Many jazz musicians in Poland consider playing and/or recording the music of Poland's father of jazz, Krzysztof Komeda, a rite of passage. A similar feeling exists with most jazz musicians anywhere about the music of Thelonious Monk, John Coltrane, Ornette Coleman and more. This episode features some recordings that follow that path. Saxophonist Dan Willis tackles Monk on his new latest release, while Miguel Zenon fronts a European band in an Ornette-inspired set. Canadian drummer Ivan Bamford and his Eyevin Nonet dig into some unreleased large compositions of the late Thomas Chapin. A few off-the-wall bands —Weird Box, Fergus Quill Trio, Treesearch and Amok Amor make an appearance, and there's even some sort-of vintage tunes from Charles Lloyd, Bill Frisell and Kahil El'Zabar. Enjoy!
