POLISH JAZZ!!! Czesław Bartkowski – Drums Dream

located this little gem amongst long forgotten records under my parents house……”A drum-heavy set from Polish percussionist Czeslaw Bartkowski — mostly solo with occasional accompaniment on trumpet, electric piano, and soprano sax — plus some sneaky big band arrangements toward the end! Sparce & moody spring to mind, melodic yeah…listen to it to know –some say similar to Max Roach’s solo percussion efforts (i.e. Bartkowski isn’t super caught up with getting too free. Some tracks are fleshed out with a fuller sound by Jan Ptaszyn Wroblewski orchestrations……players on the record include Tomasz Szukalski, Tomasz Stanko, and Adam Makowicz.”

Does technology improve or destroy the overall quality of music available to us?

Jazz composer Henry Threadgill:

“The one good thing about record companies is that they served as a way of separating a lot of meaningless music from being recorded,” he says. “They gave contracts to people they thought deserved contracts. I don’t really think we lost anybody. Everybody got picked up. As way out as people thought we were, we got picked up by a record company. We could have a Caruso, we got Muddy Waters, we got Ornette Coleman — who did we miss?”

Now, according to Threadgill, we’re just inundated by the good and the bad, all lost in a wash of data.

“This is how I can disappear into the horizon. There’s just too many people. Too many amateurs, too many people that don’t even rank even as amateurs. I can’t do anything about that. That’s just reality. It’s going to be that way in every medium. Technology allows people to do it. Next thing, we’ll be going and looking for a brain surgeon that doesn’t know anything about brain surgery.”
