Say what you want about the state of the country itself, but Poland is
The Place for jazz. Mazzoll etc. combines all the free-spiritedness
of Sun Ra with the technical skills of Miles and mixes in a good blend
of punk rock aggression to top it off.
Here: imagine, if you will, an awesome jazz combo with just the
bestest horns are up on stage, and Darby Crash (the Germs) comes out
on stage and starts screaming incoherently at the top of his lungs and
writhing around on stage, cutting himself with glass and the whole
traditional shebang, and you've sort of got a picture of what these
guys sound like. Now, I'm not sure about the whole glass cutting and
writhing bit, but I wouldn't be the slightest bit surprised if it
happens at their shows.
