On this show the featured release is the latest album by Wojtek Mazolewski

Following the rhapsodic response to his debut Whirlwind release—a deluxe edition of Polka which, internationally, broke through into dance clubs and rock and indie festivals—the double bassist now focuses attention on the music of his compatriot Krzysztof Komeda (1931—1969), a legend of Polish jazz and an illustrious Hollywood film composer. When Angels Fall again features his inventive quintet of Oskar Stenmark (trumpet, electronics), Marek Pospieszalski (tenor saxophone), Joanna Duda (Wurlitzer, grand piano) and Qba Janicki (drums, percussion) as they explore the prolific output of this enigmatic and tragically departed creative talent.

As always, in addition to the featured album there is a selection of recent releases with a leaning towards improvisation and the avant-garde.
