Jerzy Milian for Muza Poland from 1975.
Wow what a treat - Another lp I had been hunting down for many years but which always went for just too much.Then I picked up a vinyl rip (cheers Noreille !) and now wonder of wonders it's been reissued on CD- I bought one direct from Poland which I have ripped for this post @320.Dusty Groove have it back in stock again after a long wait so if you like it get over there quick and buy one.Here's their review:
Funky genius from Poland's Jerzy Milian -- a vibes player we normally know in much smaller settings, but who sounds great here in an MPS-styled big band album from the 70s! The tracks are relatively short and punchy -- all with some great rhythms and a fair bit of drum breaks too -- so much so that the record easily sounds like some of the best sound library albums coming from Western Europe in the early 70s -- a sublime blend of tight grooving and sweetly jazzy touches! Along with Jerzy's vibes, the record also has some great keyboards and funky flute too -- plus some occasional wordless vocals that scat nicely along at the bottom of the grooves -- creating a feel that's almost like the best work of Janko Nilovic!
