Muzyka dla supersamow (2000)

Outstanding! Jerzy Mazzoll, a clarinetist, enjoys on our scene somewhat a status of Thelonius Monk, Albert Ayler or Cecil Taylor. Undoubtely one of greatest innovayors by many he is still seen as force a bit too unpredictabile and out of control. Yet exactly because of such his traits he never ceases to surprise thus reviving spirit of freedom in Polish jazz. 

On this album he decided to enter a dialogue with major social changes that take place in Polish society since it adopted capitalism in 1989. One of its manifestions is spreading of great shopping centers in cities. They become places where people not only meet, they also stroll, flirt, pray. It is therefore great move by Mazzoll and his collegues to bring improvised music into such a space and let it resound it with an atmosphere of those places. In this task he was accompanied by his long time friend Tomek Gwinciński on drums and guitar, legendary trumpeter Andrzej Przybielski, Daniel Mackiewicz on keyboards and Michał Skrok who was responsible for electronically  generated samples.  

Music is challenging in best meaning of this word: communicative, obvioulsly referring to elevator-type typical supermarket music (tracks' titles are simply names of products in shop) but at the same time a bit weird, unquieting and very inspiring. Speaking shortly, outstanding achievement and clearly influencing by its aesthetics many projects of younger generation musisians such as as Pink Freud, SzaZa or recently Horny Trees.
