I think it is starting to sink in with me how much wonderful jazz there is from
groups around the world.
I am starting to follow this up but it requires considerable time

Mat. David Newton is, as you state, a delightful pianist, both solo and in accompaniment . I often saw him when he was resident in Edinburgh for a few years before he headed off to London.

There is a song called A Story of Polish Jazz, which is a mix between jazz and hip hop. Basically, it tells... the story of Polish jazz. Most of the artists get to play a short solo after being mentioned in the lyrics. It's a brilliant idea, really.

I can't find a link to post here. But maybe some of you will be able to listen to it on Spotify or Last.fm or somewhere else. There are two versions of the song - Polish and English. I suggest you listen to the latter. :cool:

Let me know what you think.

Yes, that's the one, Teddy. Well, almost. Because it should be ten minutes long. The Polish version is available here. I didn't post it before because the whole point is for you to be able to understand the lyrics. So unless you speak Polish... :p

I think most of you probably realise I am into Polish jazz.
But teddy I did enjoy Jumbo - it demonstrates again how wide a field jazz covers.

It certainly does John, and Mat, I did enjoy the music even without understanding the words. Music really is an international language

Thanks Mat,
You've added to my already developed theory that Poland has a great Jazz scene.
Cheers John

Good stuff Mat. I did manage to see Tomasz Stanko a couple of times, once with altoist Lee Konitz.
