    Just a word to put some great music by a super nice acquaintance out there. Jacek is a native of Poland who has visited here at UofL on several occasions as a guest artist as part of our "Open World" program. He's a great jazz bassist, and he has just released a CD of solo bass material, and it is absolutely wonderful....creative, spontaneous, swinging, in tune, well recorded, tasteful, in tune, full of spirit, joyous, in tune....did I mention that Jacek has great intonation? :D

    So far, Jacek has been too humble to post this material himself, but I asked him if he would mind if I wrote a little post about his record, and he said "sure". The record is called Bassville, and as far as I know is available only in Poland at the moment.

    The first excerpt is Night and Day. The second is called Raymondo Bassmondo. I'll be trying to find out how folks from outside of Poland can get copies of this great record. In the meantime, ENJOY! :)

    Thank you for posting these excerpts.

    I’m inspired by his clever use of rhythm, harmonics, double stops and intertwining of the melody and bass line. :bassist:

    Do you think CD Baby is an appropriate place to make it available outside Poland?

    That's really nice! What a player....I like the fact that, even with all his chops, he ends up just playing music.

    It would be great to see this CD available in the US. At the very least, it would be something to listen to when my solo chops need a good a$$-whuppin'.
  4. Hi guys

    Nice to hear that some of you have heard of the guys like Jacek.

    I aspire to attend his classes, as I am now preparing for a whole year for the exams on the june of 2007. It is a dream for me to have him as a Teacher.

    Bassville is nbelievably great music - I listen to it on daily basis.

    Cheers to all!
  5. I had exactly the same reaction, very inventive and tuneful
    use of all four strings. I'd like to hear more.
  6. Had to listen again. I love to hear such pure, original music.
    Who else do you all know of who plays solo bass in a unique (to me anyway) and original manner. I need to be listening to something new so I'd welcome some suggestions.

    Thanks Chris.....very nice indeed. I think the suggestion about CD Baby is a great one. It will cost him a mininmal amount to post it on there and he'll have instant distribution.
