Polish composer Jerzy Milian in 73, 75, 78








The material looked interesting especially the ballet / classical album at the top, but proved a bit disappointing in comparison to other such third stream or funk-fusion finds from Eastern Europe.  Which surprised me, as the region tends to be pretty solid in the seventies.
From discogs:

Jerzy Stanisław Milian (April 10, 1935 – March 7, 2018) was a jazz musician, painter, composer and vibraphonist.

A track from 1975 that reminds me a lot of the better known, and perhaps superior J. Stivin:





I apologize for throwing together all three albums here in one file, or to use the correct idiotic verbiage, 'we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.'  Actually, I really don't give a dang about your inconvenience.  How about the inconvenience of having to listen to my wife complain all day about me spending my time on this blog and music?

  3. Thanks Julian, have always loved these albums, particularly the 1975 one (give it another listen!) . There seems to have been a whole series of his 60s-70s radio recordings (DDR Big Band etc) released over the last five years, see https://www.discogs.com/label/461966-Jerzy-Milian-Tapes. I've just got two tracks from the first of these : https://www48.zippyshare.com/v/ZqT20bgi/file.html
