Estonia’s Estrada Orchestra are a funky jazz combo that blends the best of groups the The James Taylor Quartet with the soundtrack to the old Starsky & Hutch TV series.
We send a mountain of respect to Charif Megarbane, head honcho of the Cosmic Analog Ensemble, for producing an album that combines the best of jazz, funk, noir, soundtrack music and deep groove. We’re looking forward to more from him!
Cezary Lerski lived in Los Angeles last I remember, and his label should be sainted for providing so many re-releases of classic Polish Jazz. This new series is being handled by Languidity Records, and they also do amazing work. Liza Premiyak of The Calvert Journal has more here.
