Album Notes
Every nation has it's music. We Poles own a unique treasure, which we don't appreciate enough – our native culture. Instead of recording American jazz songs with Polish musicians, which
is commonly done, I have decided to record Polish folk songs in a jazz way with Americans. Each of the artists picked out one tune from the lengthy books compiled by Oskar Kolberg.
The rest of the program is filled with my original songs, fully inspired by Polish folk music. The direct inspiration for this album was the energy and the vibrancy of the Polish folk and the virtuosity of my friends, who agreed to travel all the way to Poland for this recording session. 
I would hope that ZOŚKA gives people the feeling of the beauty flowing from the Polish character.

I was always inspired to create music which embodies Polish vitality, and decided to do this
for you in the creation of this album.
