Zbigniew Seifert - City of Spring (1977)




Zbigniew Seifert (7 June 1946 – 15 February 1979) was a Polish jazz violinist. Seifert was born in Kraków, Poland in 1946. He devoted himself to jazz violin, performing with the Tomasz Stańko Quintet from 1970. Seifert was a leading modern jazz violinist by the time of his death from cancer in Buffalo, NY, at the age of 32.

Pay close attention to the last two minutes of this track! -pb
Okay, this was an incredible listen. Thank you for introducing me to this artist!

Is more modern stuff allowed here? I love all jazz but these days mostly listen to more recent stuff. Please redirect me if I'm in the wrong place! :)

For me, GoGo Penguin are one of the most exciting bands. Impeccable musicianship, great compositions, and a very original sound (as far as I have heard). This is off their newest, eponymous album that came out just earlier this year. I'm using a live video because you really have to watch these guys play.

Highly recommended.
