Seifert, Zbigniew - Man of the Light (24-bit remaster/mini-lp sleeve)

SKU 21-Promising 441122
Very good record, somewhere between jazz and jazz/rock. With Joachim Kuhn (piano), Cecil McBee (bass), Billy Hart (drums) and guest Jasper Van't Hof (electric piano and organ).

"Among the few world reknown jazz violinists Zbigniew Seifert stands out as a peculiar figure. This man stepped into jazz only by accident, that is "to impress the girls". Seifert, born in Krakow in 1946, passed the classical exams as an obligation since he already had other things in mind, i.e. how to create an individual jazz vocabulary on his main instrument. Seifert loved to explain that he plays the violin like he imagines that John Coltrane would have treated it. Coltrane was a big influence to him. With giant and successful steps Zbiggy stepped into the western world: From 1970 on he amazed the scene in the States, recorded with Miles Davis sidemen, with Oregon and Kenny Barron to name but a few. It is from this highly creative period that this MPS recording gem stems. "Man of The Light" includes six pieces which showcase Seifert's playing in a beautiful way. What a pity Seifert died too early, in 1979. Originally released on MPS in 1977."

"A true desert island disc; one of the most exhilarating, important, and underexposed jazz albums ever recorded." — John Kelman, All About Jazz
