)

This is simply terrific album evidencing what influence rock or as it was called in Poland "big beat" had on Polish Jazz in 60ties and even more in 70ties. Such names as Tomasz Stańko, Zbigniew Seifert or Michał Urbaniak taking part in its recording should persuade you that it is worth listening to this little gem! If you happen to know Polish language then your pleasure will be doubled because texts are very strong side of this album (written by poets Leszek Moczulski and Jerzy Ficowski). Set up in 1966 this band in 1969 won a prize at famous Jazz Nad Odrą Festival. Individual award went then to vocalist Andrzej Zaucha who was destined to make great career later in Poland and whose tragic end made him a cult singer in our country. "Wołanie o słońce nad światem" (transl. the cry for was the sun over the world) when released became a major success but the band unfortunately dissolved in next year. And although it was reactivated in 1978  Dżamble never got momentum back to record new material. Great pity!
