Made In Poland (1995)

Easy-going mainstream jazz as usual for Jan Ptaszyn Wróblewski but of the highest quality in terms of purely musical performance. When I am listening to it right now it strikes how much it is indebted in best arangements written for ensambles led by legendary Art Blackey or by then young Charles Tolliver. I mean of course arrangements from 70ties last century, it is therefore more than obvious that music on this disc by no means discovered anything new. It is nonetheless more than just able copy mainly because of musicians who at moments play notes with true authencity and enthusiasm so characteric for jazz music. Piotr Baron on saxophone deserves most praise in this context but Henryk Majewski and Piotr Wojtasik on trumpets, Andrzej Jagodziński on piano and Jacek Olter on drums made no worse impression on me. All in all, I do not regret time spent on rehearsing this oldie.
