Tomasz Stanko was considered the first free-jazz trumpeter in
Europe. He debuted at the end of the 1950s in Krakow and in the
1960s joined Krzysztof Komeda’s quintet, later recording a masterpiece
of European jazz, the album 'Astigmatic'.
In the early 1970s he was part of the international free jazz scene
and performed at major European festivals with his Tomasz Stanko
Quintet. In the 1980s Stanko played with Cecil Taylor, and led his own
bands that incorporated reggae, latino, electronic, and rap inspirations.
This album – recorded live in West Germany and unavailable for
40 years – was newly remastered for optimal sound.
