    An intriguing track by saxophonist Adam Pieronczyk on a compilation of Polish jazz artists, 12 or so years back, ushered me into the current Polish scene, and I've been enjoying it since. Adam's latest features guitarist Jean-Paul Bourelly. drummer Francisco Mela was mentored by {m: McCoy Tyner}} so he's honouring that important relationship with a three-album release. While the pianist will change on each album, bassist William Parker will be a constant on Music Frees Our Souls. Matthew Shipp is at the keys for Volume 1. There's a peek at the Vancouver scene, past and present, and a tribute to drummer Jerry Granelli, a man I came to know and respect for his contributions to creative music. You'll be missed, brother. Another drummer—Alvin Fielder—who left us too soon closes this one with a track from The Very Cup Of Trembling.
