Don't be so hard on yourself, John. Everyone's allowed to make ONE mistake :devil:

But what if they are mounting up to say 21?

Incidentally I really rate your P.J.Quartet track. I hope I can find some of the excellent Polish jazz you have promoted at a reasonable price - I'm off to Amazon looking for downloads.

Cheers John


PS here is some Brazilian music you led me to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cmaf6RlvQak&feature=player_detailpage

Hi Mat,
Answering your 1st Question - I believe it to be beautiful, individually styled, jazz piano of the highest quality and I could listen
to her all day playing such.
However I really like her voice and on the whole she concentrates on that aspect, with piano solos as a fill-in, and the theme often being
Bossa Nova style because of her background.
I expect to buy her CD "Dreamer" sometime soon. Sample - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TxKeth4iuo0&feature=player_detailpage
Thank you for giving me this great lead.

Your 2nd point - I reserve judgement - I am not a fan of male jazz singers , and anyway, is this jazz? I leave it to you to enter him for the "recent jazz thread" if you wish.

Hello John,

To be honest, my opinion after having listened to a couple of her tracks is that I miss more up-beat tunes, like the one I posted here. But then again, I've really only listened to a few clips on Youtube. And based on these clips, I have to say I prefer her playing (not that the singing is bad; it's just not as good).

Somehow I knew you wouldn't like this track (even if you didn't clearly state it), but I hope Teddy will give it a listen, as it inculdes a decent soprano sax solo.

Welcome to Polish jazz, Stu.

I see you've been doing your own research, John. That's another good one from Jan (John) Ptaszyn Wróblewski

Hi Mat,
Unbelievable (almost).
This guy (if true) is incredible.
Please tell me this is not a hoax.

Hi John, I was surprised as well but it's not a hoax. He's actually playing an iPad.

Never heard of the band you posted, John. According to the brief info I found on Wiki, they use Polish jazz of the 60s and 70s to create their own music. The above track comes from a 2003 album.
