About this album

This exclusive 2009 special edition CD commensurate the 30th anniversary of the death of world famous, outstanding Polish violinist Zbigniew Seifert. This absolutely outstanding disc include Seifert's eight compositions in the new arrangement by Jarek Smietana. For recordings Jarek invited nine some of world's leading jazz violinists, such as Didier Lockwood, Jerry Goodman, Mark Feldman, Christian Howes, Pierre Blanchard, Krzesimir Debski, Maciej Strzelczyk, Adam Baldych, and Mateusz Smoczynski. You can call it "the world jazz violin summit". Very energetic and vivid record wit many different styles of violin, all bonded by superior Smietana's band.

*****

This year marks the 30th anniversary of the sad death of the phenomenal world-renowned violinist Zbigniew Seifert jazz. Zbyszek was my friend and one of my first teachers of jazz. I also had the honor to play with him and record a live album "Kilimanjaro". So I thought that this 30 anniversary is an appropriate moment to recall how an exceptional musician he was, and how original was music he wrote.  The concept album is simple. I chose eight compositions by Seifert, arranged and recorded them with my band and then invited some of the greatest jazz violinists in the world and in Poland, so that everyone have played one song. If those recordings will re-introduce the music and Zbigniew Seifert to the world, then the goal of all musicians who honorably participated in the recording, will be achieved.  (Jarek Smietana)

Top notch.

I wish that Itunes would make MORE of his music availible.This CD is good,but it would have been nice to hear Zbiggy himself.
