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? 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!
