Jerzy Milian - 80 (CD)

25,00 zł 

Best introduction into the multidimensional and swinging world of Jerzy Milian!



On 10 April 2015 Jerzy Milian will be 80 years old. We are celebrating this anniversary birthday together with the Master and offer a look back at the half-century-long creativity period. From „Memory of Bach” to... „Memory of Bach”.

This exceptional, jubilee record includes the most important compositions from the works by Jerzy Milian, although not always in their most obvious versions. There are traces of long cooperations with Gunter Gollasch orchestra and the Belgium big-band of BRT Radio, not to mention the Orkiestra Rozrywkowa Polskiego Radia i Telewizji w Katowicach. There is also a place for lyrical ballads (including original version of the theme from „Tempus Jazz 67” ballet) and a few fiery virtuoso performances on the vibraphone. We invite you to celebrate Jerzy Milian’s 80th birthday together with us!

The record includes mostly unpublished compositions – a few of them had their debut earlier in the „Jerzy Milian Tapes” series, a few of them will appear nowhere else apart from this record. An album issued in conjunction with special live reunion of Katowice's Orkiestra (9 April 2015 in Katowice). Limited edition – 500 copies, no represses.
