Komeda on steroids
This is my first time with new Simpliciter from Pyer & NYSTHI cooperative team. In this patch I use some record from my old vinyl. I was recorded this two year ago from my gramophone. this is a fragment of “Ballet Etudes” by Krzysztof Komeda.
Krzysztof Komeda, responsible Krzysztof Trzciński (born on April 27, 1931 in Poznań, died on April 23, 1969 in Warsaw) - Polish composer and jazz pianist, creator of world-renowned jazz standards and film music. A pioneer of modern jazz in Poland. Most often he performed with his own sextet (founded in 1956). He wrote music for 65 films. The first film illustrated musically by Komeda was a film etude by Roman Polański, Two People with a Wardrobe (1958), and the director’s last film - Rosemary’s Baby (USA, 1968), with the famous “Lullaby” as the leitmotif. Laryngologist doctor by profession.
As a jazz musician, he had an important influence on the formation of the original style, described as the Polish jazz school, which after the artist’s tragic death influenced the development of the international jazz scene, especially the avant-garde of the 70s of the twentieth century centered around the ECM publishing house.
