A pair of albums from Northern European artists demonstrate a similar approach in this episode—improvising upon the folk melodies of their countries—Poland's Irek Wojtczak and his Folk Five and Finland's Hot Heros. For Wojtczak, he's just happy to see his recording available: the radio station that was recording the live concert lost the tapes, but fortunately, like a lot of other musicians, he recorded the shows himself. Hot Heros is a trio with connections to another prominent Finnish band: Black Motor. Sami Sippola was Black Motor's original saxophonist while bassist Ville Rauhala plays for both trios. Saxophonist Quinsin Nachoff debuts a new recording with his group, Flux. Quinsin has really focused on compositions that were inspired by a residency at the National Music Center in Calgary. The official release for Path of Totality is early 2020, but an early copy just happened to make its way to One Man's Jazz. And there's plenty of other excellent music from the world of creative music for you as well in this episode.
