Polish trumpeter and composer Piotr Schmidt returns, undeterred by the pandemic that is changing the face of our globe, to share with us some joyful moments inspired by the music we love so much.

Supported by his regular quartet, which includes top Polish Jazz musicians: pianist Wojciech Niedziela, bassist Maciej Garbowski and drummer Krzysztof Gradziuk, Schmidt presents a set of nine wonderful original compositions and two arrangements of compositions by the Godfather of Polish Jazz, Krzysztof Komeda, which offers a highly aesthetic Jazz experience, superbly amalgamating the mainstream Jazz tradition and more open European attitudes. Two North American players, Canadian guitarist Matthew Stevens and US saxophonist Walter Smith III, guest on six of the tracks, transforming the quartet into a quintet and spicing the proceedings with an enhanced instrumental variety.
